Chances of a job in Switzerland after internship as non-EU

I am currently halfway on my 6-month internship in Zürich. I came from a non-EU country and I am not expecting that my employer will be hiring me after the internship but I think I am doing well and doing my best. I am under the Young Professional Trainee program, an agreement between Switzerland and a few selected non-EU countries. According to the agreement, I will not be allowed to work in Switzerland after completing the contract. I already expect that I will be returning home after the internship.

Giving these circumstances, how is the chance (if there is any) that I will be able to find a job in Switzerland legally after the internship? Thanks for your responses.

Re: Chances of a job in Switzerland after internship as non-EU

Welcome to the Forum. I think you already know the answer but here you go anyway.

1. You find an employer. The employer applies for a permit. The authorities determine whether it is B or L (or no permit at all). This depends on how much of the quota for non-EU is used up, your qualifications, the length of your contract, the salary offered, etc. This is not a free process for the employer, so they will want to be pretty confident you're worth it.

2. The employer has to prove there is no Swiss or EU here who can do the job. Often that means you need a degree and a fair amount of experience. I'm not sure a 6-month internship is going to set you apart as uniquely qualified unless it's a niche industry.

The non-EU hiring criteria can be found here:

Re: Chances of a job in Switzerland after internship as non-EU

Thanks for your response! The company that I am interning has a very specific niche and related to IT. Although, I just wonder if there are some relevant opportunities in Switzerland. Maybe someone out there might have been successful to find some opportunities that have landed them full time. I want to understand if there are some other processes/conditions.
