Just moved to Zurich from Boston :)

Hi everybody,

I'm an American Korean (Korean national, but lived in the US for a long time) who just moved to Zurich from Boston with my husband. This is our first time in Switzerland and we love it so far (minus the language barrier). He will be starting a PhD program at ETH while I am just starting my job search. I'm an architect by training but am currently contemplating exploring other career opportunities. In preparation for the long haul (and to help with the job situation), I recently signed up for German classes which I'll start in a little over a week.

We are very excited to start our new life here!

Welcome to Zurich!


If you'd like to meet new people in Zurich, I recommend you the meetup groups or else the glocals. They organise a lot of different activities.


All the best!

Re: Just moved to Zurich from Boston :)

Welcome. The faster you learn German, the better you can integrate and maybe the job options increase as well. Best of luck .

Re: Just moved to Zurich from Boston :)

I'm in Zurich and am happy to meet up for a beverage one evening after work. Feel free to PM me. I was raised in South Carolina, but spent some childhood summer and winter breaks in Boston, Malden, and Bedford (Hanscom AFB).

Re: Just moved to Zurich from Boston :)

Welcome to Zurich! I am sure you will love this city and be amazed with all that Switzerland can offer you.

What I can suggest you is to check Girlfriend Guide to Zurich webpage on Facebook. They always organize different types of events; I 've been to few of them and had a chance to meet very nice people from Zurich.

Also, if you and your husband are sport fans, just go to one of the city's pubs (Paddys/Lady Hamilton) to watch a game on a weekend. These places are very popular with foreigners and a good alternative to make some friends as well.

Wishing you all the best!
