Can EURES Switzerland help me find a job in the EU/EFTA?
EURES Switzerland does not place people in jobs itself. The EURES portal contains job advertisements published in all the EU/EFTA member states.

There are EURES advisers in all EU/EFTA member states, who can provide you with information tailored to your requirements. The EURES advisers in your destination country can provide useful information on putting together an application dossier, so that it is in line with the conventions in the local labour market. You can find the relevant contact information here.

The EURES advisers report to the public labour market authorities. They are your first point of contact for all questions relating to the European labour market and professional mobility. In addition, EURES advisers in Switzerland specialise in providing information on individual EU countries and can therefore offer very targeted information.

Can EURES Switzerland help me find an internship in the EU/EFTA?
EURES Switzerland does not place candidates in internships itself. On the EURES portal you can find internships published in all EU/EFTA member states by entering the keyword ‘internship’ under ‘Find a job in Europe’.

Eurodesk offers free support and assistance with finding an internship in Europe.
