Re: Searching for job while on visit/tourist visa

View Post
I hope you all are doing well.
I am seeking for your advice regarding my career situation and I hope you can help me out;

I am currently living in the UAE and working in bank as an IT Systems Engineer, I have more than 5 years experience in my field and I carry a good number of international certificates in the IT. I am originally from Egypt.
The thing is I have been thinking seriously to move to Switzerland and I am so excited about the idea. However I am not very sure how much the chances to find a good job there.
I have searched in many recruiting websites and I found the IT jobs posting there I would be very qualified for this kind of jobs.

I was thinking to take a leave for a month and come for a visit or tourist visa and search for a job, but not very sure if that would be enough to hunt a nice job!

I would really appreciate your kind advice.

Thank you very much

If you are not from EU there is very little chance of you getting a job. Only if the role can't be filled by a Swiss or an EU, would the role go to someone outside. If you were working for a company and they transferred you to Switzerland is another way.
