I think the starting point would be to get a job offer and for the employee to make an application for the required permit. I don't know whether you have in mind to break/end your studies to achieve this.

But anyway I am unaware of any reason why you cannot seek employment while on a student pass... although it would of course not mean you will be approved for a permit, even if offered a job.

I hate to sound suspicious but isn't this post sounds like those foreigners who come here under pretext of student pass and try to hoodwink into flesh trade or increasingly-tight work visa?

I wouldn't wanna break my studies halfway, especially if I have to travel all the way from India to do it here.
