Of course she could!

I had the opportunity to talk with her almost an hour and I can tell you that she has helped me a lot with her experience and really profound knowledge of recruitment in CH.

Pat gave me answers to all my questions, and when one writes a good CV and ML there must be a whole bunch of questions, esp. if you're not in the country and it is going to be your first suiss job application experience.
Therefore, you can imagine how important it was for me to have someone competent, patient, kind and eager to help when I needed it most? I'm sure you'd appreciate her help, too.

Besides, PatMc can pull out her ace up her sleeve anytime and maybe find some offer for the job opportunity you need...
