New members of the Turkey forum, introduce yourself here – 3rd quarter of 2016

Hi all,

Newbie on the Turkey forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Turkey if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

PD : The thread New members of the Turkey forum, introduce yourself here – 2nd quarter of 2016 continues below!

Hello all  :)  and special thanks for this well structured forum  :top:

This is Mohamed, I've been in Kocaeli (100 km from Istanbul) for one year now. I learned the language and I can manage simple communications now, althought I doubt that I could handel a job interview in Turkish. I have two engineering diplomas from Tunisia along with one year of work experience. My plan is to move to Istanbul where I would have far better chances of finding an engineering job as a foreigner. I had an interview last June and they haven't answered yet. I know that it's a bit complicated for a newbie with no contacts, I also heard about the new laws for employing foreigners but I couldn't get any details about that. I would very much appretiate any help you guys can offer; new laws, when it will be implemented, its advantages, where to look for a job, good affordable accomodation... 

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this and thanks again for this Forum,

Hy dear

I am also looking for a part time housekeeper (1 or 2 days per week). If you know anybody looking for a bit of an income, please let me know.
