JoeyThompson posted HVAC/Refrigeration Tech Jobs in Bermuda on the Bermuda forum on September 12, 2014:
I am looking to relocate from the US to a place where my family and I can live a comfortable (not some sort of fantasy) life. It would have to be a place where I can still make a living as a seasoned commercial HVAC/Refrigeration Technician, like in a resort or in a high rise type of building. The question is.....How does one find out what such an occupation pays there? Is there a demand for that kind of knowledge in Bermuda? Boots on the ground report..... Joey

I have accepted an offer to work in bermuda, 85k plus bouns. Im coming alone, and is that enough to survive on the island, i will also be paying for housing and travel
Pinkandpurple replied most recently with:
Short answer is yes. You will need up to $2500 per month for housing if living alone, $400 for mobile, internet and TV, $500 per month for gas, electricity. which leaves you with enough for food and clothes. Plus capital outlay of $3K for moped or twice that for car.

If you are moving on your own, you could either do a house share or a bachelors apt to save money. Emoo is the best place to find a place to live or use a relocation company...

Expat Report Living in Hamilton, Bermuda by Pinkandpurple was published
Living-in-Hamilton
Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.

I didn't have long to dream as the decision to move here happened within two months. However I bought new clothes and planned my life with certain expectations some of which have proved true but several not so valid. I shall put this under numbered paragraphs:

1. Clothes - I envisaged smart work style clothes would be the normal wear even though I was not working professionally myself. So I bought smart tops and business trousers, jackets and smart shoes.

2. Furniture - I hoped to buy a really comfortable reclining chair such as an Ekorness swivel one and to sit in the sun drenched window reading ....

3. Outdoor life - i imagined spending much of my life in the sun and outside

4. Health care - I imagined an efficient clean and clinical environment with easy access to American style quality practice in both doctor and dentist

Ok , so i have been working up to moving to Bermuda for the last year , my ex partner came over last year , i was planned to join him later this year, we have now separated, i still really want to come to Bermuda as i have a job lined up and have worked extremely hard to get certain Qualifications. Ok so in your opinions, is this wise ,is it likely to see alot of each other, i have been to Bermuda a few times this past year so i realise the size. I would love nothing more than to come to work in Bermuda for lifestyle, culture and definately the job role but as is expected wouldnt like to bump into the ex partner everyday. Is this more than likely ? Thankyou

Wish I could be more encouraging, but not only are you likely to see your ex on the street, in the bank, definitely out at nights, but Bermuda is well known for loving to gossip .. one of the things that drove me nuts was that each evening, my (now) ex would ask me who the man I had lunch with at abc restaurant was. You need a thick skin and don't care attitude to get along there.

Hello everyone I have doing research for about a year now and am considering moving to Bermuda as long as I can get a job. I am a designated accountant in Canada. I will be coming alone so I was hoping for any comments/advice. I know this is kind of an open ended question, but any comments are appreciated! Thank you
DarleneMFortin1963 replied most recently with:
I live in Bermuda, If you find a job here, there are relocation companies that can help you with your move. But you can also look on Emoo Bermuda for apartments for rent, so you can see what is out there. There are no taxes when shopping on the island, but everything is more expensive than back home in Canada. If you have specific questions, just ask and I will see what I can do to help out Darlene

A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at: joshua@expatexchange.com.
