Re: American Aeronautical Engineer looking for job in Switzerland

Close your eyes then me.anon because here it comes.

Welcome to the forum ericwintjen.

As a newly graduated student with no experience - nil. There will be plenty of Swiss/EU national who have the same background and they're ahead of you in the jobs queue.

As an American abroad you face problems getting a bank account here or anywhere else, will need to file US tax returns/FBAR forms and could owe the US tax on top of your local taxes. That's the short version. For more info google "FATCA" or search the forum here - there's more than enough info on this to make any good old American guy/gal weep.
