One Last Shot

I'm going to give my plan to work in Switzerland one last shot. This time I'm going to be as broad and simple as possible. I am an American looking to one day work in Switzerland and the easiest way is to get a job offer from a Swiss company. I can speak excellent German and am working on my Swiss German.

Here are my broader options: aviation, economics, law, and marketing/sales.

Given those options, I need to know what a career is that will be in demand in Switzerland and that I could get a job in. I'm fine working as an American marketing specialist for a Swiss company, or a Swiss (the airline) representative in the us, just so long as the job has a Swiss base and can get me my b permit.

Switzerland is the only place I can see myself living long term, and I need to know I could get a b permit. So far my top careers are off the table.

There are lots of financial services companies in Switzerland. Check out the websites. Or come here on vacation, fall in love and take it from there!

Re: One Last Shot

If you really are thinking long term - broaden your search. If you live/work anywhere in Europe long enough to gain EU citizenship, all your Swiss visa-chasing becomes a piece of cake. You still have a job to look for, but any company can take you on without proving they have exhausted all CH/EU hiring possibilities first (which would be your situation now, as a non-EU national.)

I imagine it's also (somewhat) easier to look for a job here even without EU citizenship if you are based on the same continent, plus or minus one time zone instead of six, can easily come for interviews etc.

(Out of curiosity, why is Switzerland "the only place" for you?)
