Hi all,

Hope to hear from you,

Hello everyone, I'm new on this forum: my name is Mike, I live and work in Boston but am considering moving to Vienna with my wife and 2 young kids.

---I'm most curious about how hard it is to find a job in Vienna.  I was planning to teach English for the first year or two and then find a more traditional corporate job.

However, I've read that the number of jobs teaching English is in sharp decline, is this true?

Thank you Julien and for the chance to introduce myself!

Hi, I will be in Vienna for a conference for about three weeks. Hope to seek for help in finding new friends, especially filipinos out there. :)

Message me if you want to have coffee and meet. Thanks

Hello all. My name is Mike, I'm 32, and I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri, USA  and am looking into moving to Austria. I'd expect it to be a permanent move, or at least permanently out of USA, so I am especially interested in advice on citizenship and anything related to permanent living there. I've noticed what little I've found on apartments in Austria, they are mostly furnished... I would love it if someone could point me towards where to find unfurnished apartments online, especially outside of the larger cities as I'd prefer to live somewhere smaller, preferably in Salzkammergut.

As for a job, I'm an electrical engineering design consultant and will be able to continue working at least close to full-time doing what I do in America as long as I have solid internet access. I have visited some smaller towns in Austria and had what seemed to be solid internet access, so I'm not really worried about finding a job, though I may look for permanent employment in the long run. It's just not an immediate worry.

Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm Alex, 32 years old, History professor but worked all kind of jobs. Married and we have one beautiful kid.

I plan moving to Vienna in spring of 2017. Currently learning German, hopefully so I can pass the A2 test at the Goethe Institute at Belgrade, before moving to Austria.

Hope to meet friends, of course and make new contacts.

See ya :).

Hello everyone! I'm Laura, an Italian girl that moved to Carinthia three years ago.

I'd like to share my expat experience and hope to find some tips.


Hello all!
I will be moving to Vienna next month to be with my boyfriend, I'm not an EU citizen and will be searching for any kind of jobs as a start, I speak Arabic, English, French and Italian and already started German courses. Is finding a job in Austria really hard?

Thank you in advance
