Living in Eugene

Eugene, in Oregon, is sometimes referred to as 'the Emerald Valley', because of its incredible scenery with rolling hills, beautiful trees and mountains which can be seen in the distance. If you're thinking of living in Eugene, or you've already moved and you want to find a good way of getting a feel for the city, you can attend the annual Oregon Bach festival. Showcasing the amazing work of Johann Sebastian Bach, the festival takes place across various venues in Eugene and is a good way to learn about some of the cultural venues the city has to offer. If you are interested in modern and classic art, you can join in with the "first or last Friday Artwalk" - walk through the city and visit many of the art galleries that make Eugene proud to call itself a place to live and work that's rich in culture. If you want more information on living in Eugene, or the US in general, you can join InterNations and with a visit to our forums and discussion groups get some advice about living abroad from an expatriate community whose members can offer firsthand experience in this regard.

Moving to Eugene

Many people move to Eugene because of its stunning natural beauty, while others enjoy the recreational activities the diverse landscapes provide. There are places to take the bicycle on a long road trip, and perfect waters for rafting and kayaking. Moving to any new city, regardless of where it is in the world, can be a very daunting and stressful experience. But with the help of the continuously growing InterNations community, you don't have to go through the move completely alone. Whether you're an expat moving to Eugene in order to start a new job, or you are thinking about moving the whole family with you, there will be other expatriates on the InterNations platform whose experience and advice can help you make important decisions about your life as an expat in Eugene.

Working in Eugene

The largest employers in Eugene are the University of Oregon, the PeaceHealth Medical Group, and the Eugene School District. The two most important industries for Eugene are still wood manufacturing and vehicle manufacturing. There are also many jobs available in the city relating to commerce, retail and the local services. Eugene has a fantastic wide-spreading history of giving rise to big brands. Some of the brands that were established first in Eugene include Nike, the sportswear manufacturer, Taco Time, and Brorderbund Software. Expats working in Eugene might find it can be a struggle at first, especially if they don't have a good grasp of the local language. Our Expat Magazine offers handy tips, for example on breaking through the cultural barriers of working abroad as an expatriate, to help you with the transition.
