Advice on job prospects - Geneva, Lausanne - for Editor/TEFL teacher

Hi there,

I'm hoping to move to the French speaking part of Switzerland in March to look for work. My girlfriend is Swiss and there's not much work in Ireland.

I intend to enroll in French classes in Lausanne to study for the DELF and I'll have enough money to last for about three months. I have lower intermediate French at the moment.

I am a bit concerned about job prospects though.

I'm an editor and journalist by trade, with good qualifications and eight years experience working with magazines, brochures, newsletters and websites.

I also hold a CELTA Pass B, though do not much teaching experience.

I was thinking that between some freelance editorial work and some freelance English teaching I might be able to pay the bills, while looking for something more permanent in one of the NGOs or international companies based there. Just wondering how realistic is this notion?

Any advice or tips greatly appreciated.
