As an American, what do I need to work for a month or two here?

I am currently studying in Heerbrugg and my studies end in June. I am looking for a job for a few months before I return, but first I need to know what permits I would need, if there are any.

I have searched online and have not found anything.

Thanks.

Legally this would be incredibly difficult as the employer would need to show why you have a specific skill-set which means that a Swiss or EU national could not do the job. However, I am not sure if there is some way around this in academia for (say) PhD students who also teach - perhaps others will know.

It might help if you let us know what area you were thinking of working in.

PS. welome tot he forum.

Going as per your thread title, if you looking for a job for a month or two in Switzerland, the chances are very minimal.

First you need to look for an employer who will sponsor & file your work permit. Then employer will need to justify the authorities, why could not they hire a EU employee. The employer will not go through this pain for a 1-2 months job. In rare case, if employer agrees, it takes around 3-6 weeks before a L Permit can be granted. So, working option does look tough.

Cheers.

Exactly same as we need to work in the States, a WORK PERMIT, not easily obtainable
