Geneva, Switzerland – If your teens are staying in Geneva during the summer holidays then the prospect of a seasonal job may be of interest.
Every year the city and the canton of Geneva offer summer jobs that include up to 350 activities. All jobs are offered for a maximum of three weeks beginning on or after 20 June and ending 26 August.
Applicants must meet three requirements to qualify:

Those who meet all three requirements are automatically entered into a lottery that takes place before a notary to guarantee that all applications have a fair shot to be picked.
Registrations began 17 February and run through 7 March at midnight.
