Hello! Thinking in moving to Switzerland, Schaffhausen.

Hi there,

First of all let me say that I found this forum when googling for some information and it is very helpful. So I decided to sign up and present myself.

The main reason for my registration is to ask you guys for some advice regarding me to move to Schaffhausen.

So, I'm Portuguese and I'm 29. My father and other family already lives there for many years now. When I was young I visited every summer and I kinda liked it. Unfortunately I didn't learn german, ended up learning italian due to television and some kids who lived nearby.

I'm thinking to leave this or the next month and trying to find a job. I have IT skills and networking skills, and speak portuguese, english and a little bit of spanish and italian as well. Do you think it will be hard to find a job in the region? Of course I will make sure to learn the language as fast as I can but from what I see by online ads it seems that it will be harsh, not speaking german is a major flaw for me.

Do you recommend some agency? Any site in particular? For the first years I don't really mind to work below my expectations and skills and learn german and adapt to my new life.

Thank you in advance and you people have such a beautiful and great country. Looking forward to it.

Not speaking German may not be too difficult for you job-wise if you're in IT. Try these websites to see what's available.
