As one of the largest cities in the world, Mexico City is packed with activities, sights, and culture to ensure you build a lifestyle as thriving as the "City of Palaces" itself. Throughout the year you'll have a front row seat to major festivals, including the world famous "day of the dead", where sugar skull decorations dominate and participants paint their faces in vibrant colors. Of course, you'll find a variety of international cuisine but make sure you sample some traditional street food too like pambazos, huaraches, and alambres. Expats will find job opportunities in the tertiary sector, and with the large number of multinational companies present in Mexico City, you may well find your stay to be career advancing. Other popular industries include electronics, pharmaceutical, transportation, banking, and of course tourism among many others. When working for multinational companies you'll find that English is usually spoken, but for tourist occupations a good knowledge of the Spanish language is needed.
