Hi,

I am recent college graduate from India with 0 years of work experience, got job in a well reputed internet giant company from US, I planning to join their Zurich office, I want to know few things :
a) What are my chances of getting work permit for Zurich if I apply now?
b) When is the application for work permit for Zurich starts, which month specifically?

Thanks

Also, is there any change made last year that requires you to have work experience of 1-3 years for getting Zurich work permit?

Hello, my colleague. (probably, I don't know any other US giant Internet companies in Zurich)

Only the employer (company) can apply, not you. And due to the 3-year requirement, many of the new hires have to change to Munich office.

Re: Info on work permit for Non-EU work permit for college graduate

As hongshen said only your company can apply for you to be granted a permit. Have they said you can move to the Zurich office or is this just something you hope will happen in the future? Because it costs your company time and money to make the application so I very much doubt that they'll do it for a grad with no practical experience yet.

The criteria for employers to be able to hire non-EU nationals is laid out here:

and the procedure here:

This will also apply to internal company transfers.
