Expat Spouse Career Program HireMeExpress – From Frustrated to Fantastic in 90 Days in Zurich, Switzerland

Before I tell you about the life-changing program for the Expat Spouse, “HireMeExpress,” let’s consider who this is for…

  • You are an Expat Spouse living in Zurich, Switzerland (or close by), and you feel you have lost your confidence because it is much harder to find a job than expected.
  • Right now, you are insecure about how you contribute financially to your partnership and despise your dependency.
  • You belong to a cultural minority in Switzerland, and you feel that your confidence has taken a hit. Going through cultural adjustment wasn’t easy, but even worse, you now feel like a financial burden to your partner. You want to work, be productive, and contribute to the world.
  • You might be trying to stay positive and not lose hope, but sometimes you feel like you are living in illusions because you’ve been looking for a job for over six months and haven’t even had an interview yet.

You are in the right place, and I will tell you exactly how HireMeExpress will give you the tools, inspiration, and unparalleled support you need to find a job or gain another source of income in Zurich, Switzerland.

“During my transition to Switzerland, I quickly learned that I needed more than just a really good resume to tackle the local job market. I participated in the HireMe! Program with Coach Angie Weinberger because of the action-driven approach. I invested in myself and my career in this new country and it was definitely worth it. The sessions and tasks made me aware of my strengths and chances. When I mapped out my network, for example, it was much bigger than I expected. Angie had great tips on how to approach and expand our network in a genuine and authentic way. The input and feedback I received from Angie was personal and focused. She and her team gave me the tools and self-esteem to land my first job in Switzerland!”

Frequently Asked Questions about our Program for the Expat Spouse HireMeExpress

Do I have to be in Switzerland to participate in HireMeExpress?

You don’t have to live in Switzerland before you can benefit from this program’s value. If you plan to move to Switzerland, an ideal time to start this program is six months before moving. However, having a work permit through your spouse’s employer would be best. Contact us if you are not sure about the permit types.

Can I participate in the program?

Anyone looking for a means of earning income is suitable for the program. However, it is geared towards those who feel they have a more challenging time finding a job in the host country because of a lack of network and visibility. Everyone has different challenges. We noticed that female expats and rainbow talent often have a more challenging time in countries like Switzerland. If you are unsure, you can always call us for a meeting.

Do you guarantee I will get a job during the Expat Spouse Career Program HireMeExpress Zurich?

We can guarantee that our method and process are proven. However, it would be best to commit to getting the most out of HireMeExpress.

Can my Partner and I participate in the program?

Usually, it’s better if your partner focuses on their role and if they let you do the work required. However, we can discuss your situation in a call.

What if I feel I’m not a good fit for the program after buying?

If you buy the program, go through modules 1 and 2, and feel that you are not a good fit, we will refund your course cost if you show me that you’ve done the required work.

Why is the course price higher than an average online course?

This is because it is a hybrid course (blended learning) in which you regularly have live individual coaching sessions and group coaching sessions. We offer the course at a market-level rate, and it’s the same price for companies and organizations wishing to support better their expat spouses who are moving to Zurich, Switzerland.

Do I need a work permit from the host country to participate in HireMeExpress?

Yes, it is highly recommended that you only join this course if you have a work permit for Switzerland. If you don’t have a work permit, we recommend individual coaching sessions and a consultation with an immigration specialist. We can connect you with them.

Do I need to speak German or Swiss German, or is English sufficient to find a job or an income in Zurich?

This is a role-specific question that I can only answer in the context of your role. However, many of our previous coaching clients do not speak German or Swiss German and are mainly fluent English speakers.

Which key success factors have previous participants highlighted?

They are accountable to a coach and a group and have concrete pointers to start their networking efforts. Another key success factor is the highly interactive work in the group and the strong personal commitment that we bring to every single client.

Are we still thinking about our Program for the Expat Spouse HireMeExpress?

You should give HireMeExpress a 14-day risk-free shot if motivated by the following.

  • You are worried you might not find a challenging and purposeful job in your host country.
  • You underestimated the challenge of working in a language not your mother tongue.
  • You might have thought it would be easier to get online work opportunities in this day and age.
  • You are looking for purpose and fulfillment.
  • You did not expect that cultural adjustment would hit you that hard, and putting on weight, eating more, and drinking more alcohol doesn’t make you more attractive at this point in your life.
  • You are convinced that once you have a clear day structure again, you can battle these signs of cultural adjustment and get back into shape.
  • You are motivated by the energy you will have once you have started your work routine again.

Most importantly, you are motivated by having a good life in the new country with your partner. Your relationship will be more harmonious, and you will feel you are building a life vision together again. That’s why you are motivated beyond measure to invest the next few months in getting fit for this job market and simultaneously learning the host country’s language.
