Made with love from Philippines to Zurich

Hello everyone,

Finally decided to create an account after several times of landing on this forum while searching answers on the Internet (So far, this is where I got best opinions/suggestions)!! Hoping to meet some of you guys, I need to make some friends here. I'm starting to feel a bit homesick with all the changes around me.

For the mean time, I'd love to hear your pieces of advice on getting started in Switzerland, where to look for a job and how to land one. Currently, I'm devoting my time into learning the natural language (German and a lil French) and programming languages. But I would like to start meeting friends because life is more fun with friends.

Thank you!

Re: Made with love from Philippines to Zurich

Welcome to the forum.

Do you already have a residence permit to be here? Because if not, you're not going to find it easy to get a job since employers have to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national who can do the job before they'd be allowed to hire you. Non-EU hiring criteria is here

Welcome to the forum, and to Dübendorf which is my neck of the woods.
What kind of work are you looking for?
