Living in Boise

Boise, the city of trees as it's known to some, is a rewarding and vibrant place to live. The Idaho State Capital Building in Boise is unlike anything else you've seen, and it's worth taking the time out to view it as the sun goes down. The large town square mall has everything you need to set up a new life in the area and more, letting you know how it feels to indulge once in a while. Living in Boise as an expatriate can be exciting and rewarding, but you might need some help settling in to life in Boise at first. The advice on the InterNations website can help anybody in a similar situation, giving an expatriate somewhere to go if they need advice or guidance before they start living as an expat in Boise.

Moving to Boise

Moving within a country is a notoriously stressful experience; increase that stress-level by a few factors and you have a good indication of what moving abroad might feel like. If you're moving with your family, you might be looking for a helping hand to understand what paperwork might be involved, what the area is like that you're moving to, or what sort of support networks are available to you - both financially and emotionally. The InterNations website has all sorts of resources available to help with questions such as these. The Expat Magazine, for example, has a variety of articles that cover topics such as cross-cultural communication, how to break down cultural boundaries, how to greet others and what sorts of gestures to stay away from, and how to make key preparations before moving to Boise to live as an expatriate.

Working in Boise

However, there is more to expat life than getting settled in, making sure the family is comfortable in the new home, and making a few friends through the extensive InterNations community. You will obviously also have to track down a job to pay the bills. This can be a tricky experience, especially if you're new to the country and you've never experienced working in Boise before. If you haven't been sent by an employer specifically to start working in Boise, you won't have a very good idea of where to get started. The members-only resources that are available on InterNations help to give some idea of where to get started. There are more than 1,000 topics that are currently being posted and discussed on the InterNations forum threads and discussion groups, each of which relate to a unique and specific situation - there is something to help, no matter what the problem. Thousands of like-minded expatriates leave posts in the forums, and they're available for you to browse and absorb. If there isn't a forum thread about your situation, then you can simply start a new one, or have a one-on-one chat with another expatriate that has had a similar work-related experience to you.
