Re: How did you find this forum?

My boss told me about this Forum when I arrived here "If I needed any info on expat issues" ... Had no issues really but got carried away with the "fun" part of it...

Only realised that a couple of weeks ago.. hope my boss dont frequent here and will get through my probation

Re: How did you find this forum?

A friend told me about it. I am glad that I have found it. Found already a few answers for our SAT TV. Not so easy here to get all done.
Will most likely stay for another 2-3 years. Thanks to all

Re: How did you find this forum?

I'd just been offered a job and was desperately googling to see whether I'd enjoy/could afford to live in Switzerland.

I think the answer to both of those questions is yes.

Re: How did you find this forum?

A user on Toytown posted a link to this website for English speakers in Switzerland. I have always wanted to visit and next Summer I will (although it won't be a proper visit). Granted, travelling and living in a country are two different sets of circumstances entirely and I know as I have lived in both England and Sweden. I have always been fascinated by the expat (having been one in the past and hope to be one again in the near future). I have always suffered from wanderlust and I enjoy reading other points of view when one is not residing in their land of birth.

Re: How did you find this forum?

By chance! I googled random words and I found one of the threads.

I liked the info I found in various threads and decided to join and share my tips and experiences

The purpose of this thread is to collect a bit of information from you about how you found this site. If you've just arrived please post your introduction in a separate thread - replies on this thread should just tell us a little bit about how you found us.

For example - did you find this site via a google search? If so, what were your search terms (we rank quite highly in google these days and it is interesting to see how many people find us using a variety of search terms!)

Did you see a flyer somewhere? If so, where was it?

Were you told it about it by friends or collegues? Did someone send you a link to a thread, and you explored the forum a bit and decided that you liked it?

Maybe you got given the link from a relocation company or company information pack, if so - which company was it?

Word is spreading and the forum is growing rapidly - so I'm just trying to build up a picture of how people are finding our little community!
I typed minimum wage CH and I turned out here

Re: How did you find this forum?

I'm not even sure anymore what I was googling for, but EF came up, and I kicked myself for not having looked sooner.

Granted, not many people from my neck of the woods seem to be here, but still, looks like a great site!
