Just moved to Lausanne from the USA

Hello,
My family and I just moved to Lausanne from the States. Originally I am from Armenia, and my husband is Ukrainian, and we have a 3 years old daughter who was born in Texas. My husband undertook a postdoc position at EPFL, so that's is the reason of our move. I do not work yet at the moment, but I will be starting to look for a job starting may be from January, if I manage to get daycare situation solved for my daughter. I used to work at Dell when in US.

I am looking to meet new people as well as playmates form y daughter. She speaks 3 languages, and we are looking to introduce her (and us) to French.

Re: Just moved to Lausanne from the USA

Hi Gayuxa,

Welcome to Lausanne. I am sure you will like it here cos it has great quality of life for a family.

We are a 35 year old Irish-Peruvian couple with 3 year old boy. We are both seeking short-term emergency accomodation now until we find jobs in International Business in Lausanne region and get into the system officially here. I arrived here on 23rd Jan and have noticed that jobs are scarce but not impossible to find.

For you, Dell, HP and IBM are in Geneva so maybe you can contact them for work. Dell hire native English speakers.

Let me know if you wanna meet up for a coffee in city centre one day.

Regards
