The competence center Networking for Jobs is important and necessary, because it closes the gap between other opportunities in the Zurich area. It’s good that they are there!

Testimonial Swisscom, EN

Swisscom supports Networking for Jobs within the scope of Corporate Volunteering. For one thing, we offer workshops in which we give the candidates concrete advice for the application process. For another, we support the candidates through 1-to-1 mentorings in which we make our experiences and our network available – with the aim of providing valuable support to program participants.

In my opinion, Networking for Jobs makes a valuable contribution to a successful coexistence in our society. Thanks to the network provided by the Kompetenzzentrum, those who want to gain a foothold in Switzerland get access to jobs that match their skill set. As mentor I am pleased to exchange views with interesting people and to celebrate joint successes.
