How is the employment market for architects in CH?

Hi there, first post! Anyway, I'm an American one year out of graduation with a bachelors in architecture, and currently working. I'm learning German and looking to work in Europe someday, and so in that regard I'll be starting a Vorbereitungskurs for language at BTU Cottbus and follow up with a masters study (or will transfer to ETH Zürich, with any luck). But for what comes after...

So, the actual question: How is the employment market for architects or recent architecture graduates in Switzerland, specifically the German speaking Cantons?

And as a bonus, if a comparison could be made with the job markets in the US and neighboring Germany, just for better context. I understand the German market is oversaturated with applicants, possibly similar to the Swiss. Many thanks!

Citizens of the USA, as a non-EU/ EFTA country, do not have any right to work and live in Switzerland. Would suggest you review this overview regarding third-country nationals working in Switzerland:

For information on the employment market for architects in Switzerland and Germany, search on "architekt arbeitsmarkt schweiz" and "architekt arbeitsmarkt deutschland". This is an overview of the employment market in Switzerland:

That's depressing. Then again I should have probably thought to check the visa requirements.. Thanks for the replies.
