Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

Hi, I got my swiss B Permit after family reunification process. Its now about to 9 month but I did not find any job till now. I already have Master Degree in Physics from Germany and also registered at RAV in Bern Canton. I already got invitation for social benifit from Geminde but Im trying my level best to find job relevent to me and possibaly not to move to SozialHelfe. I am also not eligible to get RAV benifit as I did not work in Switzerland.Now my question is:

1: Is there any problem for B Permit extension after one year if I did not find any job?
2: Any suggestion to find relevent job`I already applied for lot of online advertised posted but did not get any acceptance so far?
3: Im almost out of money as invest all of my savings. Even I was thinking about Odd jobs but due to language problem did not find any offer.

Please help me in this regard
Anshuman

Re: Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

An acquaintance of mine just found a job in food packaging, near Bern actually, speaking little German and having no permit (he is EU).

Re: Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

No, I don't think so as long as you're still married to your Swiss wife. If she's not working then you may need to consider SozialHelfe.

Are you making it clear on your CV's that you have a B permit that allows you to work? It can make a difference as otherwise employers may think they'll have to go through the non-EU hiring process to employ you.

What have you done about learning German? This will also help your chances.

Re: Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

Can you program computers? Design electronic circuits? A Physics M.Sc. usually can some of these if not both, and there are still jobs in these domains in this country where local language is not a must.

Re: Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

can you apply for a PhD or even a research assistant. Compared to my home country the unis here appear to be very rich, work in English and very happy to have foreigners. Send your cv directly to everyone in your area regardless of where they are in Switzerland and if they are advertising or not. From my limited experience here I have found people can commute in for a few days for some face to face time and spend the rest of their time wrtting from home (and getting paid). Basel uni is known for its physics dept.

Re: RAV vs Sozial [returning Swiss citizen]

Anshuman, welcome to the EF! I can't help you as much as the others because I have never been in Switzerland. But I think that you should swallow your pride and use the social services that you are entitled to as a Swiss citizen. (And as most veteran posters of this forum know, Swiss citizenship is NOT easy for outsiders to obtain.) I also think that if you have a masters degree in physics, there should be jobs in the technology field (perhaps CERN could help?) for you in Switzerland.

In the meantime, best of luck! Our prayers are with you!

1) Are you actually a Swiss citizen, or just married to one?

2) Does your wife work? If so, how much does she earn? If she earns more than CHF 4.5k per month or so, you are not entitled to social aid, except perhaps for subsidised healcare premiums.

Indian acccording to his profile so married to a Swiss national.

Frankly the first thing you should do is learn a Swiss language - German, French or Italian depending on where you live. Even with a degree it's unlikely you'll be hired speaking only Hindi/English unless you have some years of experience to back your degree up - which from the sounds of it you don't. And any other "lower" tier jobs will require a Swiss language even more than the high level ones do.

Your wife presumably earns enough to keep you both so take an intensive course in the appropriate language and improve your chances of finding a job here. Even at CERN you're likely to need to speak French as well as English.

Re: Family reunification Permit Extension with No Job

OP, what have you done to improve/change your circumstances since this thread?

Job searching physics

As much as you might hope, just being married to a Swiss citizen is not going to make jobs fall into your lap. You need to network. Do you belong to any local clubs? Do you have contacts at any of the universities here? Can your German university give you an introduction to a company or university here?

I would avoid going on social help if at all possible. When you got married, your spouse had to prove she had sufficient funds to support you (or that your combined savings/income was enough). When your annual permit comes up for renewal, your finances will be examined again.

If you go on social, you'll also have extra scrutiny for a C permit and/or naturalization down the road.

Yes, German courses can be expensive. Think of it as an investment in your future! Without the language skills, you're going to continue to be frustrated and the gap on your CV will just grow.
