why Switzerland?

It's just another west european country, no different from the nordics, the netherlands, germany, belgium or even austria.
But not part of the EU

Re: Tips on finding jobs in Switzerland as a non-EU citizen

I must say that the only thing you have to concentrate in swiss job hunt(being non eu) is on work permit

- if you have a B transferable work permit, then there are plenty of jobs for IT guys here(java, .net,pl1,testing etc)

- coming here on tourist visa will not help as getting a job is dependent on your work permission.....which no swiss company is willing to sponsor in present time..... exceptionally if u have some special skills(son of gadafi..hehehe..laughing filler in b/w serious talk :-)

best of luck

Of course - not only for Americans but for everyone who wants to live in any country. You want to know about the country. You said it was just another west European country. I was merely pointing out that it is not a member of the EU, not criticizing what you said.

A country's politics, laws, tax rates etc....are always important when thinking about relocating there especially with a family. There are differences in every country - I'm not sure you can just lump all the west European countries together. Thinking specifically of the Euro/CHF rate.

And why is everyone obsessed with Switzerland? It's economically stable, has high beautiful mountains and the skiing is awesome. Summers are warm and nice, if you compare to Sweden and Norway. Taxes are low, people are warm and happy. It's clean. Trains are on time. It's a bit bureaucratic, yes. It's expensive to live here, but not with a Swiss salary. Europe is around the corner. From Zürich you have like 40 mins to Germany, 1 hour to Austria, 2 hours to Alsace/France and 3-4 hours to Italy.
Ok, enough preaching to the choir - but few other countries can offer this.
Have they moved Switzerland out of Europe while I was gone?
