Re: Vitamin B: Is it that compulsory to have it in CH?

What do you think Vitamin B is? I suspect you are using the wrong word...
It is used correctly. Vitamin B helps you to find job openings earlier than advertised (also applies to apartments). You can get a job that you have no opportunity to apply for. Otherwise I doubt it will help you much in securing a job in a big company as a nobody fresh from school. "Vitamin A" as in perfect straight A grades is more important. But those guys most often know some other guys and so on...

Has anyone here with no experience and straight out of university ever had a job or an internship here without a referral within the company
A friend of mine did. But during the interview he learned that the position had to be filled twice. Immediately called a fellow graduate that he should apply as well, pointed out what was need in the motivation letter. The position was an expat stint in South Korea were the second student had an love interest. They are now married with children.
