Does any of you know if I get any help from the state in finding a job? I understand they have here an office called RAF (?) parallel to the UK's Job Centre (?) in which they offer free German courses and help with job finding.
Will I be entitled to get help from the RAF once I register?
"RAV"

No you won't. It is the Swiss unemployment agency, so a bit like the job centre... but more strict. You have to have paid into the AHV system for 12 months then be made unemployed to benefit from unemployment payments and free courses.
