Re: That kind of jobs no one wants to do...

a non-eu person married to an eu person (already working in Switzerland) does have the right to work in Switzerland, regardless of other factors, correct?

It is difficult, although I hardly believe it is impossible. In the end all they have to do is to say the immigration office that they could not find anyone else, that's it, I do not see it complicate.
No, they have to prove that they've tried and failed, and convince the authorities that they could not find a Swiss resident to do the job. It's not enough to just make the claim.

Which is why it's generally possible for specialised, skilled, professions, where it's often difficult to resruit anyway, but almost impossible for unskilled labour.

As for ski resort work - well of course most of that will not be unskilled, but those jobs that genuinely are tend to be done via agencies, who arrange the whole package including travel and accommodation. At the moment a high proportion of such jobs are filled by Portuguese citizens, as they can't find work at home, and after that there are still several other EU member states with high unemployment/low payscales, so the chances for non-EU folk really are very small.

Interesting question..., I think yes..., because in such case it enters automatically in the people to look first, so the ones already in the job market.

Good for you, but even if the employer does decide to hire you the authorites will ask him for prove he looked in CH/EU before making his REQUEST to secure a permit for you, but i'm sure you know best

Careful with those spas. Most are legit and wonderful but there are some that cater to men's needs. I'm thinking of one in Küssnacht am Rigi....

Re: That kind of jobs no one wants to do...

Maybe McDonald`s? It`s probably not a dream job, but it is a bigger company and maybe can get you atleast a permit...

You say what now

I think my comprehension of the English language is above average and still I don't understand what you're trying to say? Are you sure you're fluent in English

Please clarify.

PS In my younger days, living and working for a brief period in Paris, most CV's we got usually said "English spoken/written well above average" and in some cases even stating to be fluent. In 95% of the cases this was far from the truth... Now, I'm not saying that you (or your "friend") are any good in the lingo but be honest about it because it's a waste of time interviewing people who do not tell the truth about obvious things on their CV
