New Greek in town

Hi all!!!
I'm Saradis from Athens and I just arrived in Zurich.
I'm working for HP at Balsberg Hardacher, and I'll really be glad to meet and make new friends.

Re: New Greek in town

Welcome Saradis and have a great start in your new carreer...!
What's the work environment in HP? Is german the corporate language or do you use english as well??

English is the corporate language as I am subcontracted to HP by Pomeroy IT UK. The environment is really friendly as I am only one week aboard with them. I'll tell you again in a month about them.

Re: New Greek in town

Welcome to "Swiss" (also known as "Switzerland") and the forum Saradis!

At first I mis-read your thread title as "New Geek in town" and thought *B.I.G Y.A.W.N*, then saw it as "Greek" not geek and thought *now we're talking!*

There are a fair number of Greek EFers and I do so hope some more of them will be along to welcome you as well soon enough. I'm totally in love with Greek mythology and ancient history and have been since childhood.

All the best and welcome once more.

You're welcome.

Check out the social events section of the forum and sign up for any of interest. There's lots of different stuff going on, so finding one or more you like the sound of shouldn't be hard.

Going along to these events is a great way to meet other EF members and make friends.

All the best.
