Living in Fargo

The city of Fargo, North Dakota, accounts for nearly 16 per cent of the state's population. Although it is only a small city, with around 105,500 inhabitants, it's actually the agricultural, industrial and commercial center for that part of America. If you're considering living in Fargo, and you get the chance to explore before you arrive, you should take some time to acquaint yourself with the city and your surroundings. Fargo, or the Gateway to the West as some people affectionately call it, has an incredible aircraft museum simply waiting to be explored, and it can also offer the Fargo-Moorhead opera for anyone who wants to indulge their cultured side. If you are thinking of living in Fargo, you might want to gather some advice about living abroad as an expatriate first.

Moving to Fargo

Even though it's only a small city, Fargo offers a surprising range of cultural activities. Many people move to Fargo because of the three universities in the area, the old-style cinemas, and the small-city charm it has developed. Moving to a new home can, however, can cause quite a large amount of emotional and physical pressure. With the InterNations community you can ask other expats living in Fargo or other parts of the US, who have all experienced similar situations to yourself, for advice and help. Moving to Fargo can be made a lot easier when you have the backing on an international group of like-minded expatriates with whom you can network and socialize. You might, for example, want to start a discussion about the award-winning Coen Brothers film 'Fargo', which is set in the city, even if only the opening scene was shot actually on location.

Working in Fargo

Historically, Fargo has always heavily dependent on agriculture, and the city does still provide agricultural goods to the nearby population today. The economy today is based around food manufacturing, the technology of food processing, health care and higher education. Forbes magazine recently published a list of the best places to start a business in the United States, and Fargo was placed at number seven in the small cities list. The top employers are Sanford Health, the North Dakota State University and Fargo Public Schools. If you're thinking of working in Fargo, it might be a good idea to get some information about expatriate working life before you set off. Our Expat Magazine has countless articles about working abroad, with generic information about working permits, bank accounts and international taxation.
