Fresh on this forum, soon moving to Switzerland

Hello everyone,

My name is Nippon Alam I have just joined this forum this morning.
I am 22years old, born in Tokyo off Bangladeshi parents (hence my parents named me Nippon which literally means japan/land of rising sun) Grew up from age 1 to 14 in Milan,Italy then went to study in Sheffield,England for last 8years and recently (june) moved back from Sheffield, England to Milan,Italy. And seeking to move out again to a new place and undertake another challenge.Currently I speak 6 languages (English,Italian,Spanish,Hindi,Urdu and Bengali) and I want to learn German next to add to my list of known languages but also career related too.

My ambitions and interest are travelling all over the world, learn foreign languages and I have an extreme passion for aviation.I am currently in the project of becoming a pilot. For those who isn't familiar with this career requirements let me simply put it this way...apart from having a perfect Medical condition including near perfect eye sight and go trough very vigorous training with extensive test in physics and maths it is also required for the candidate to pay 70-100k (euros) for the course fee.

Now I am only 22 and don't have a sugar daddy unfortunately that's where the problems is, and my plan of coming to Switzerland came to me to learn german for 1-2year and then apply for Swiss air or lufthansa cadet scheme for which I need fluent English and German along with all other requirements.
If I am not successful as 1000s of applications each year Applys and only around 20 places are available every year.
ThenI will have to self sponsor my training, meaning I hope to save money during my stay in Switzerland and Learning German, if I get into cadet program awesome, if not let's hope when I get rejected I have enough money to pay for the course myself.

I have Italian citizenship and therefore I can come to Switzerland even today if I wanted to but to work legally I need to get a B permit I assume and that is only matter of formality as I have been told from swiss consulate in Milan that I should go to Switzerland look for jobs do interviews and when I get a job come to them show them my new employee details and apply for a B permit and it will only be formality as I am Italian paper holder.

I am new to this forum so It will take me some time to search the forum for jobs but if anyone meantime has info for me I will be glad to receive them.
I am interested in English speaking jobs such as English Call Center in Switzerland or any jobs that requires English language or even other 5 languages that I speak.

I completed A levels in England and due to extreme cost of tuition fee for uni on top I need like 70k for pilot training I decided not to pursue a degree and simply work and save up for my pilot training course fee instead.
Therefore due to my lack of degree and German/French language I guess there ain't many jobs for me in Switzerland.
Hence I am willing to do any job really even teach kids English or even do cleaning I don't mind really is all for a good cause (my pilot training fund )
or anything else that people can suggest me that don't require a degree.

I am only 22 but have been working from school days and I have many years of experience in customer service such as retail also plenty experience in restaurant field such as waiter. However due to my lack of languages spoken in Switzerland I guess I will be no use as a waiter even if I have all the experience.
If you have any info on companies or Job roles that do not require a degree and needs English or other language speakers please kindly inform me or guide me to the resources.

Lastly I am looking for job right now to make my move to Switzerland but I am also keen on networking and hearing from all of you interesting people and once moved I will be happy to meet all of you and do activities and social gatherings.

Thank you in advance.Ciao
