Best way to find a job in Grenoble and avoid commuting to Geneve?

by FABGLOBTROTTER

Hi dear VT friend!

I am moving to Grenoble soon and some of you suggested, in the forum, to find a job in Grenoble instead of Geneva, I would like to get some advise about how to do this. So far I have been searching and finding lots of jobs in Geneva but not in Grenoble, could you recommend any special jobsites? or which will be the best way to find a job in the city according to you?

Thankss! cheers

I have not myself any information on job research sites but you should find some answers to your queries on http://www.alliancefr-grenoble.org/. Have you tried this link ?

The best way to find a job in the city depends highly of the kind of job you are looking for. You should have a look on the site of the Technopole "Inovallée". This is not a jobsite but it will show you what are the kind of companies working in it. Others companies can be found outside of "Inovallée".

http://www2.inovallee.com/

I paste :
A technology park dedicated to innovating companies.
As the first French technopole whose ambition is to favour bridges between Research and the Industry, inovallée is a 110 hectare technology park set across the municipalities of Meylan and Montbonnot, which today unites 310 cutting-edge companies and 9,500 jobs at the heart of the alpine valleys of the Grenoble basin.

How can we say, knowing nothing about your qualifications, work area, experience, or even whether or not you speak French?! Things are going to be different if yuo are an IT specialist, translator, or building labourer. But I can't imagine it could be cost-effective to commute to Geneva from as far away as Grenoble (Annemasse, OK!) unless you were earning a really good salary (or perhaps if you have free accommodation in Grenoble).
Assuming that you speak French (and if you don't you will surely increase your chances if you learn), see http://www.grenoble-emplois.com/, http://www.rhonealpesjob.com/offre_emploi_ville/offre_emploi_grenoble.htm, www.helpemploi.fr, www.optioncarriere.com/emplois_grenoble_82413.html, ..

You can also go to the normal French unemployment service in Grenoble, http://lannuaire.service-public.fr/services_locaux/rhone-alpes/isere/assedic-38185-01.html or if you are looking for cadres jobs (management, techy) then also search APEC http://cadres.apec.fr/delia/MaCarriere/Agenda/ApecViewAgendaEnSavoirPlus/currentTopic_TOP_2048/currentTopic_ART_null/topicMenuContextuel_TOP_323/topicMenuContextuel_ART_null/currentArticle_ART_41928/backArticle_ART_41872/A+Grenoble.html

Travel Tips for Grenoble

by cissou7

Go to the city center, for shopping it's quite pleasant, but not big. 'Grand Place' which is a commercial center in the suburbs, does not worth to get lose to find it I think, well I have to soften this as this commercial center has just been renewed. I have not seen it but I guess it's pretty attractive now. I finally advice you to get out from Grenoble to take more time to visit its country side: the Alps!

Musée de Grenoble, the rear & quartier St Laurent

by JLBG

The museum was created in 1796 and had since its beginning important collections coming from confiscations during the Revolution. However, it is especially well known for its fine modern collections. Beginning in 1920, its conservatory bought many paintings from young artists that were not yet recognized but who are now highly prized.
The museum moved to a new building, especially designed as a museum, in 1994.

Europole

by JLBG

At dusk, Yann Kersalé transforms the trade city into a moving sculpture of light which colors and rhythm are monitored by sensors that analyze the traffic.
Yann Kersalé is the author of other works using light as a matter : Opéra Bastille in Paris (France), the docks of Saint Nazaire (France) or the "Parc de l'Orangerie" in Strasbourg.
Sorry, I have no picture at night. I will take it as soon as possible !

Although there are and have been many foreign tourists in Valfréjus you will not find many people who speak an other language then French. The local people are very friendly and helpfull, so with a little effort this language-gap is never a problem.

Le chemin de fer de La Mure

by JLBG

Outside Grenoble, one easy place to visit is ''le chemin de fer de La Mure''. In the train station, you take a ticket to Saint-Georges-de-Commiers (about 15 km). There, you can take the privately run old train that runs on the railway that was used to transport coal from La Mure to Grenoble. It is very impressive.
Thirty km of railroad gripped to a steep mountain slope, 142 bridges, 18 tunnels, 122 bends reveal a breathtaking landscape for 100 minutes. This metric width railway began to run in 1889 after four years of titanic work.
to transport coal from La Mure to Saint-Georges-de-Commiers where it was loaded on full size wagons to reach Grenoble and further. The mines are now closed and the train runs only for tourists. In La Mure a photographic shows present 100 years of the mine train. In Saint-Georges-de-Commiers, a museum reminds how the miners had a hard work.
