Wanting to come to Switzerland!

Hello!

I've never really used forums before so here goes!

I work in music and video and do quite a bit of corporate animations and videos. I have been freelance for about five years and am now looking at my next career move.

I have visited Switzerland several times and spent time in both the French and Swiss alps as well as the Jura.

I speak a good level of french and I really would like to make the move out there! I would really appreciate any help or advise about work and any common mistakes so I could get them out of the way as soon as possible!

Thanks in advance!!

Re: Wanting to come to Switzerland!

Welcome to the forum.

Have a good look at the Employment section of the forum, in particular the three top posts labelled as "Sticky". You will find a lot of excellent resources, information and hopefully specific answers to your questions there.

There is another long running and excellent thread entitled "Help for Businesses/Freelancers in CH" which may also provide some useful info for you as a freelancer and if that's what you intend doing here.

Your knowledge of French is definitely a positive and I'd build on that as much as possible even before moving.

Hope that helps and good luck!

I've been scanning through the "Sticky" posts but I'll check the "help for business..." thread out now! Thanks for the response!

Re: Wanting to come to Switzerland!

Hello everyone! Filipino here working in Dubai. Just registered as a new member here in the English Forum Switzerland. And Just earlier today I met 2 old ladies from Switzerland, and they suggested me to go to their country because jobs are well-paying, people could work though they are on tourist visas and the government would not just let any foreigners go back to their home country even if they don't have any contracts yet. According to them, foreigners are given longer time to find jobs. From a short conversation with them, I felt excited to work and live in Switzerland. Could anybody tell me if this is correct or give me more ideas/truths about living and working in Switzerland?

By the way, I am working as a Receptionist/ Navigator of the aquarium facility of a famous 5-star hotel in Dubai. This is where I met them and they suggested Zurich and Basel where there are also aquariums for possible employment.
