Finding a job in Finance as a recent graduate

Hello everyone.

I'm new to this forum, but not new to Switzerland.

Indeed, I've been studying here Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich over the past two years.

Now I'm about to graduate and struggling to find any entry level position.

Here a bit info about myself:

I'm from Italy
24 years old
Fluent in English and German and Spanish ( and native Italian)

My biggest problem is that I have zero work experience, and sadly not by choice. I tried to find some internships or working student positions while studying in the master, but I was rejected all the time.

I keep reading from different sources that as long as you are Swiss or EU citizen and speak German, a Job is Zurich is guaranteed to you. But that's definitely not the case for me.

My dream companies in ZH are Credit Suisse, UBS and Swiss Re. I never applied there, because I dont have any chances there as I have been rejected by less prestigious firms (I even got rejected by a startup!).

Any advice on the job search for someone in my situation? Do you think it's easier to find a job outside of CH ( e.g. in UK or Ireland)?

Thank you in advance for your replies.
