job4U2 facilitates the partners of international employees to adjust successfully to a new location and enable them to gain access to local professional activity.
The objective is that by the end of the module the spouse has adopted a “ I decided to come” rather than a “ I agreed to come” mindset and possesses a better understanding of what living and developing a career in Switzerland will be like.
4U2 CAREER ORIENTATION COACHING
The objective is to use the relocation and its associated changes as an opportunity to orientate the career in a direction more in line with the new identity of the spouse and/or with the possibilities and constraints related to the new environment.
4U2 PROFESSIONAL PROJECT DEPLOYMENT
The objective is that by the end of the module the spouse has either found a job or is able to continue the job search on his/her own and is prepared for all the individual steps encompassed by the recruitment process.
4U2 START UP A BUSINESS
The objective is that by the end of the module the spouse has acquired the knowledge required to establish the company in Switzerland and has finalized a detailed action plan for the first year. *
*The Career orientation module can also be adapted to the own business project to help identify ideas and possibilities.
4U2 WELCOME & ADJUSTMENT
The objective is that by the end of the module the spouse has started the adjustment process of living in Switzerland, has made social connections and can project a positive future and conceive of exiting opportunities in the new home country.
- Newly relocated spouses have the basic need to meet and exchange with people so we value face-to-face workshops rather than skype or virtual meetings.
- To avoid isolation and to give the spouse a good reason to get outside the house, the workshops are organized in cozy and quiet places such as coffee shops or restaurants, in their direct local environment.
- We believe that being involved in a job search not only helps reach the objective but is also an enjoyable experience, supporting cultural adjustment, social networking and well-being in the new location: the job4U2 consultants are personable and passionate about people, always available to listen and support the spouse even when dealing with non-career related issues.
