I know this is a more travel-orientated forum, but does anyone know of a forum more geared towards permanant moving? I'm in Ireland and hoping to go to mainland Europe, no idea where yet - but I having trouble gaging things like jobs/living conditions in various places.
Specifially, Scandanavia, Holland and Slovenis
try www.expatica.com and www.expatriates.com
but there are loads of ppl here who have moved countries n stuff so you can ask here too! general information from a local is also really valuable!
I second the websites and recommendations given in #1. Just don't be put off by the seemingly endless rant about the Dutch and their culture on Expatica. If you're looking for work in the Netherlands (you probably are), I suggest you to look at the Undutchables website, though I find it not as good as the UK Graduate Careers website. The latter one also has information on a lot of other countries, though it's often limited. You also may want to read this recent thread.

if youre looking for work in NL then i would hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighly suggest you start looking now... unless youre getting a transfer from the place you work now, then just let it be known its HARD to find jobs here, and even harder to get the working visa....
Thanks all for your replies! Will check out the expatriates website. Holland is slipping off the agenda - a lot of people telling me it's not great for jobs. Oh well.... will try undutchables (love the name!).

That's a nice understatement!
