Hey from Portugal

Hi guys,

My name is Carlos and I'll soon be working in Lausanne.
Currently I'm looking for an apartment but the process isn't easy
Looking forward to explore the forum.

Best regards.

Hi Carlos. Good luck with finding an apartment. Be prepared to do a lot of ass kissing.

Yup, I thought it would be easier to find an apartment in Lausanne, got to keep digging...

I'm kind of divided between a serviced apartment (expensive but more flexible to terminate the contract) and a furnished apartment. I was in shock when i found out that I would have to pay a couple of months plus a 2 month deposit, because I don't have a permit but...those are the rules so, no problem in following them.

Any Portuguese bros around here?

Re: Hey from Portugal

I'm not a Portuguese, but share the same Family Name as stated under your User Handle, so kind of a Bro here (long story from half around the world).

I'm also looking forward to move one day into Switzerland, but still haven't found any luck on jobs from abroad. But hopefully soon.

Good luck with your new life and job. Enjoy!

Rocha power, right? Where are you from?

I battled for a couple months and I landed a job in Lausanne. Keep trying and we'll talk again, this time, maybe you will be already in Switzerland!

Yep.

Born and raised in Mexico, but also Hungarian, so now I am trying to make my way in the old continent with benefit of an EU nationality

Thanks for the cheering. I have been trying a little longer than 1 year though, but not focusing primarily on Switzerland, so that could be a reason.

Anyways, hope all the best and be sure we will talk again.

OK. The problem with looking for work in another country/continent is when they call you up for a face to face interview. If you get it on the first try, that's great, because if not, you have to make a lot of trips.

Good luck!
