Hi Forum

Hi All,

I am a long time lurker but pretty new to the forum I missed the introductions thread.

This is my second time living in Switzerland 3 years in Geneva 2000-2003 now in Meilen outside Zurich for th elast 4 years. I am leaving Switzerland again shortly and will try to post about what I learn along the way. I am also happy to post about what I learnt in a year dealing with the RAV but most of that is extremely well covered. If you have any questions about the RAV, Meilen or the leaving process I am happy to share my knowledge.

Thanks
Doodlebug.

Re: Hi Forum

Welcome to the forum... leaving the country and having a year of experience with the RAV sounds like a very unfortunate combination.

Re: Hi Forum

Leaving the country will be incredibly sad. The children are almost Swiss as we integrated as best we could into the local community. I always advise any expat to fully unpack their bags. Too many live with their bags packed waiting for the next assignment.

The RAV are genuinely excellent in my experience, very professional and helpful. Not everyones experience I know but once I got past the difficulties of registering in German and filling out the forms every month in German it was very smooth. Probably helped by my clear eagerness to find a job. It was the first time since the age of 16 (some 23 years) so I cannot compare with other countries but they really helped me professionaly and from a personal pride and confidence perspective.

Who knows I may come back again in a few years.
