From Jersey Shore to Zurich

Hello everyone,

Excited to join the forum! My wife and I have just arrived in Zurich from New Jersey (minus the super deep tan). I wanted to introduce myself and see if anyone had any useful tips on the following:

1. Finding a job, preferably marketing. I've started searching jobs.ch. And yes, I know I'll need a permit...

2. Joining a hockey team, inline or ice, I brought my equipment

3. Good places to go running in/near Zurich

Yes, I'll spend some time searching the forum for these answers myself too. And if anyone is interested in going for a run or playing hockey during the weekdays (since I'm currently not working), let me know.

Thank you!

Average response rate to introductions with 100 views = 3%.
My response rate = 0%.

Not even a hello... that's embarrassing... guess nobody likes the "Nu Joisey" guy

It depends, can you do an authentic joisey fist pump?

Welcome to the forum by the way.

Hi Joisey Guy,
Welcome to the Forum and the EF!! You did do the introduction on Friday night when most people are out socializing.

Good places to run would be along lake Zürich or along the Limmat. There are always people running there.

There will be many Americans, Brits, South Africans, and many other nationalities there.
