Regarding Employment prospect plus work permit for a non-EU dependent

Hi all,

I am presently staying here on dependent L-permit and my spouse works here.

I had applied for vacancies in various companies in Switzerland and till date I have got no luck.
One of the well-known company out here has replied as I quote here:
"The local authorities have a very restrictive approach to applications for work and residence permits for new immigrants. In view of the existing legal situation, there is unfortunately no possibility that you will be granted a permit."

I have also spoken to the HR personnel of another very well known company who had requirements matching my skillset and who have explained me the exact same thing.

In both the cases, I have come to know that since this skillset is quite niche here, so they are now getting resources from non-EU country through service providers.

Now, my question is, since I could have also been eligible and since I am in Switzerland presently, should I not be given preference over folks they are getting from outside?
Is it really true that there is no chance that I will be granted work-permit here?

Any suggestions/advice is welcome.

Many thanks.

What does this mean exactly? If it means that the work is being done by 'offices' in another country, one can see why this is useful from a Swiss point of view. No paperwork for permits needed, no housing necessary, no health costs, no schooling costs for the children of the workers, no sick-benefit to be paid when a worker is ill, no roads, no parking places, no rubbish removal...
Similar in a way to the old 'Saisonniers' ruling where the workers had to go home for a spell ever year, and thus never qualified to bring their children over. Inhuman, yes, convenient, very much so.

Nopes, what I meant is the IT service providers are getting folks from India to Switzerland for the same work.

What country are you from? Are your skills an exact match?

I am also from India.
And yes, my skillsets are an exact match. Even the concerned HR had said the same.
