With an extensive experience in recruitment on the Swiss labor market, I help you write your application (CV and cover letter) and prepare for your job interview. My role:

Tu représentes vraiment la "croisée des chemins" et l'ouverture vers tous les possibles... C'est juste énorme. Un cadeau de la vie. Encore milles mercis pour TOUT.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé votre rapport d'orientation et nous y reconnaissons bien notre fils. Les résultats sont proches des tests qu'il a effectué au préalable mais votre étude est beaucoup plus pointue et surtout plus efficace. Il y a matière pour continuer le chemin. Ce qui est très impressionnant, c'est votre contact avec W. Il a tellement apprécié ses séances avec vous. Cette énergie et cette motivation que vous communiquez est vraiment magnifique.
J'ai encore dans la tête les émotions de notre dernière séance qui m'a passablement remuée. Mais je t'en suis hyper reconnaissante, car un déclic s'est produit en moi. "Bizarrement", je me sens plus libre. A chaque pas, je me sens de mieux en mieux, plus en confiance. Alors, merci pour ce "décrassage”.
My confirmed recruitment experience on the Swiss labor market has allowed me to understand how a recruiter is functioning. Less than 30 seconds is spent on a CV and I know what will retain his/her attention. I know quite well his/her business language and expectations to write a persuasive job application.
Writing a CV varies between 300.- CHF et 500.- CHF including taxes.

You can pay in cash, by bank transfer or by TWINT (or possibly by Paypal with additional fees)
There is not one way to do a good resume and there is no perfect CV. But there are tips that will allow you to stand out of the crowd. Likewise, there are essential features that you have to take into consideration if you want to have a chance of being selected.
Today, everything counts to make a difference amongst the other candidates. For an open position, there are on average 300 applications!! It is therefore obvious that only those who have made the effort to write an impeccable application, from A to Z, will have a chance to be selected. Anything that will help you differentiate from the crowd is therefore a clear advantage.
French and Italian being my mother tongues and with a Master in German and English Literature, I can translate job applications into French and English.
Too often, after a job interview, people feel frustrated for not having had the possibility to express their true value. On top of it, because of the strong competition, it is more and more difficult to be selected for a job interview. It is therefore essential to be well prepared for job interviews, in order not to be caught off guard on some key issues and to stay in control on the message you want to convey on yourself and on your experience.
Absolutely. You can send me your documents as well as the job you are applying for, and I will share with you my comments or suggest you the appropriate modifications to be done. If your application needs to be significantly rewritten, I will send you a quote.
