If you don't succeed in both your professional and lovelife this is why. Self confidence is what will move your life forward. If I can smell it online, employers and your future non slutty husband will as well.

Re: A Hong Kong-based Asian guy wants to pursue a new life in Switzerland

A genuine Hong Kong guy (both born and raised in Hong Kong) here working in Basel as a chemist since last November, with permanent contract and B permit.

I really wish OP post is for entertaining only and I really get upset by the recent demonstration in Hong Kong and some naive Hong Konger because this greatly hurts the reputation of Hong Kong. Indeed, it took just about 100 years for Hong Kong to turn into a world renowned financial city from just a small village, thanks to hard-working and intelligent Hong Kongers, but now it is falling. So sad.

Back to OP, it is that you must have unique skills that the employers in Switzerland cannot find in the EU and need to look from the outside. To give OP a general idea about the odds, take myself as an example, I have PhD degree and my CV/resume/publication should be within the top 15% of all PhD degree holders. I am the reviewer of manuscripts for international journals. It is this highly specialised skill sets that make getting offer and Permit approval process smooth (I am very lucky in these, thank God).

The OP needs to google and do some research. Also, language is of secondary concern. The key is your skills.

Me too, only 2 Skype interviews before accepting the contract. Never been to Europe before. But these are odd cases, most of people get here as a tourist first, or because of having a Swiss bf or gf, family,etc.
Me too, I had three online interviews and accepted the job offer in Basel. Never step on the land of Switzerland before.

Recently, my boss told me I was "courageous" to accept an offer without seeing the workplace in real. Maybe he is just kidding.

Thank you very much for sharing your own opinions as well as experience, quite informative and meaningful. You seem a top talent, and your achievements are something to be proud of! Wish you all the best.
