If you come here you better prepare yourself and learn german,french or italian because it's hard to find a job if you don't speak any of the 3 (4) official languages. You probably wont even get an office job if you don't speak one of them fluently. (except in a english speaking company eventually).

I fear Andres is over stressing the point. The Swiss are quite insular and so would prefer a German (in Zurich) speaking candidate but if you are better than the other guy then they'll still take you. Most big Intl firms (including Swiss ones) have English speaking as a hiring criteria so its not normally a problem.
