Canton change_work permit_effect on C

Hello,
Does anybody know how does move from one canton to another for work?

I've been living and working in Geneva for a few years on a work permit attached to the company. I'm non EU, so job change is subject to authorization (as I was told by a lawyer). Now I'm starting to look for a new job and see some interesting opening in Zurich.
If I apply for this job - what happens to my permit? Should GVA permit be cancelled and then I apply from scratch to Zurich OCPM?
Will my years spent in Geneva still count for the permit C later?
Is it possible to get a job in Zurich while keep my residence and permit attached to GVA?

Thanks a lot in advance for sharing your knowledge and experience!

Nothing. If you however get a job offer and accept it then your prospective employer would need to seek relevant work authorization on your behalf assuming you do not yet have an unconditional right to work.

Should GVA permit be cancelled and then I apply from scratch to Zurich OCPM?
You would need to ask permission from canton Zurich before moving. There is no such thing as 'Zurich OCPM'. OCPM stands for 'Office cantonale de la population et des migrations' which is the name of the migration office in canton Geneva.

Will my years spent in Geneva still count for the permit C later?
It depends on the type of permit you have in Geneva and whether or not you plan on interrupting your continuous stay in Switzerland.

Is it possible to get a job in Zurich while keep my residence and permit attached to GVA?
As a non-EU you would need to seek permission from both cantons (permission to work in Zurich and permission to live in Geneva). Given the long commuting distance, I see slim to no chances of this being granted.

Re: Canton change_work permit_effect on C

with a C permit, EU or not, it's a C. You can move within the country, live where you want and work where you want. You are taxed where you are resident.

you mention the permit is linked to the company. This is not the case for a C. Are you sure you have a C as none of what I stated above applied for a limited B.

I read it that the OP wants to apply for a C permit in the future, and would like to know if changing cantons in any way affects the years counted. Emphasis mine:
