I think the person who posted the first post should update it with the current situation - in June the government has decided to relise another 4000 quotas for the whole country.
This is quite good news isnt it.

Re: Work Permit Quotas Lowered 50% for 2010

Hi, so can I have an overall picture of how I should treat this issue?
I arrived Basel in July, an non-EU member, to look for marketing jobs (11 years in fast moving consumer goods) and try to settle here with my boyfriend. Yesterday, two headhunters sort of turned me down by saying
First one: do you have a working permit for Switzerland? If not, they are very hard to get at the moment and companies are recruiting across Europe where there is a reciprocal arrangement rather than outside of the EU.
Second one:
Switzerland made changes to its visa process 6 months ago that made it near impossible for individuals outside of the EU to gain entry to Switzerland. For particularly rare skills this can be waived, but it is incredibly unlikely.

It sounds devastating for me to hear so. How should I treat this news? Still look for jobs or pack and go? What are the tips to tell the hunters to continue working on my cases or any recommended head hunters who are more willing to offer helps for non-EU members?

Great thanks.

No. It is not a new permit but a change to the existing one.

Re: Work Permit Quotas Lowered 50% for 2010

In reply to spirit: Not knowing your job and its 'uniqueness' its hard to judge whether or not you should pack up and go. But if your job is something that a swiss person can do, and you do not have a residency permit, then yes it would be near impossible for a non-EU person. There are many threads over the last year dealing with this

I would suggest perhaps looking at jobs while overseas rather than in Switzerland. As hard as it is to do so

Correct. Companies will always take the easiest path providing the workforce is available at the right price.

This statement is absolute bollocks - ignore it.

Plenty of jobs here in the south if they stop the daily transborder migration.
Unless those are the jobs the Swiss don't want....
It's not just the jobs the Swiss don't want. It's also the companies who often get away with paying quite a bit less to the transborders than to the Swiss.

Thanks for the response. So is it still possible but only much harder? I found that it seems not a big topic in the forum if the quota reduced significantly. Is this news indeed that impactful or just some same old thing?

Now, does companies/hunters tend to check the permit status before reviewing your CV?

I think I have quite a few year experience and that could be my advantage. Now it comes to another question of how to make hunters/companies want to take a look at my CV? Any tips?

Im sure hunters and companies will look at your CV. And I'm sure experience will get you far. And a lot of the time people won't actually ask you if you have a residency permit until the last possible time in the interviewing process

But you have to understand that it will be out of the company's hands if they try to hire you. They can put in the paper work and wait for 3 months and then its with the people at the permit office (and thats not a good bet).

Currently this is the first question companies and head hunters are asking. Most head hunters ask it when you register. afaics company recruiting sites stipulate a work permit as a pre-req to applying.

Thanks, I also tried some hunters/companies and they didn't ask me that question in the beginning. I think I will keep the way it is and try to impress them to have interview (read tips from the other section to learn more). Nothing more can be done at the moment I supposed.

Re: Work Permit Quotas Lowered 50% for 2010


thaks for the link.

Actually if referring to this link, the one at the beginning of this thread:

http://global-immigration-news.total...d-50-for-2010/

and this one: http://www.englishforum.ch/permits-visas-government/82081-new-quota-non-eu-second-half-year-2010-announced.html

one can conclude that at least B quoata has been increased in 2011 comparing to 2010
In 2010 it was 2,000 initially and then 1,000 added in July 2010, so in total 3,000.
While for 2010 - the B quota is 3,500
