Are you from outside Europe and tried to get a job in Switzerland? What has your experience been like?

Switzerland relies heavily on foreign talent but there's some evidence that the immigration system makes it difficult for companies to secure permits for the skilled workers they need to remain competitive.

While there are no quotas for workers from countries that are part of the EU and the European Free Trade Area, the situation is different for nationals from so-called third countries such as the United States, India, and China. 

Are you from a third country and applied for a job in Switzerland? What has your experience like with the immigration system?
