Price calculator gives an average minimum expense of 5200 for a 4 persons family.
As per same calculator :
Apartment hire (3 bedrooms) Outside of Centre is 2,958.70 Fr. x 0.334 = 988.20 Fr.

What are the actual hires for a three bedroom apartment outside of Geneva ?

Used to live in CH 40 years ago.How much is a bricklayer earning per hr as average to support those costs? Mind you Feldschlossen beer cost similar then. Bread slightly dearer now. It depends what you live on.

I'm Slovak student studying in Ireland IT with focus on Software Development, do you think it's possible and easy to fly into Geneva and find there some Software Development job? I've heard companies there are using lots of outsourcing from countries with cheaper programmers.
