Re: help

Help us help you

What is your professional background, experience, current industry etc.?

Where are you hoping to live - German part or French part of CH
(if important)?

Fill things out a bit and I am sure that someone will be able to give you some good and specific feedback.

I would say off the bat that your language skills might open some doors (subject to the rest of the info of course).

EU passport certainly helps (I assume you have one?).

In any event, good luck.

Verbier

Re: help

One of things that I am thinking is either the private banking or trading businesses where your Russian might be a real asset.

Banks and international trading companies that are dealing with Russia are always looking for people who read/write/speak Russian. These companies are normally situated in the Zurich or Geneva-Lausanne area.

What is your level in Russian?

Hopefully someone will offer some more concrete suggestions. You will probably want to send your CV to several of the employment agencies that deal with the banks and trading companies. You will also want to look at the on-line job sites (someone might be able to suggest some).

Hello Полина,

Well, what you can do is to look at biggest CH banks, UBS for example, and to look at their web sites. Usually they have a "we hire" form.
