Mostly it is a kind of work permit your friend need to have to work in swiss.

Work permit will be processed by employer.

Banks like credit suisse, UBS having there preferred vendor like Cognizant,TCS,wipro etc . these company are processing WP based on the requirement and getting people from india. Mostly from Pune and bangalore.

Be sure he/she knows the name of the country - it makes that person sound a little more impressive during interviews.

Just for your understanding, Swiss = Indian, the nation is called Switzerland.

Sorry you are right. .I wrote it wrong..was just some kind of "slang"..

Thanks for your help so far..

I guess it's not that easy here for people from India getting a job but still possible as I meet many every day on my way to work. In case you know any openings or any other info, would be great if you can let me know..

Thanks

I am sure Swiss employs ground staff in India. If your friend apploied there he could work in Swiss without having to relocate to another country or bother with a work permit for Switzerland.

Why don't you ask all the Indian people you meet on your way to work rather than us? Surely they would know...

Re: Indians in Swiss - how did you find a job here? sent here or applied for a job?

90% of the indians get a job here by a work permit sponsored by the Indian companies and they come here on deputation. after that some dare to change jobs where the new employers will process new work permits for them. somebody getting hired directly from India to work in Swiss is a bit rare as in such cases the chances of work permit approval are less. this is based on my experience.

I had few friends from Romania, Croatia and middle eastern countries who said Swiss instead of Switzerland. So i think 'Swiss = Indian' reference is a bit too much.

Re: Indians in Swiss - how did you find a job here? sent here or applied for a job?

Of course India in German is Indien. I just look at Swiss as an anglicised (indified?) spelling of Suisse.

The reason that there are so many Indian workers in the multinationals is that the CIOs decided (or were told) to outsource to the likes of TCS, Cognizent etc. in the naive belief that this would be cheaper. Bitter experience has taught a few that the cheapest way to outsource is actually to pay the retainer to the service provider, but continue to do the work yourself. Still, it reduces the headcount, so that's got to be good, hasn't it.
