Longtime EF Member Looking for Clerical Work

Dearest EF members


Due to fewer English lessons available at my current job as English teacher at a state school, I'm looking to return to my original position as administrative assistant. I'm looking for a 100% job in an international environment. Being extremely reliable,innovative and resourceful, I have aquired sterling references. I speak fluent Swiss German, have C1 writing skills in German and am a native English speaker. My work skills are excellent and my excel skills are above par. I'm available immediately for work in the Zug/Zürich and Lucerne area


I've been an active forum member and strive to create a positive working place wherever I am. My organisational and communicative skills are excellent. Yes, I'm over 50 but I have worked all of my life and would like to continue working for the next 14 years.


I'm asking EF for help because, despite my numerous applications, I seem to be hitting a wall. The spirit of EF has created miracles before. If you can help me in any way to find a job, I would be grateful.


Thank you for any support or consideration.


Best regards
Olygirl

Re: Longtime EF Member Looking for Clerical Work

Any industry specializations? I'll ask around - my current employer isn't large (or hiring), but I'll ask around in amongst my old colleagues in the MNCs.

Re: Longtime EF Member Looking for Clerical Work

Have you tried signing up with an agency? With your set of transferable skills you should be a fit reasonably easily in many fields.

Also, you could try the RAV - even if you don't apply/qualify for unemployment they can offer job searching resources and advice. They might even have some additional assistance for placing more mature job seekers.

Re: Longtime EF Member Looking for Clerical Work

Best of luck with the search. I hope something suitable and meaningful crops up soon for you.
Any chance of taking on (more) private English lessons in the meantime?
