Unfortunatelly what Jose Antonio said is true. I started to work in Basel 2 months ago and I can say that even if the city is near the border with France, they all speak german. Is not so common for them to speak other language, so the best for you is to adapt to their habits and try to learn the language of the local region.Concerning german region of Switzerland, I shall give you only a small advice, if you will select this area: try to learn the pure german, and after their dialect.Let's say that is a little bit different, and the fact of knowing some german can help you a lot after.
Concerning the job, Zurich is the city where you could find some jobs, where the main language which is required is english, and this usually by Banks like UBS or Credit Suisse.
