Moving to Madison

Moving to Madison is an exciting experience and as you read up on the city you will no doubt have pictures in your mind of strolling past the impressive Wisconsin State Capitol Building or family days out at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens. However, we understand that such a transition can also be a daunting experience and that is why InterNations has always focused on helping expats with the initial relocation. As such, our Expat Magazine contains a wealth of relevant information. Here you can find a variety of detailed articles on all of the most important aspects of life as an expatriate which will help as you make the move to Madison. Furthermore, by putting you in direct contact with our global network of expats, our platform gives you access to a whole community that is ready and waiting to help you out in case you are struggling with life in Madison.

Working in Madison

Home to the famous University of Wisconsin-Madison, employment in “The Mad City” was traditionally dominated by the University and the State Government. However, recent times have seen booms in the consumer services and high tech industries meaning that Madison now has a thriving and varied economy. Regardless of what field you end up in while working in Madison, the ability to network successfully is important for any expat in Madison or elsewhere and we can provide you with the means to do so. The InterNations platform not only puts you in touch with our community of global minds but allows you to develop deep connections with other expats living in Madison and across the world via our forums, discussion groups and private correspondence with other members. Our online resources, such as member written articles and our Expat Magazine, complement this by providing you with a great source of relevant information at the click of a button. Join us and let InterNations help you to fulfil your career potential.
