Living in Chandler

The Arizona city of Chandler is a classic American success story. It was founded just over a hundred years ago, apparently by the first vet in Arizona, and survived the Great Depression in better shape than many neighboring cities. The number of both businesses and people living in Chandler has grown rapidly since the 1990s thanks to a burgeoning computing and technology sector – you might hear the city referred to as the High-Tech Oasis of the Silicon Desert. It isn't all about industry or rapid growth, though – expats in Chandler can get a taste of 1920s America in the historic Downtown Chandler Center for the Arts or visit Tumbleweed Park for a bit of fresh air. The quality of life in Chandler is high, with the city named America's ninth best run by 24/7 Wall Street. Expatriates living in Chandler will enjoy a buzzing business scene, great local amenities and a great standard of living as well.

Moving to Chandler

As with most American cities, moving to Chandler should be easily organized. Due to the recent exponential growth of the city as a residential and business center, though, local infrastructure hasn't yet caught up and the main way into Chandler is by freeway. Chandler Municipal Airport offers private flights but no commercial flights as yet. Expats moving to Chandler can also get information on expatriation from the Expat Magazine, our collection of articles and information on aspects of international life such as expat finance, insurance and life abroad. There is also plenty to browse on our website, including content from other InterNations members, all there to help expatriates moving to Chandler settle in. Overall, though, the city is welcoming and business is thriving, so you should adapt to life as an expatriate in Chandler fairly easily.

Working in Chandler

As an expat, you'll quickly see that life in Chandler is thriving. The city is one of the wealthiest and best educated in the United States, with very low crime rates, a AAA credit rating and a population that has grown from around 30,000 in the 1980s to an astonishing 240,000 today. With such a positive outlook, life in Chandler is good and a number of new cafés, restaurants and entertainment venues are testament to this, as is the award-winning new City Hall. Expatriates living in Chandler often want to get in touch with the local international network, of course, and with such quick growth, you’ll find plenty of other global minds. The easiest way to get in touch with other expats is through InterNations' forums , discussion groups, or private communications, which are ideal for organizing meet-ups or simply getting information and networking. Expatriates in Chandler are not hard to find, considering how fast the city has grown – and considering how much of the community consists of new arrivals, finding an international network should be about as hard as walking down the street.
