New in Geneva, Looking for job and company to hang out.

Hi everybody,
i come from Kosovo, recently moved into Geneva, living with my wife here.
i have a bachelor degree on mechanical engineering,and currently i am looking for a job, and new friends.
I have started to speak a little french,but my English is pretty good.i am interested on knowing people that work here and companies that hire English speakers.
I am good with computers, technology, sports etc.
If anyone could help me with these things i would be thankful.

Best Regards, Dardan.

Re: New in Geneva, Looking for job and company to hang out.

Why Geneva as a residence without a job ?
Did you applied already to abb, alstolm etc.?
Currently the engineering sector in switzerland has massive cost problems, jobs have been cut, parts of of companys will be sold (even abb is a candidate).

Re: New in Geneva, Looking for job and company to hang out.

as I mentioned before my wife lives here (born and raised).
I havet try abb yet, even that a friend has proposed me already.
as I have seen it is really hard here to find a job,considering that I am a young engineer and I have not a lot of experience.

Welcome to the forum and to Switzerland Dardan.

It might be worth looking at taking a Masters degree here to improve your chances. Most Masters are taught in English.

Re: New in Geneva, Looking for job and company to hang out.

CERN, near Geneva, apparently works in English and French. This job site lists a Mechanical Technician opening at CERN:

This Auslandschweizer-Organisation web page has a list of internet job sites in Switzerland and a list of newspapers useful for job hunting:

Good luck!

Who cares (referring to your original remark)? And why do you feel that urge to react to this?

Recognized by Europe?

Why is then the flag of the so called 'Kosovo' banned?

The policy lists a few examples of banned flags, including the Kosovo, Crimea, Palestine and Basque flags.

Hahahah, you are taking eurovizion as an example? Your funny.
Look iv been hearing these stupid arguments since 1999, and they are not stoping , cause of idiot people like your self.
Let me tell you something , you take a trip with a car or a airplane, and go to kosovo, in the border you will see * Welcome to republic of kosovo*.
The police are from republic of kosovo.
The cars are RKS republick of kosovo, go ask anybody for a documnet , youll se there * REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO*
i admit that we are slowly integrating in europian system because of some blind people like you , that are trying to slow us down , but dont worrie we will 100 % be there.
Thats it my friend, im sorry to let you down , but that is reality , and is not good to be a sleep and watch dreams for long time. Just accept the truth and move on , cause your not going to go far with those bullshits.
Dont write at me again.
F#ck your self. Bye

What point? You started the mud slinging. Okay you may not agree that Kosovo is a republic, but there's no need to behave like this. Just go away and ignore this thread and let people who want to contribute to the question asked do so.

Re: New in Geneva, Looking for job and company to hang out.

Even if YOU consider Kosovo part of Serbia, the OP can STILL say he's from Kosovo. Just like someone can say they come from Vaud or California or Quebec or Crimea.

But you just needed to post to stir up sh!t. Well done.

Indeed, he can. So why is he then dwelling on 'kosovo being republic, passport, borders,... etc.'..

With a grand concluding sentence.

Just as an illustration. He made my day, must admit.
