Possiblity of working while husband is on job search visa

Hi Everyone

I am back with my non stop immigration and job permit question again.

so here is my story, I am non EU with dependent B permit. I have MSC in Electrical engineering and have been working for the last 3 and half years and have a permanent work contract. My husbands work contract will end in few months and we will be seeking job search visa for him as he will be getting his PHD from ETH zurich.

My question is will I be allowed to continue to work when he gets this job search visa (if I am not mistaken it will be a 6month extension)?

My company is willing to apply a work permit for me but would not like to go through the EU hiring process. we agreed to use it as a last option since it will be easier to get a work permit for my husband if he can find a job because he is graduating from Swiss university.

thanks in advance for your help

Sorry, but I have no idea. I can only suggest you contact the Zurich migration office and ask them.

He should have up to 6 months to find a position, but I have read of some cantons only issuing a permit for 3 months with presumably another 3 month extension if it's needed.
