How is the tech industry job market in Switzerland

Hello all,

My partner is moving to Switzerland soon and hoping to find a job in tech industry (software engineering). She has 2.5 years of industry experience. I have a few questions about finding a job here (Zürich) in tech.

- How good/bad is the tech industry job market here?
- Do companies here prefer local over foreign candidates (also I'm here on a B permit, so being my dependent I'm assuming that she would not need a B permit and she can work with my permit status, is that correct?)
- Also any general advices for someone looking for job in tech? 🙂

Apologies if this is not the correct sub-forum to ask this question.

Thanks!

No idea on the engineering business but your partner definitely needs her own permit. Is she from the EU?

No she is from India (and so am I, with a B permit)

Then you need to apply for family reunification. Check the forum, a lot of information has been given on this subject.
