Hello From Greece - Just a few questions

Hello my friends from Greece

My name is Dimitrios and i just registered to your amazing forum ι was looking for a community like this to join beacuase my wife and i want to immigrate to swiss.

I believe is logical to have some fears for this and a lot of question.
I have allready read few threads.

We took this desicion because things here in greece as you listen and see going from the bad to the worst....

We are both 27 years old.

So...

I have allready start looking for job through internet
and i sending my Cv

I have a bachelor degree in Nursing but i am following another carreer here in greece as Sales Consulant with 3 years Experience.

I dont Know how easy it will be to find something in this field in swiss.

I speak Greek and English and writing too.

As i read allready the swiss is a multilanguage country
German-French-Italian

and i dont know how i will able to contact with people in daily life.....

are the people there friendly?

......

My second thought is how much money i will need for the first 6 months...?
Considering that we are two persons.

If finally made it and arrive there which language to choose to learn?german french?

existing education programs to learn the language>>

if you can give me some links to read for beginners from this forum i i will appreciate it...

thank you very very much

Re: Hello Fromo Greece -Just a few questions

Hi, I think you should have a really good read through the relevant forums and once you've digested the info, post any concrete questions you have in the appropriate thread. It's difficult to give advice to such a big question.

I wish both you and your wife lots of strength and energy to find the right move but have to say it's not easy to make it in Switzerland without a sought after profession and without language abilities.

However where there's a will, there is a way.
Good luck.

Re: Hello From Greece - Just a few questions

Hmmmmmmmmm. Those are many difficult questions.

If you look at the Pharma industry companies, you will be more
likely to find English speaking sales jobs.

Roche, Amgen, Novartis are a few of the companies....

Generally speaking, there are more jobs in the German speaking parts of Switzerland...

Re: Hello From Greece - Just a few questions

you'll have no trouble communicating with everyone
foreigners are very welcome
making friends is so easy
as is finding a job
if you don't work, the government will give you money
finding a modern flat in the centre couldn't be easier
you can fly last minute cheaply to anywhere in the world
shops are open until late, 7 days a week
anything you could want to buy is available and cheap. especially meat and quality furniture. In fact most things are very cheap
taxes include things like seeing a doctor and a dentist
the choice of restaurants is superb

....in London

Re: Hello From Greece - Just a few questions

hallo there,

communicating in everyday life is not going to be a problem
making friends it will!
about which is appropriate languange depends where you are going to live
you will miss the sun mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
in any case, i suppose if you find a job you will have a specific time contract so, you can come for this time and see if this country suits you or not
for sure you have 3 flights per day 2&a half hrs, you are close
i suggest you find a work first before you come
how much you need for 6 months depends where you stay ofcourse
if you need anything else more specific dont hesitate to ask
