Re: Is something wrong with me? I can't find a job

Ok. So how long have you been looking? The Swiss recruit terribly slow and even more carefully at the moment. When the economy was booming a couple of years ago, it took me some months to find a job. At the moment you are very lucky to find a job in less than six months.

Re: Is something wrong with me? I can't find a job

halllooooo! why is everyone in denial? it suuuucks out there and there does not have to be anything wrong with OP. basic laws of supply/demand.. there are lots and lots of very qualified people looking for jobs who are in CH or wanting to get here to live and work. I personally know several people who are jobless for close to 2 years...

Re: Is something wrong with me? I can't find a job

Sorry you are having such a hard time... it is a difficult moment to be looking for a job, even in Switzerland.

I am sure there isn't anything wrong with you - as many are experiencing the same. It is even more difficult for non-Swiss/or non C-permit holders. I am afraid you'll need some more patience. If you do have your work permits in order, have you checked if you qualify for unemployment? that may help you while you look for a job...

BTW, I wonder how come - with the crisis in, and some un-employment around, have you noticed that real estate is higher than ever???

What kind of market then. I find there is plenty of jobs, people just dont want to do them ....their choice.

I get offers here and there. why cause I started low (way overqualified) but it was to get my foot in the door and that trick still works. All the offers are internal before being put out for others to see.
