Non-EU Student B Permit into working one?

Hi, everyone!

I was searching through the forum and could not really find an answer...Currently I do my MBA in Montreux, so I have a B permit as a student. I am in Switzerland for 3 years already, as I did my BBA in Lausanne.

I am offered a job in IT in a Swiss company, I do know that I can work only 15 hours per week, as a student..But I would like to convert it into a working one...Company is ready to go stand for me, but what will be the procedure? I heard about converting student B permit into a working one, but person spent 15'000 CHF for his lawyer...Do I really need to spend this much or there is a way to go through this process, just having the company behind me?

And the other question is about the contract? Which one can I sign as a student? It would be the same contract, as a normal employee, but specifying that I am going to work for only 15 hours? To which authorities do I/company has to report about the fact of employment?

Thank you in advance for your responses,

Regards,
Yaroslav

Quite a confusing post.

As a student you are allowed to work a limited number fo hours per week with your existing permit.

If you are moving to full time employment or to part time employment i.e. giving up being a student then the company must do the paperwork.

Well yes, I understand this, but what paperwork? What is the procedure? Generally it is not allowed to switch from student permit to the working one..But as I have to re-new the permit every year, is it possible to just apply for a working permit when I need to re-new the student permit that I have?

You do not apply for a work permit. Your future employer has to do that for you.

Does my future employer have to contact the commune where I live now? Or there is a different type of governmental agency that is responsible for such a thing?

Yes, that would be a good place to start. At some point they may also have to deal with the federal authorities.

Re: Non-EU Student B Permit into working one?

i understand that the student B permit "sejour pour formation " you can work 15 hours but. when received mine last year it had a note saying i was "not permitted to work without authorisation "
