Moving Abroad USA-SCHWEiZ

Hello!

Hello to forum. This is my first online experience connecting with other people from a different country that I am moving to. I have yet to find other sites like this. I am 31 year old female who currently works as a realtor and Construction Company Ownership in the USA. I am planning moving within the next 3 months. I have never been there before and I don't know what I am getting myself into but it's happening. I have a German Fiance that lives and works there that I will be accompaning. I don't want to sit idle without work but from other posts regarding my career, that field seems bleek. I am excited. I am a beginner at the language. Hope to talk to some great people here!

Welcome and good luck!

Have you looked into what is needed for a residence permit? I naively moved to Germany years ago because my German boyfriend was there-the authorities weren't too interested in that reason! In the end, it worked out but it was harder than I imagined. I am sure you know all this stuff - but just wanted you to have this in mind, as a non-EU citizen you might have a harder time. But I am sure the forum members who have more knowledge in these matters will be on soon!

I wouldn't worry about work in the first instance. As mentioned above - paperwork and permits are essential - minimum residential - work permits, I believe need to be sponsored by a prospective employer (not entirely sure of exact procedure, as I was fortunate enough to by-pass most of this).

Your chances of future employment in any field will be greatly increased with proficient local language skills ...... so you shouldn't have any concerns about sitting idly at "home", twiddling your thumbs - learn, learn, learn.
