Hard time to get a resident permit B

Hi everyone! I couldn't find anything similar in the forum so here it goes:

My name is Eduardo, a 21 year old Brazilian guy that in the past year moved to Australia to take the English to a next level. Now I’m an English teacher certified by Cambridge! According to tutors during the course, my English is considered native-like with a mid-Atlantic accent (thanks to mom that always made me talk in English during international holidays and with foreigner friends).


My only concern at the moment is related to my VISA. I’ve already applied to many different schools in Switzerland. Even with experience as trainer (in engineering companies) and as private English teacher (not just teaching foreigners but also helping native speakers) I’ve been finding hard to get into the country/market. According to the schools, teachers are usually hired when already in the region, but only employers are allowed to request a VISA.

What I’m kindly asking is some kind of support getting this residency permit (B) that allows me to work.

Thank you for your understanding and looking forward to meeting you all at my new home-country,

Warm Regards,

Eduardo

Re: Hard time to get a resident permit B

If no institute helps you in CH, try the French / CH border to organisations like this:

We've had previous threads related to teachers of English ( search button might help using keywords teacher+english as well as look below the page for Similar Threads ) that might give you a better picture of your prospects here in CH.

And a warm welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately it doesn't work like that. The job has to come first and there are many residents already available. There is no shortage of English teachers.

Re: Hard time to get a resident permit B

I think it has to be done in this order if only it was so easy...

First find a job and proof of offer with a work contract.

Then start applying for somewhere to live, you have a better chance of finding a place if you have proof of a job.

Only then can you apply for a residency/work permit as you need a permanent address for this.

Hope that helps and good luck with your searches.

Stewart

Re: Hard time to get a resident permit B

It might be your age that could make it difficult to get into some position here. You are young, you can still study more while you are working on your experiences as a teacher. That could make you more interesting to your potential employer. It is true, however, there are already many experienced experts in the country, and with working visas. This market is already very multilingual and has been for decades. Good luck, nonetheless!
