Internship/permit L to Fulltime position...how to apply for B permit?

Hey EF! I am on permit L and have been doing my internship for a startup company in Zurich. Now my company offers me a fulltime position. I would like to know if anyone has successfully applied for a permit B after the internship and how you did that? My company tried once and the officier just replied that since I was an intern, I am not "highly professional" enough to be considered for a permit B.
FYI, I am a non-EU.
Many thanks.

If they already rejected it, then you already have your answer, even it is an answer you do not like.

It is harder and harder for non-EUs as there is already pressures on immigration and tons of EUs that could probably do the job. As a start up company, they probably have no leverage with the authorities to boot.

As a non-EU national you can't apply for a permit on your own, it has to be done by your potential employer. They have to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national or someone else already living here with a valid work permit who could do the job before they'd be allowed to hire you.

https://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home...zulassung.html

As you can see under the Personal Qualifications section:

"Cadre, specialists and other qualified employees will be admitted. "Qualified employee" means, first and foremost, people with a degree from a university or institution of higher education as well as several years of professional experience. Depending on the profession or field of specialisation, other people with special training and several years of professional work experience may also be admitted."

As an intern you simply don't have the years of experience needed to make such an application possible.

You can't apply for a permit yourself anyway (as a non-EU), but a prospective employer needs to do so. In general, it is extremely unlikely that a recent graduate is eligible for a work permit. Recent grads normally don't fulfil the criteria necessary. More specifically, they lack specialization, experience and skills that would make them unique enough to not be available in Switzerland and Europe. And, as you see, the application has been rejected, not surprisingly. That's that - there's nothing you can do now, sorry.
