How hard is it to get a job with limited work experience

Hi, everyone,
I applied to Business School Lausanne MBA program for next Fall. If I get it I have to make a choice, and my choice depends on this question.

I am graduating May of 2007, with Finance and Logistics degrees from United States public University.
Originally I am from Azerbaijan (former soviet union country).

Education is kind of expensive, and if I come I will have to take out some loans. I am just not sure how hard it is going to be for me to get employment in business field after I graduate from BSL with an MBA, in Switzerland? (I will be 23) What are the chances of getting a starting job with decent salary if someone is straight from studies without too much experience?
P.S. I have couple of summer internships with British Petroleum Logistics Department, in Azerbaijan.

As long as your work permit situation is ok, I would have to say that it is not impossible, but it will not be easy.

One thing you can do is to try and get on the graduate programs of some of the large banks and financial management companies, places are hard to come by and the selection process is quite competitive.

Thanks Zenistar.
What do you exactly mean by work permit situation? I will be studying already when I will be applying to jobs in Switzerland. Does that mean that I will have a work permit? (i thought part-time work is allowed for students)
Also, I think my only option is BSL for now. It is kind of hard to make the choice of leaving the US for me, because what if I do not get any job in Switzerland after graduation from MBA? It will be tough to come back to US.
I guess the main question is: how hard the process is compared to US jobs and H visa procedure (work permit for United States)?

Thanks for help, appreciate it.
