A New Way to Find a Job in Switzerland

100000jobs.ch - You'll find your new job here!
 In an older post I wrote about the job market in Switzerland and gave some recommendation on finding a job in Switzerland. In a way, the situation in the Swiss job market has changed and at the same time hasn't changed since then.

Unemployment rates remain low

The Swiss economy might not be in an all-time high but it is rolling steadily. This keeps unemployment rates relatively low which in turn allows a lot of employees to earn their living and to invest their earnings (i.e. consuming and buying) which again stimulates the economy. Capitalism at its best, right?

Well, even in Switzerland there are people looking for a new job. Maybe they currently have a job they don't like, maybe they would like to advance their career and are looking for the next step on the career ladder, maybe they just lost their job and need to make a living or maybe they just recently graduated and are now ready to enter the job market.

People find jobs online - but where?

The internet remains the favorite medium for job search. A few people look for jobs directly on company websites but most people rely on job boards and job search engines because they offer more job ads at a click.

Up until recently, one big player dominated the online job market with smaller players like jobagent.ch only reaching certain segments of the job seeking population. However, there is now a new player stirring up the Swiss online job market: 100000jobs.ch.

As the name implies, there are over 100'000 job offers available on this website, including 2 for bloggers! This is more than double than what the market leader provides. 100000jobs.ch is definitely a good option for anyone looking for a job in Switzerland. It is easy to use even when you don't speak English as the navigation is almost self-explanatory.

What makes this page exceptional, is that it uses semantic search technology. This means, if you're looking for a job as 'salesman' it will show you all job ads for 'salesman' plus every ad with a synonymous job title such as 'sales person', 'sales professional' or 'sales consultant'. It will always display job ads in all languages available at the moment.

How to Look for Jobs on 100000jobs.ch

Just in case you struggle with using this job search engine, here's a short user guide for 100000jobs.ch.
  1. Go to 100000jobs.ch
  2. Choose your preferred language (German or French)
  3. Enter a job title (e.g. carpenter, manager, translator) where it says 'Jobtitel'
  4. Select in which part of Switzerland you want to work (where it says 'Kanton, Region')
  5. Click 'Jobs suchen'

You'll be redirected to the results page where you'll find all jobs that fit your search criteria. You'll see how many jobs in total there are for your search and you can then move on to take a look at individual job offers.

A Typical Swiss Birthday Party

My son and I recently attended a birthday party here in Cocachimba, Peru. It was the birthday of one of the kids in the village and since it's such a small place, almost everyone is invited. To be honest, I don't like going to children's birthday parties - or grown up's birthday parties - because there is usually too much noise and fuss and chaos. My husband usually takes it on himself to accompany our son to these birthdays but this time he was away so I had to step in.

If you've never been to a Peruvian birthday party, let me tell you one thing: it's loud and crowded! There is dancing and food and once in a while people are trying to say something above the deafening noise of the music. I guess, if you grew up with this it's probably normal and enjoyable but for me it was way too much noise. I could see all the children's ear go deaf in my minds eyes. Argh. Probably one of those cultural differences you'll have as a foreigner.

How to Spot a Swiss Person

As an expat one usually spots fellow expats right away. It's not only the language or the looks of people but rather the little peculiarities of life that seem so normal at home that give us away while abroad. Obviously, it's a cliche that all people from the same place (country, city, continent) behave in the same way and I am far from making that claim. However, growing up in a certain surrounding does rub off on people's behavior and some similarities can certainly be observed.

This is also true for Swiss people. According to the Swiss stereotype, we are a clean, punctual and strictly organized people. However, there are many exceptions like my Swiss friend who is always late or my brother whose room was a total mess while growing up. Yet, although they do not fit the description of a typical Swiss person, they still have some traits that give them away as Swiss. The same is probably true for myself - if I like it or not.
