When I moved to Switzerland, everyone told me that being a freelancer is not safe, that that’s not how it’s done here. You needed a minimum of $6k in order to live comfortably here. So, I applied to over 100 jobs. I got friends to internally refer me to Facebook and Microsoft. This all lead to 102 rejections.
