The policy is that you'll only get a job if there's no Swiss or EU citizens who can do it. So - no it isn't easy.

Yes, you should check with recruiting companies. Also the website of big employers... surely you know this already? How do you expect otherwise to find work?

Re: IT/Developers opportunities

much depends on your skills and your passport..if you are non-eu and a java,.net,oracle etc developer than chances are low that an employer will offer you a job in the present IT market and even if he does, canton will issue you a permit and even if it does, federal will give you a final approval.

* My comment is based on experience
