Or you may already be here as a trailing spouse. Either way, these tips will hopefully help you to navigate the Swiss job market. Our goal is for you to successfully apply for employment in your new home.
Depending on who you talk to, the opinion is that the job market has dried up. So your chances as a multilingual, talented future worker are quite good! But I want you to keep in mind that regardless, Swiss employers like bulky resumes with as much detail as possible. There is simply no way around gearing up for job hunting, even if your qualifications speak for themselves...

SWISSIFYING YOUR RESUME
You should know that a Swiss resume (or "CV") has very peculiar requirements compared to other parts of the world. As you will see, you are expected to include both professional and personal information.
Even a photograph is required! While you are probably on a shoe-string budget, it is really important to have a professional photograph taken somewhere in town. First impressions count, so it would be a shame to miss the chance to shine.
