Might this be you?
You moved to Switzerland because your partner got a too-good-to-say-no-to job offer.
You figured Switzerland is a great country to live in, and that you'll find another job. After all, you never had a problem getting hired in the past.
Fast forward to your current reality:
You receive REJECTIONS instead of call backs. Most often, NO REPLIES at all.
You feel STUCK. You're not sure WHICH WAY to go.
You tried getting advice on what to do, but applying it makes you feel FAKE & UNCOMFORTABLE.
You have CRIED at least once. You start to feel that you're NOT GOOD ENOUGH for Swiss standards and that maybe you should LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Being asked "How is the job search going?" gives you a SICK FEELING IN THE PIT OF YOUR STOMACH.
If this is you, you're in the right place.
From panic to zero concerns
2016. I had moved to Switzerland to live with my partner. At the time, we'd been in a long distance relationship for 6 years.
The happiness of not waiting for weeks or even months to see each other anymore quickly gave way to panic. I had received an L residence permit and was scared I’d be kicked out of the country if I don’t find a job in 6 months.
During the next two years, I went from being desperate to take any job, no matter how relevant to my qualifications, from being rejected and ignored (and yes, a lot of crying sessions)…
… to giving up on the job search and pursuing my passion projects, which led me to…
… finding what I thought would be my dream job, first as a freelancer working with startups, then as a contractor for Google…
… to feeling the lowest I’ve felt since moving.
I’d sacrificed my real self in the process of finding my professional place in Switzerland. My life was out of balance.
I decided to quit, effectively choosing to be unemployed in Switzerland again, and looking like a crazy person in the process.
And then something very interesting happened… in stark contrast to the previous years that I was unemployed in Switzerland, I realised that I had zero concerns that I’d be aimless again.
Because after I tried and tested so many strategies and tactics, this time I knew what I had to do to succeed.
How would you like to go from feeling that you're not good enough to be given a chance to work in Switzerland to...
Seeing how the move is UNLOCKING NEW & BETTER OPPORTUNITIES?
Having the KNOWLEDGE, RESOURCES and TOOLS to find and persuade employers at your fingertips, in ways that feel AUTHENTIC to you?
FALLING IN LOVE with your career and with yourself, so that for the rest of your life you'll only go for what you WANT & DESERVE – and never again consider lowering your standards?
Have CONFIDENCE in your professional value & CLEARLY COMMUNICATE it to anyone? (Yes, even when you're unemployed.)
