Taking a part time job while searching for a career?


I am a recent graduate in Mechanical Engineering and plan to move to Switzerland. I am a Swiss citizen but have lived most of my life in the US. I have tried to search for a job in CH from the US but I am having a difficult time. I will be going to CH for Christmas to visit family and am planning on staying there to search for an engineering job. I am worried about finances though and am considering searching for a part time job maybe just at a store or restaurant in the mean time.

Will employers see this as a negative on my resume if I come from an engineering internship into a part time position? I worry that it will seem like I am not qualified to find any engineering jobs.

Also, if I find an engineering job, how much notice would I have to give notice at a store job? I know in the US two weeks is sufficient time but I am not sure what the proper practices in Switzerland are.
