Non-EU in Hospitality?

Hi!

My name is Jovel and I've recently moved to Zürich for my boyfriend who works here. I'm originally from Singapore and have experience in F&B franchise, FMCG and restaurant branding, marketing and communications in the Middle East and APAC - did this for the past 4~5 years in the Middle East. On top of this I have also worked with a couple of hospitality start-ups in Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand doing business development, country management in addition to launching new cities in the Middle East and APAC.

I haven't really seen many start-up / hospitality positions made available for non-German + non-EU speaking professionals (scoured the web already) and was wondering if such position are typically made available for non-EU + non-German speaking? Is my 'niche' enough to disqualify non-Swiss and non-EU? (sorry in advance!). I know you have to be HIGHLY qualified and count as a specialist - but what does this even mean?

Further info:
- Graduate from Swiss hotel school & held B-permit for 4 years
- Accredited marketeer from the Chartered Institute of Marketing in the UK
- Accounting and business foundation certificate from Harvard Business School
- Freelance food editor for Destinations of the World News, TripAdvisor, Singapore Tourism Board, Dubai Tourism
- Languages spoken: English, Mandarin Chinese, French

Welcome to the Forum. I'm going to quote Medea in case you haven't seen this before:

I think the fact you graduated from a Swiss school would help you stand out compared to other non-EUs, but I don't know if it would be enough. Good luck!

Re: Non-EU in Hospitality?

Your question is specialised. I think you would get more useful information from the alumni network of your alma mater, or from the job platform of the school. I am actually surprised at you asking the question here.

I'm not surprised. Anything a person searches for on a major search engine with the word "Switzerland" is likely to generate a hit on EF in one of the top few spots.

Another thought, OP - You say you moved here to be with your boyfriend. Is he a Swiss or EU citizen, by chance? If yes, is marriage something on the horizon?

Obviously you don't want to get married simply to get a permit. However, if it's something the two of you plan anyway, and he's EU or Swiss, then it would ease your path to a job by giving you a dependent permit with the same rights as his.
