Re: Guidance needed-I am Indian Experienced IT professional

We just had someone on my floor come through on a short-term IT assignment (one month) through a consultancy firm based in India. Perhaps if you go this route, you could make the necessary contacts to secure a longer-term job in Switzerland. I know that is what this young gentleman was doing and I hope something works out for the both of you.

In many ways, Switzerland's quality of life is better than London (i.e. shorter commute times, less crime, speedy access to healthcare etc.), but this comes at a price. Our major cities are listed as the most expensive in the world in which to live.

so after few research I came to know that Switzerland is best country for pay
Your research is wrong. It has always been the US.

Even considering tax differences the top places in the US still do pay better.

My questions : As a Non EU citizen , will i get job in Switzerland ?
Based on what little you wrote about yourself so far, I'm going to say no.

Quote:
Do I have to learn any Swiss language for getting Job there ? if so what language is best for getting job?
Skills matter a lot more than language if you want to relocate as a skilled worker. And noone's gonna hire you for your language skills as a non native speaker

University degree wouldn't hurt for a start and is the first thing that swiss immigration bureaucrats will ask for

I know that. I still don't get the grounds for them being granted permits (presumably B or L) when there are plenty of Swiss/EU workers with those skills (in my sector).
If you dig into the official statistics, there isn't "plenty" of "IT people" available in Switzerland as you say:

Switzerland was a bad career choice, and not that much of a terrible time to have, also I certainly donīt hate the place. However I do tend to see things as they are in living-technicolour-red-in-tooth-and-nail-gory reality without the advantage of your rose tinted filter and I certainly donīt believe that a persons worth should be linked to the size of his bank account.
I donīt think that I am too far off the mark if I were to say that you have never experienced just how cold and nasty and how much of a daunting place CH can be as a foreigner without the comfy cushion of an expatīs contract, I could be wrong though.

Thing is you donīt have to scratch the glossy surface deep to get to the darker parts, but I suppose this is a truism you can apply to any money orientated society and not just in CH.
Rose tinted? I am a realist, I don't sugar coat anything. Switzerland is as close to a utopia as I believe it is possible to get in this rapidly declining world. Living standards are insanely high, violent crime is insanely low, education is consistently high, the government is sensible and freedom, liberty and privacy are heavily emphasised. Like ANY place it has it's dark underbelly but when weighed up that is pretty much insignificant when compared to any other country I can think of.

Ignoring 3wishes meaningless fluffy sentiments that for some reason she feels the need to inform me about as though I am even remotely interested, you are like a bad smell that just won't go away. You don't live here since a long while yet persist in telling us at great length all about your life and how terrible this place was, and your initial reply to this thread of "sorry, next to impossible" is a prime example of why you just shouldn't be posting here. You are an overwhelmingly negative influence on this forum.

It is possible and plenty of Indian contractors do come here for IT if they have the right skills. The OP certainly has a chance if he does his research, has the right skills and applies himself in the right directions.

That's lovely, but that's IT across all sectors, not just mine, and it's just Switzerland, not Switzerland and the EU.

By the way, this is not a Swiss expat only forum and it doesnīt stop at the border, I can access it from all over the globe.
Also if you donīt like having me here you can either put me on ignore or beg the admins to chuck me out.

I have no influence over whether you stay here and post your depressive and negative doom and gloom or not, but I will certainly give my opinion when you do. If you don't like that then tough tooties.
