What to do after graduation
 
I am currently a 4th year student in Scotland at a university and will be graduating next year.
Maybe someone could share their wisdom, experience, and tell me what chances do I have in today`s job market in Switzerland with a Mathematics and Statistics degree (expecting a first class degree diploma)?
I did some internships during my studies: three months as an Economist and four months as a financial analyst.
I was thinking of doing a PhD or finding a job here in UK and learning German at the same time.

Should I start applying for jobs/internships/volunteer work in 2015 summer in Switzerland?

Not really sure what to do.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

There are some Swiss companies that do take grads on, but my advice would be to get a couple of years experience in the UK in the field you want to work in and then make the switch. That work experience will prove valuable when you do want to move and you'll be more employable that way. German helps a lot but isn't a must. Good luck!

Travel, plenty of time to work in your life.

OP, don't do PhD, and don't apply the Big Four as well :p
Been there and done that. I'd vote for travelling :D
