Drink & Talk in Switzerland
Drink & Talk in Switzerland
Romanian speakers who live, study and work in Switzerland and who want and who find the time to engage in networking, meet monthly for a couple of hours to share a drink.
Launched in Zurich in September 2012, the informal afterwork meeting series of the ones willing to meet other Romanians to expand their professional network and their friend cirle brought together in the first 15 months over 3000 participants, that debated different topics: work and study field, how they learned German, integration issues, what they can do for Romania.
The participation at these meetings is free of charge, each participant pays for his drink.
The RSPV is due to 6 p.m. on the Friday before the meeting, by filling out the questionnaire.
We appreciate the effort for filling out this questionnaire. This way you can also stay informed about the upcoming meetings and their topics and we can adapt the meeting to the needs and desires of the participants.
Drink & Talk in Zürich
MentNet- Mentoring Network for Romanian Professionals in Zurich was launched in September 2013 at the Drink & Talk meeting in Zurich. This program intended to establish and consolidate groups based on shared professional interests and meant to develop individual networks and to support, consolidate and mentor the ones that are searching for a work place in the branch: if they are newly arrived, if they want to restart their professional life or if they reached a point in their career where they need a change.
Projects such as The Parenting Club (De vorbă despre Parenting) became reality through the contacts established at these meetings.
In the first two years, the meetings had an ice breaker topic. Starting with 2015, successful Romanians in Switzerland, who can share from their experience in fields such as HR, financial analysis, entrepreneurship, education, psychology and counseling, attended the meeting as special guests.
From September 2016, during the meeting a Job Fair takes place.
