I Am Job: Updated


After almost 6 months I finally did it, I got a job! This is a game changer, it will be a few months before it all settles and Husband and I can see where we stand but it is unlikely you will hear anymore posts about being poor in the world's most expensive city any more. I may need to find a new angle.

I am over the moon, I did enjoy my run as a 'Hausmann' but as I said in my first ever post, complete and total dependance is not something that I would ever truly feel comfortable with (it felt nice and weird like a foot rub from a monkey). I will soon be joining the ranks of all my fellow ex-patriates and begin contributing to this society who has more money than sense (and I will be one of them now, mwah ha ha).

Not going into to details on the job and company as its not very professional but I have managed to achieve a few things career-wise by moving to this new country where I do not even speak the local language.

  •  I changed my industry. My previous experience was very much in Administration and Customer Services yet I have managed to walk into a job in a completely different area which I have been trying to do for years
  •  I will be writing for a living. Corporate writing but as I said before writing has rejuvenated my soul so to be able to say this is my job is fantastic
  • We won't go without. I've heard about these crazy Swiss salaries but it was not until I held my contract in my hand that I realised how much mine and Husbands life was going to change
What does this mean for my Blog, well I am not going anywhere, I love hanging out with all you guys and I think this bug has bitten me badly. It may become less but I definitely won't but switching off for good. 

So if any of you are around in Zurich this Friday come join me for a celebratory drink. Soon they will all be on me.
