Swiss citizen: do they have to give me an interview?

Hello!
Another interview thread, but I've done a search through EF and cannot find an answer. Apologies in advance if it's out there somewhere.

I am applying for a job at a university in Zuerich. I am a Swiss citizen living abroad. I have been abroad most of my adult life.

Assuming I meet all the requirements of the job, is the university required to give me an interview because I am a Swiss citizen? I read on another thread that Swiss companies/organizations must hire a Swiss over a non-Swiss all other things being equal. Is this correct?

Thank you.
J

For Swiss, read Swiss/EU, but otherwise, yes.

Doesn't necessarily mean you'll make the interview if there's a load of other Swiss/EU applicants (or if you don't meet their requirements).

No. No one is required to give you an interview just because you are a Swiss citizen.

Swiss companies do not have to hire Swiss citizens over non-EU, even "all things being equal". What the requirement you are talking about is if a company wants to apply for a NEW permit for a non-EU person then they must show they've looked and looked, but that no Swiss/EU/non-EU currently holding a permit, is available for the job.

Great - thanks so much. That answers my question!

I did think it a bit odd when I read that in a previous thread, so I wanted to clarify.
