job seeking in lugano - opinions and advice please

First of all i would like to greed everyone as i am a new member here!

And i would really appreciate u r help about something. I just moved from Athens Greece to Lugano in order to stay permanently and find a job here. My mother already lives here the last 4 years as a teacher in greek language so i thought it was a good opportunity to come and stay here as well. My italian are not excellent but i can easily communicate. I have studied 'Administration economique et sociale' in a french university and my english skills are in proficiency level. I have work experience already in Vodafone company, in bank area and in the Academic field as i was a personal assistant in the National technical univeristy of Athens at the research department. I have sent many c.v.'s so far but things are quite difficult in lugano. Please do u have something to suggest me in order to find a job? at first i dont care if the job it's not in my field...i just cant stay without working...Thank u so much in advance!

Hi,

Did you find a job? I also had a hard time finding a job in Lugano, but once I found one its was alot easier changing. You should try agencies that help you find a job in different sectors. If you need the list of agencies let me know I will send you a list.

Peace,

Naked

Re: job in lugano

Hello Raph,

yes please send me the list of agencies, or pls give some advise about getting a job in Lugano.

I only speak English and French, little bit Spanish, and not at all Italian and German.. I may work in an office, hotel or teach English. Do you think it is generally possible to get a job in Lugano without speaking their national languages??

Thanks,

Cathy.

Hi Cathy,

What are you past working experience? Its possible to find a job without knowing the national languages, their are some international companies in Ticino where the spoken language is English.

For the list of agencies in Lugano I must search for it because its been awhile since I've used it and it might need a dusting up...

PM with your coordinates and once I find it I will send it to you.

Cheers,

Naked

Is your husband/partner here with a job offer in hand? Because otherwise, you fall under the non-EU hiring rules so a Swiss employer has to apply for a permit on your behalf.
