Re: How did you find this forum?

Searching for the Basel Driver's License Form in Google before I realized it was useless searching in English. At least I found this site...

(I found the form too...)

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found it on Search.ch while looking for Britshop, search.ch is better for searching in CH.
for the rest of the world I use Google or dogpile.

Re: How did you find this forum?

Hi, I'm new and just found this thread, so 'Hello All!'.

I don't know about salaries at the Forum (Jazz), but my search on Google was for 'English Speaking jobs in Zurich' and it came up with this Forum!
Still was the best site I found and as such have joined the Forum.

Thanks for the employment advice also... still looking though...

Re: How did you find this forum?

I was looking for an apartment in the Lausanne/Vevey/Montreux area, and other things like the rules and regulations for working here - got here via google.

Must say that the amount of information here is phenomenal - thanks to everyone that has built it and those that have contributed to it.

I receive regular email postings from Google Alerts on the topic of Lucerne, Switzerland. Most often the postings are travel blogs or news/sports items. Entries from this forum have been included on several occasions.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found it for the first time about two years ago after I moved to the UK, when googling for any Swiss associations in the UK... Now I'm planning to move back to Switzerland and I re-found the forum while googling about associations of Brits in Zurich.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I found it on googling about Rental laws in Zurich/Switzerland. I had a tough 1 and half month searching for an apartment in Zurich. Being on temporary work permit, not many people entertained my applications. Finally I found one and my collegues started advising on a to-do, not-to-do list. Some of the points they mentioned scared me - so I figured I need to do some research on it, googled, and found this lovely forum...seriously, this is such a helpful forum, with loads of useful info !
Way to go English Forum!!

Re: How did you find this forum?

Thank you for this forum. I will be new to Zurich November 1st and preparing to come - this forum popped up on google and it looks like a great way to make contact, ask questions and hopefully wipe out some preconceptions.

Re: How did you find this forum?

I think it was from a Google search for renting flats in Zurich - but was a while ago now.
