Make use of your right to a fair and professional job reference!

Welcome to – the Swiss site that helps you with your job reference.

You have received an interim or final job reference from your employer and are unsure whether it was really positive and in line with your performance? You suspect that negative codes have been used? Let us analyse your job reference now and you will receive a detailed report on your job reference within 2 working days.

Formal analysis

We check your job reference for general formal correctness. Does it meet the minimum legal requirements under Swiss law?

We check the content of your job reference very thoroughly for negative wording and hidden codes.

Suggestions for improvement

On request, we will prepare individual wording proposals, which you can pass on to your employer as a change request.

descriptionWhy should you check a job reference?

Job references have a high priority as a basis for every recruitment decision. The certainty of applying with a really good job reference allows you to appear even more confident in future application processes. Application procedures can be much more positive for you. A job reference analysis is therefore always worthwhile!

descriptionCritical formulations

Many interim and final job references contain critical wordings. They are a common means of communicating negative assessments - which are legally inadmissible. They are not recognisable to laypersons and often read particularly positively, e.g. "he made a positive contribution to the working atmosphere" for "he drank at work". In application processes such negative messages could be decoded by the recruitment managers which could have dramatic consequences for your application process.

descriptionAppearance and formal requirements

We check your job reference for completeness, whether it has a good appearance and meets the formal and legal minimum requirements in Switzerland.


Today, in larger companies job references are often created with the help of text modules or job reference software. We check whether there is still sufficient individuality to avoid interchangeability.

Florian S.

Top service and fast processing! Thanks to you, I really understood what was written between the lines in my job reference! 🤔 Cool idea with the staff, is very easy to understand. Especially the "translation" in text form helps a lot. Could react in time, especially the tips for reformulation were really helpful 😉 Thanks again and next time again with pleasure! Greeting Florian

About Us was founded with the aim of supporting Swiss employees in assessing and improving their employer’s job references. Through our professional analysis of interim and final job references, we want to contribute to avoiding or defusing conflicts with employers. It is our mission to ensure a fair and professional testimonial for every Swiss employee in order to improve your chances on the Swiss labour market.

Who we are was founded in February 2018 by Gordon Alexander Vahldiek, who has 14 years of experience with job references in various international companies. Before his professional career he studied economics and social sciences with focus on human resources management and labour law. During his career he has continuously dealt with the topic of job references from different perspectives both as an HR employee and as a manager. But also as an employee, he has been able to gain a lot of experience with job references. An intensive content-related and legal examination of this topic has made him an expert in this field. For his private environment, he was therefore a valued contact person long before the company was founded, if there was any uncertainty about an interim or final job reference. This gave rise to the idea of professionalising this assistance with job reference issues and making it available to every people in Switzerland.

Gründer und Geschäftsführer

Our team

Even before its foundation, the founder of had already built up a qualified network of HR experts, so that it was possible to fall back quickly on well-founded experts in the field of job references and labour law. This network of experts is made up of pronounced experts from the field and not lawyers. In other words, people from the HR department who deal with the topic of applications and job references on a daily basis and who are experienced and trained accordingly. We see this as an advantage over a purely legal examination, which often misses the professional reality. This professional network is consulted for the respective testimonial analyses and in the meantime a permanent and well-established team of testimonial examiners and employees is working for And if legal advice should nevertheless be necessary, the network of also has lawyers in the field of labour law who can be involved if necessary.
