The Career Filter is a regular segment on the Working Podcast. In it, we highlight three little-known career resources on the Web. Since it’s been a long time between podcasts – and might be even longer – I figured why not bring you a the 411 on a Web site I was recently turned on to: JustLanded.com.
If you’re thinking of working in another country they have all juice you’d even need. Let’s say for example you wanted to work in Switzerland – hey, why not! Here’s some of the useful info you’ll find on the site:
The job market:
For most foreigners, Switzerland appears to be a paradise for working conditions. Swiss employees enjoy some of the highest salaries in the world. Despite widespread job losses in Switzerland during the early 1990s recession, unemployment is still among the lowest in Europe. more
Since 1998, Switzerland has a dual priority system for the issuance of work permits: this means priority is given to workers from EU member states and a more restrictive admission policy is operated for non-EU citizens. more
Your job application acts as your “business card” for your job search as well as being your passport to a first contact with potential employers. Job applications and the selection process in Switzerland might look and work differently then what you’re used to at home.
You can also find out about qualifications, cost of living, social security, insurance, etc.
If you’ve had enough of America and want to press your career luck elsewhere – maybe Portugal, Kuwait or dozens of others – JustLanded.com is the place for you.
