Re: American Aeronautical Engineer looking for job in Switzerland

The aviation market is small and tight, many firms use agency contractors rather than permanent employees for new roles, and many require specific licences, and whilst they do take English speakers, they normally require a proficiency in German (in the German part of CH). There are many more already qualified and experienced aero engineers that are Swiss, or unemployed with a valid permit in place, than there are permanent vacancies. So a newly qualified engineer, with no practical experience, weak German, and non EU, sad to say it's not a very rosy picture for you.

Post qualification, gaining some type licences and practical experience to bolster your CV would increase your chances..... good luck.
