    When first moving to Washington, D.C., I didn't know many people outside of the office. InterNations has changed that with some exciting events.

Living in Cleveland

Cleveland is known as the forest city, because it was originally a sophisticated society amongst a heavily forested area. The most populated county in the state of Ohio, it was first founded in 1796. Due to its proximity to the Cuyahoga River, it quickly became an important goods manufacturing center, using the river to deliver the products made in the factories. However, expatriates living in Cleveland will not only find the city’s history interesting to discover. The internationally famous Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame is based in Cleveland, and is something to see, even if you're not necessarily a fan of rock music. Failing that, a trip to the old arcade should satisfy your architectural cravings. If you're considering life in Cleveland, whether it's for work or pleasure, it's worth looking into what InterNations can do to make your expat life in Cleveland even nicer.

Moving to Cleveland

If you have already made the decision that you're moving to Cleveland, you should be pleased that you're making the first positive step to a rewarding expatriate life. But moving isn't always as easy as it should be, with all sorts of hurdles possibly getting in the way. Sometimes you just need a helping hand, or a guiding voice, to ease you into life abroad and the growing community of expatriates on the InterNations website could be just what you need. There is also a publication by InterNations called the Expat Magazine. This collection of articles is written both by expats, who want to share their experiences to make other people's lives better, as well as the InterNations in-house staff who takes care to explain general information expatriates moving to Cleveland or any other foreign city might need.

Working in Cleveland

A foreign assignment isn't the only way you can make a living as an expatriate in Cleveland. There are many different options you can take for working in Cleveland, whether you want to make the brave decision to start your own business, or prefer to be self-employed. Obviously, there are positives and negatives concerning whatever option you choose, and the InterNations community is available to help you no matter what path you take. The Expat Magazine includes articles and pieces that are specifically written to aid you in working abroad. Some of the articles talk about managing finances, while others go in to detail about understanding cultural barriers in the workplace. Working in Cleveland might seem overwhelming at first, but on InterNations you can find and get in touch with expatriates from all over the world that have had similar experiences to your own, and are happy to share them with you.
