In 2003, Networking for Jobs was launched as a pilot project in cooperation with a leading Swiss NGO. Two years later, the program was further developed and became operationally independent. Ever since, the services offered have been continuously optimized and tailored to the needs of the target group as well as the industry. Throughout this process, a unique network of relations with the industry could be built. Over 2000 people were able to start a successful career with the support of the competence center Networking for Jobs. Today, as a leading competence center, we facilitate the access to the Swiss labor market for highly qualified immigrants and Swiss repatriates and contribute to the mitigation of the shortage of specialists in the economy.
