Switzerland is an excellent choice for expat engineers looking to expand their horizons. The remarkably stable economy and strong industry have led to a skills shortage especially in high-tech. Expats are attracted to Switzerland because of the high salaries and excellent working conditions. Switzerland is a beautiful clean environment in which to work and their standard of life is second to none. It is a very multinational society, with most adults speaking at least two languages as well as English. Due to the influx of highly skilled migrants, many companies use English as their corporate language and finding jobs in English shouldn't be difficult. The unemployment rate is at a record low of 2.4% (April 2019) and opportunities for career advancement are plentiful. Switzerland is in the EEA making it possible for EU citizens to work here with no visa requirements.
