bonjour alex, et bienvenue à silicon valley!

living around here will have a wide range of monthly costs...
typically your rent should be within EUR1000-2000 which can be reduced
if you get roommates and/or live in a house with others.

best places to find a job are http://monster.com - http://dice.com
-http://sfbay.craigslist.org ... if you are interested in applying to
Google (yes we're hiring), as with the rest of you, just check out
http://google.com/jobs and send me your CV/resume and top 3 desired
positions you found *including* their full URLs. be aware that the
interview process is brutal and unforgiving but pleasant other than
that as it has shown some improvement from the past. :-)

bonne chance!
