Work --> Education --> Back to Work?

Hi All

does anybody have experience with the following situation
1) Working in switzerland with a B permit for a few years -->
2) leaving job to pursue masters at a swiss university -->
3) seeking work again

For 2) i assume the status of the permit changes from work B to a student B ? Please confirm

For 3) does it play any role that you have been working in switzerland since the last many years to be able to improve your chances of securing again a work B/L permit ?

Or the same rules will apply again for someone coming from another country to study ?

Thx

Re: Work --> Education --> Back to Work?

I did this a few years ago; worked for 4 years on a B, then quit to start a PhD in Bern. I retained my B and it was actually automatically upgraded to a C whilst in the middle of my research project. It all went seemlessly.
EU by the way.

The rules will apply which at the moment state that non-EU graduates are supposed to be on the same rung of the hiring ladder as Swiss/EU nationals for 6 months after they graduate.

Whether that will continue to be the case in the future we'll just have to wait and see when they decide what they're going to do about the recent immigration vote.
