Job opportunities after MS at ETH

Dear All,

I am a non EU citizen. I have been accepted at ETH for Masters in Mechanical Engineering.
I am aware of the tight labor laws of switzerland, but is there any chance of getting a job after MS studies from ETH.
Also does the ETH tag help in finding jobs, if not switzerland, other parts of EU?.
I am worried because hardly anyone knows about ETH in my country and the this makes me feel I will not be recognized by International Employers

Hoping to hear your opinions

Hardly anyone knows abouth ETH in your country? That's pretty sad. In terms of academics and reputation, if your country doesn't know the ETH they have some serious problems. In most academic/industry circles the ETH is the only European (outside Great Britain) institute that is considered and respected.

If your employer doesn't know ETH, and doesn't attempt to google the school, I probably wouldn't work for them.

Re: Job opportunities after MS at ETH

Hi
I am sorry I have offended anyone. My observation was largely limited to general public in my country. But my primary doubt was, if ETH and its degree are so much valued (which I believe, and you too), then would it be good enough to get a job in Swiss/EU or the USA after graduation. I am eager to know about this because after completion of my studies I need to work for some time to cover my educational debts.
