Saw this today "From zero to Hero"

https://www.20min.ch/video/ich-arbei...s-884424010132

She started at McDonalds, finished her studies & today she runs 5 restaurants & 2 hotels.

Good luck & follow your dreams!
Running 5 restaurants and 2 hotels sounds like a punishment, not making it
I thought the goal was working less hours while keeping or increasing income.

Re: work in switzerland without experience

@susie-q
Yes EU citizens can come and live in CH whenever, and they'll get permit, however, only if they can provide a proof they can sustain themselves and they explicitly don't pursue gainful employment, eg if they're rich, came to retirement here (for that you need to be older than 55 I think) and so on.

If EU citizen wants to work in CH, then limits that Medea explained apply.

Re: work in switzerland without experience

Just asking for a friend, is your daughter working for the English schools that specialize in Swiss students ?

Swiss move from one part of Switzerland to another with no language skills (BTDT), and even with no work skills.

When my daughter moved from Ticino to Bern, her language and work skills were useless.

Ironically, the Swiss German that she learnt in Bern and Aargau were NOT useless when she moved to Australia.

Ever tried to compete with those workers?

When I was studying and fresh out of bachelor I was curious and worked at so-called low-skill jobs. It was hard to compete with other people with stronger work ethic or 3 children, thus I under performed. Sometimes I quit, sometimes I got fired, but I failed at most of them ,so returned happily to thinking jobs. Some low-paid jobs require true technical skill and even bravery, others require the patience of a saint which I don't have. Patience is damned hard thing to be good at.
It is a learned competence and trainable. By ie. working with young people. Making tiny chocolate pralines. Knitting. Oil painting. Being an EF mod. Learning a violin or a banjo. Lego building. Learning a difficult language.

OP - there is a Brazilian community in Geneve http://raizes.ch/# I don't think it's easy these days to immigrate and look for simple jobs. Lots of people lost their jobs here because of the pandemics. Good luck and courage, as we say here.

Pet food packing factories are always looking for staff.
I have heard it is a chumocracy, but diligent workers can win a lot.
