Entry Level Jobs non-EU (english)

Hi there! I'm a Japanese citizen who's about to graduate university by September 2018. Just wondering if there is any possibility to find an entry-level job in English that can also provide visa sponsorship. The chances are probably slim to none but I just thought I should ask the forum either way. Although I have worked for companies here for digital marketing in the fashion industry I'm pretty open to other industries as well.

You can only get a job in your field of expertise (university degree) so other fields aren't open to you. And without knowing what you're studying here we can't give you any idea of whether it would be possible or not.

You do have this in your favour if you haven't managed to line up a job before you graduate.

This means it's slightly easier for employers to hire non-EU students graduating from Swiss universities than it normally would be. But you have to apply for the job seeker permit and will have to show you can support yourself financially while you job hunt. If you can't do that you won't get the permit.

Another path might be to get hired by the Japanese branch of a Swiss company, HODL for a few years and then try to get an intracompany transfer to Switzerland. Nestlé comes to mind, they are pretty big in Japan.
