Re: Responsibilities prior to going on RAV ?

For the RAV, but also for your sanity, document everything you do to try to find work, in a daily log. If you bring along such a log to your RAV appointments, the advisor will know you're serious, will bother you less and in the best case may even help you to find work.
  • Improving your command of the Swiss langauge in your area (reading, writing, speaking, listening) with online courses, re-working your notes from previous courses attended, YouTube videos, practicing with a local
  • Phonecalls and mails to former colleagues and trainers in Switzerland and abroad
  • Reading online about latest requirements in your field
  • Renewing knowledge from previous education
  • Reading online about latest requirements in other fields into which you might enter
  • Updating your cv and potential application letters, including versions to tailor both for specific emphasis
  • Online searching for jobs , including researching the employer/project for bettter tailoring
  • Actual job applications.

Some people are liberated by not having to be in that job. Others are surpised to find that they fall into something of a dark place while they have to re-orient their daily activities. For this, and also to be ready to jump at an employement chance that comes your way, it can be good to have a look at other matters that could improve your employability, and to catch up on aspects of life for which you haven't had time up till now such as
  • attending to any health issues (e.g. physio exercises after your accident, or getting new reading glasses)
  • improving your skills in all things electronic and relevant applications
  • public speaking
  • interview skills
  • checking your wardrobe
  • understanding/practicing alternatives for commuting to potential new jobs, etc.
Source: a friend was asked by the RAV advisor about how much time he was spending, per week, on such skills, to improve his employability, and was even asked to prove documentation of his efforts.

Re: Responsibilities prior to going on RAV ?

As an aside: remember to buy accident insurance.

Currently it is through your employer, and I think you can extend it for 30 days beyond your last working day. After that, you need it from your medical insurance and must pay this premium yourself, until you get back into a scheme with a subsequent employer.

RAV provides registered job-seekers with Suva accident insurance which should be adequate.

RAV provides limited support for registered job-seekers who become ill while registered with RAV. RAV will pay only the first 30 days of sickness and up to a maximum of 44 sick days during the qualified period (Rahmenfrist). However, it is possible for many job-seekers to continue with the daily allowance sickness insurance (short-term disability) of their former employer or to take out their own short-term disability insurance policy.

Further information on insurance provided by RAV is at posts 34, 35 and 38 at this link:

Re: Responsibilities prior to going on RAV ?

I can recommend searching for a Job (anything goes , when the salary is adaquate), to receive a "zwischenverdienst", in the range of 50-80 % of the usual work.
So you will get more money (zwischenverdienst and RAV Payment),calm your agent, save valuable time of your "Rahmenfrist" , possibly make some connections.
I can recommend using the unemployment payment from the canton, not the unia, because it is more hasslefree.
I can recommend following website for your jobhunt:

www.jobagent.ch

When you are registered at the local RAV, you can upload your cv , permits .There will be a form , where you enter your applications as well and the status
