B-Permit approved and Employer changes mind

Dear Friends,
I am facing a confusing situation. I hope some one would be able to help me out in that.
I have been in switzerland for more than 3 yrs now (arrived in Aug 2004), moved to geneva with my family as a dependant child, since my father is a diplomat there.
Got my residence status changed to B student type in Oct 2005 and untill a few weeks back, I had the same residence permit for Non EU.
Meanwhile as I completed my master's degree in Ticino canton I was offered job by a MNC and they applied for my work permit. The process took something like 2 months, and last friday when the Swiss authorities notified that my permit has finally been approved, the company found out that the project they needed me for could not be started. So rather than asking me to start working, I have been told to be patient and wait.
I have no problems in being patient, but I am afraid I might be told its not possible to employ me in the current circumstance. So, I am wondering if the B permit approved for me could be immediately transfered to another job/ employer ?

Officially the answer will always be it depends. Theoretically it can - you have done no wrong, but practically if you are a non-EU citizen this is a decision at a federal level. The one thing that is sure. Seeing as you are not being employed at the moment by MNC you can try without risk. Also be aware that if MNC do not take you on they owe you one weeks salary...
