Switzerland is probably one of the most liberal countries when it comes to matters of immigration. Several factors come together to make living and working in Switzerland more than just a remote fantasy. Just as the United States of America today and in the past, Switzerland truly recognizes the endless potential of ‘diversity’ but also that it cannot prosper in isolation.
If you beg to differ, a fact that makes Switzerland such a unique (and encouraging) case for immigration is that almost one-fourth of its population are immigrants who have moved to improve their chances of raising their standard of living. And this move is almost exclusively, thanks to the excellent Swiss jobs environment. And it isn’t just the menial work that is in high demand but above all the jobs of engineers, nurses, and top executives that many of several Fortune 500 companies established in Switzerland try to fill? Simply put, it won’t be a stretch to infer that for those living in Switzerland or considering to make the move, there isn’t much of a problem finding Swiss jobs as there so many of these across all industries and functions.
All this is truly in stark contrast to the conservative sentiments of several other Western countries which chose to isolate themselves by cultural and economic boundaries. But Switzerland is the one country that, to put it rather poetically, chose to be the the new United States of America.
While most countries are held hostage by the shrinking global economy, increasing average life expectancy, deteriorating healthcare and ever-more-expensive education, it is so much more surprising that Switzerland seems to be immune to these adverse conditions. No wonder of course that it is one of the most sought-after destinations for just about any talented, qualified and experienced professional. And theoretically, anybody can come to work in Switzerland.
With that said, it isn’t all rainbows and sunshine. Those wanting to work in Switzerland will often find out upon arrival that turning over a new leaf isn’t as easy as it may seem at first sight. More specifically, despite a great abundance of Switzerland jobs potentially available to the jobseekers there is a great deal of challenges to overcome before a person can secure employment and truly settle down in this beautiful heartland of Europe.
Living and working in Switzerland may seem like a fantasy to many but it doesn’t have to be that way. Every move to a different place, be it Switzerland or elsewhere, implies unforeseeable challenges. But none of these are insurmountable as for every problem there is a solution.
