Editor's guide: Expat voices in Switzerland
Expatica welcomes you to its Expat Voices section, and invites you to take part in one of our series of questionnaires on life in Switzerland.
Our Expat Voices series gives the international community a chance to share their perspectives on life in Switzerland. We now have four different Expat Voices questionnaires catered to artists, writers, entrepreneurs, and expats in general. Want to be published? Fill one out!
Our original Expat Voices questionnaire invites you to share your general experience of living in Switzerland. We ask about shopping, food, language, culture and what you like most and least about living in Switzerland.
Read about Krissy Jackson who appreciates the strong family values in Switzerland and living in a clean, safe place where she can give her son his space and not worry. Italian chef Walter Guariento finds living in Switzerland exciting -- except the food! The insular Swiss attitude may be a 'hard nut to crack', he warns.
Our Expat Entrepreneurs questionnaire invites entrepreneurs in Switzerland to share their experiences of setting up and running their businesses abroad. The encouragement and tips offered by the entrepreneurs participating in this series makes these interviews an invaluable read for those contemplating starting a business in Switzerland.
Read about expat entrepreneur Marisa Steyn, who shares her experiences of setting up a business in Switzerland, bringing functional South African art to the country where the very best is expected. Ernst Bechinie, an Austrian entrepreneur and coach, appreciates the political system in Switzerland, though he's puzzled that it works.
Expat Writer questionnaires are for published journalists and authors (online and print) with established success as writers in Switzerland.
How has living abroad influenced your work as an artist? Our Expat Artist questionnaire finds out more about your life as an international artist in Switzerland and asks about your creative work, how you experience the local artistic community and the kinds of financial support which are available to artists working in Switzerland.
