Network Engineer is thinking to move to Switzerland

Hello Everybody,

First I would like to thank you all by sharing your experience and your knowledge.

I am a network engineer and currently working for an internet service provider in the UK.

My questions are:

What are salary expectations as a network engineer with 08years experience and German electrical engineering degree(Fachhochsule) and good linguistic skills(English,French and German)?.

do you know any companies looking for a network engineer(cisco, juniper)?.

Thanks in advance.

Peacelover.

Yo,

Assume you're moving to Lausanne there will be no problems for opportunities - I use jobup.ch daily it's pretty good.

As for Salary requirements, it's not something that's generally talked about socially here in CH - I'll PM you some numbers

Mark

Considering your profile, you might want to get in touch and have a few beers with the folks at SWINOG, the Swiss Network Operators Group .

Hello,

The best place to find elite job opportunities like for an experienced Cisco engineer (assuming you have enterprise experience and the certs) is on http://www.qual.ch

It's an elite recruitment website that focuses only on top prestigious companies and large organizations.

There's also info and articles on their blog http://qual-features.com but for street info, this forum is much better and more immediate/reactive.

Re: Network Engineer is thinking to move to Switzerland

Hello everybody! Let me reopen the thread. I'm a network system engineer working for an international telco corporation, with a university degree in my field and a CCNP certificate. I've been working as a network engineer for the last 4 years + spent additional 5 years studying it in school. I've written and implemented hundreds of various configurations, implementation plans, site diagrams, etc. I have also some basic teaching experience - I've held a few technical presentations for new system engineers and project managers in our company, I've had a few co-workers under my command as well. So to say, I am not just some random1st line support guy, I can handle larger projects, but surely don't know everything . I can speak English fluently + lower-intermediate French (learning).
I have the same question as peacelover asked when he opened the topic. What would be the appropriate salary expectation for my knowledge/skills in Geneve area? I would really appreciate if somebody could PM some numbers. Do you know of any company that's hiring network staff? Thanks a lot in advance!
