Re: Architecture/Design Industry: Does it exist in Geneva?!

Then look a bit harder and stop feeling sorry for yourself. I dont know about Geneva specifically, but I recently did a similar search for interior design/architecture companies for a friend. Get a German or French translation for the equivalent terms for interior design etc and even a job search on jobs.ch yields results.

There are plenty of architecture/interior/design firms in Geneva. I don't know why you are having such a hard time finding them.
Have you asked the oracle?

Just what I've been looking for. Thanks - there is an English version of the web site but it looks like most job adverts are in German though

bbkins - look here also, there's loads of them

Re: Architecture/Design Industry: Does it exist in Geneva?!

So while on this topic....can anyone tell me what an architect who has been working in the industry for 13 years ( 10 in Australia) would expect to earn per month brutto? And are there many positions around? Preferably not in Basel. Maybe the french part eg. Lausanne, Vevey? Or even Zurich. I have looked on the Architects.com site but there is no mention of pay. I would really appreciate any information.

Dave.....I was hoping for a semi-serious figure. Is this really a genuine reality?

I wish I knew . . . please let us know if you find out.

The link I sent earlier has quite some vacancies in Zurich. If you speak german (and can work in it) im sure you will fly in.

good luck

a little high dont you think Dave?!
