I have a quick question. Did "el_nota" specify their sex in another thread? When I read their opening post, I assumed that the OP was female since they explained that they were looking for a job as an au pair or a nanny.
An exemployer once told me "Never assume." It's a great bit of advice ( which I should follow more often...)

El Nota is a male. As he said in his first post here, he cannot find many au-pair positions. Most people are wanting female, not male, helpers.

Yes, it's confusing, I wondered that myself. Judging by his first post, I thought he was a she, but the name implies he is male (el in Spanish is the masculine singular form of the). No idea.

2.- Send emails to parents asocciations on schools of Switzerland to find another family (in the web I foubd the first one I cannot find another that wants a male)

Re: No german, no work

@ el_nota

I found what you need to bring to register in zurich.
here is the official link:
its in german, if you have someone to help you with translation.

here is a copy of the documents you need for Zurich.

Bei Schweizer Bürger/-innen benötigen wir:


Heimatschein (carta de origen, si no sabes que es, mandame un pm y te explico mejor)
evtl. Familienbüchlein (En caso de que lo tengas, no es obligatorio)
Dienst- oder Zivilschutzbüchlein (sofern dienstpflichtig) (no estoy segura, creo que es lo de la milicia)
Wohnungsausweis oder Mietvertrag (con un carajo que si te piden el contrato de arriendo)
Fr. 20.-- pro erwachsene Person (pagas 20 francos al registrarte)

A Swiss national is a Swiss citizen. It's the same. And Yes, he has all the rights and obligations.

I hear a crotchety old rancher on a dry dusty prairie pulling into the Shell station in his pickup truck, where he announces to a group of down-on-their-luck migrant workers, "Kein Deutsch, Kein Arbeit!!!"

Re: No german, no work

Let me see if i understand... "el_nota" went to Switzerland in order to find a Job in a Bank, in meantime, he tried (or worked...) as an "Au Pair" until found the job that he wants in a bank... he didnt get any, and now, he doesnt have a job, and dont like to work as an Au Pair, and pretends that the Switzerland Government pays him because he doesnt want any regular job? omg...

Re: No german, no work

No, I do not have a job and I think I cannot work without german, I have very little money, so if the gov. helps me getting a job (I doubt it without the language) or receive German classes to apply for jobs I would be grateful. The goal of this thing is work, believe it or not.

Unfortunately, I don't think its quite that easy. I heard they don't just hand out German classes anymore, certainly not for free.

I don't work, but I've said my £££ and enrolled in a local college to learn German. Plus my English seems to be an assest.

Re: No german, no work

Have you tried to work in some other field? like IT? (if you know something about coding or testing...) Im sure that with english could be enough for you to get a decent job =D, I´ve just heared that there are many American (and from other countries...) Companies that speak in english... =)

Just a tip that maybe can be helpful for you...

Citizens don't apply for permits!!! That's why there's so much talk about him being a citizen.
It's not why I was talking about it. I kept on with that because it wasn't even my point. When I said he should go home, I meant where he comes from. Now you can analyze that, but you know what I mean.

I never said anything about needing permission to be here, btw, but he does need to register.

Well, that depend on the person, I won't live on Aarau, but there are others like Zurich or Bern that are quite attractive to me. Also I lived in Laussanne for one month in 2008. Also I like Germany, Austria... more than France, Luxemburg, Monaco...

I like Madeira this time of year.
