Hi everyone! Just a friendly introduction :)

Hi,

Happy new year everyone! Although, I joined the forum a few months ago I've never formally introduced myself. I'm 33, living in Basel since a little over a year and in case my username doesn't give it away, I am female.

I moved to Switzerland because my boyfriend was offered a job and I kinda like that man so, when he asked me to come with him I said "yes". I naively thought finding a job for myself wasn't going to be difficult (and boy it has been). My background is in design and visual arts, I've applied to internships, volunteering, tried freelancing and nothing. I am learning German, currently completing B2 level and I nevertheless I continue to feel very isolated.

This forum has been very helpful to me, whenever I've had doubts or felt lonelier than usual. So, for that I thank all of the active member and not so active members that keep this a very supportive and friendly community. Thanks a lot!

Best wishes to all,

DD

Re: Hi everyone! Just a friendly introduction :)

Hi DD, welcome! I totally understand what you mean about feeling isolated here and agree with you that this forum has been such an amazing help I wish you the best on your job search -- I have a feeling that the better your German gets, the more offers you'll get. Good luck

Thank you so much. German is so difficult though, I continue to take my classes and I'm finding myself liking the language more and more every day

Re: Hi everyone! Just a friendly introduction :)

Hi Daisy,

Welcome to Zürich! I'm new here too. I know what you mean about the loneliness, and the challenges in learning German! If you're ever in the mood for some German practice with another non-native speaker (I'm American and learning too), or just feel like getting a coffee/wine/beer/cocktail in the city, let me know.

Hi Daisy!

Welcome to Switzerland

I'm new to the forum but have been in Zurich for about 3 and a half years now and I still get the feeling of being lonely-mainly because also I don't work and spend time at home.

I hope everything goes well with the job seeking
