beryltheperil posted relocation expenses on the Czech Republic forum:
I have been offered a job in Denmark but have to fund the move myself for which I have been quoted about DKK 170,000 which includes shipping the contents of my home, buying new electrical appliances, rental deposit etc and wonder if this is normal for large global companies these days to refuse to assist as I have received assistance in the past which made the move possible, My second question is that I have been trying to find out how much tax I will pay as I have read it can be as high as 52% which makes the salary less attractive but I have contacted the company about this issue and they have stated they cannot help me which isn't helpful as it would seem that I will only know what figure I will have to support my family and I, in my first paycheck, which is making me nervous. Any advice would be appreciated.

iamnotseanthomas posted How Do I Get Started? on the Czech Republic forum:
Okay, I need some advice: I'm 30 and I want to move to Prague. Forget about naturalization right now; I'm talking about moving to Prague from America and working there for a few years. And who knows what next... I'm well-educated: my alma mater is Northwestern University, where I majored in English Writing and World History. Currently, I'm a 2L law student in Chicago. Yet I have zero desire to practice the law in America; my entire plan was to get something with economic purchase power (hence, the Juris Doctor). I still plan on passing the BAR exam; I realize I might come back to America and I want to be prepared for the potential return. My question is: how do I find a job in Prague? I don't want to work in a restaurant. I've looked into teaching English in a foreign country and the TEFL certificate requirement. I'm open to this possibility. Is there anything else I should be looking into? Is there a job-search website I can access? Keep in mind: I only speak English. Any recommendations would be great. Thanks, Sean

Expat Report Culture Shock in Prague, Czech Rep was published
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Don't come without a job. If you don't understand something fully, hire a good translator, particularly if it's something legal. Some people think they know more English than they do, and you can be (un)intentionally misled. (Continue)

Dear Ms Svoradova, Having read your ad, I assume you need someone ASAP and although I’d be interested in the position I am not available until June 2016. Let me explain. I am an American and certainly a native English speaker, all my life in Denver, Colorado. I am 17 years old and at present half finished with my junior year in High School. After I will graduate from High School in May 2016 I plan to relocate to Czech Republic as I intend to pursue my university education at UMPRUM in Prague. I won’t be able to begin UMPRUM right away because I need to learn Czech first and so I plan on spending a year in Czech Republic just to learn the language. I have a conversational knowledge of Czech, having learnt from my Czech grandmother that used to visit us for months at a time when I was little. Only my father is Czech, in US since 1968, but at home we speak only English. One of the reasons I’d be particularly interested in where you are is because we have chalupa in Orlicke hory and I have bicycled through northern Morava with my dad and like the area very much. And I think I would really enjoy teaching and working with kids. I understand that you may not know your English language teaching position needs in 2016 but I’d appreciate if you could keep me in mind. As my dad I have a US passport and also a Czech passport so to work in Czech Republic is not a problem for me. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Jason Belcik

Ivamay posted House Hunters International: Renovation on the Czech Republic forum:
Are you expats living in Prague less then two years and are you planning to renovate your home? Are you outgoing and fun and interested in being on television? Then we might just be looking for you. House Hunters International: Renovation is an hour-long TV show currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America and focusing on international cities. The first half-hour of the series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process, by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where expats and their real estate agents tour 3 homes. The second half of the program follows the home owners, designers and architects as they embark on renovations. The renovation could be large or small. The filming time would be approximately 7 to 10 days all together and there is a reward which goes to the home owners for being on the program. We are hoping to start filming in the next few months, and follow the renovations for 2-4 months. Click here for a quick preview of the show: if you are interested, please contact Iva Smidova on or 739674203 for more information.
