Job for medical technologist/diagnostic medical sales
 
I am a licensed medical technologist currently working as Diagnostic account executive in Roche Philippines. Roche is one of the major medical diagnostic company in the world with headquarters at switzerland. I am currently looking for a job in switzerland as a sales representative of medical devices or as a medical technician in a laboratory or hospital. My boyfriend is in switzerland but he is a non-eu resident. I came to know that i have to find an employer first in switzerland before i can apply for a working permit. Do you have any suggestions where i can find an employer in my field of work?

thank you

Without a permit it's unlikely but perhaps they look for unique specialist like you which is very niche market. Only one way to find out. ;)

Yes, you do because only a Swiss employer can apply for a permit for you. The non-EU hiring criteria is here:

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

Basically they have to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national who could do the job so it really depends on how specialised your skills/experience are.

Have you checked Roche's website to see if they have any positions you could apply for here - or maybe get an inter-company transfer?

The main problem may be your lack of a Swiss language (German, French, Italian). Without one of those work as either a sales rep or in a lab in a hospital will probably not be possible.
