Moving to Jackson

Expats moving to Jackson will find a comprehensive project to revitalize the downtown area, which is creating some excellent new residential space. The city is served by Jackson-Evers International Airport and is crossed by three Interstate highways, the 20, 55 and 220. The Amtrak national passenger rail service also serves the city. The city has a vibrant cultural life and in addition to a huge variety of music venues and recording studios, it hosts the International Ballet Competition every four years. With so much going on, visiting InterNations is a great way to keep up with events and make the most of your new city. Expatriates moving to Jackson can also use the forums and discussion boards to connect with like-minded people and gain some valuable local insights.

Working in Jackson

Jackson plays host to a number of major industries, such as food processing, manufacturing and the production of electrical equipment. It also has a large financial services sector, with metal production being another major employer. Agriculture plays its part in the local economy too, with the surrounding farmland producing cotton, livestock, poultry and soybeans. With such a diverse economy, it is all too easy for the new expat in Jackson to miss opportunities. It is only sensible, therefore, to network with similar people at InterNations, where it is quite possible to make some valuable connections among the local expatriate community. InterNations’ in-house online publication, the Expat Magazine, complements the website with excellent advice for expatriate life in general.
