New York City has a lot of career opportunities so this is the perfect place for someone who’s looking to grow their career, just finished college or someone who wants to find their niche in any industry. The city has a wide variety of career choices and will be great for everyone especially the younger youth who aren’t sure which career path to take.

Modeling agencies, real estate agents, accounting firms, law firms, etc. These are some examples of the many career opportunities that are available in the city just to name a few.

TIP: There are a lot of internship opportunities for new graduates in New York.


Moving around in New York is best done using public transportation which is easily accessible, cheaper, and sufficient. Having a car and driving can take longer than it would if you were to use a bus or a train and the traffic tends to be a little too hectic. Using public transport is the better option. The train is what most people use because of its convenience and it has stops all over the city.

Plan your budget for the month and see which form of transportation best suits you and your needs. And make sure the type is convenient for you.


New York City is very rich in culture. There’s great diversity as there are people from all over the world, and that includes tourists. If you love variety, and diversity and love to taste foods from different cultures then New York City is the place for you.


Nightlife doesn’t just happen in Vegas and Miami, right? New York has great nightlife too. If you love partying, going out after work, or just on a weekday or weekend to unwind, this city is for you. There’s a moderate balance between work and social life which is ideal for anyone.

You can find clubs and lounges for different age groups so never think you’re too old to go out and have fun. New York accommodates everyone.

There are numerous theatre shows (Broadway), news studios, broadcasting studios, filming videos, etc. in New York City so you are more likely than not to see a celebrity while you work and live here. You may find yourself taking a walk and encountering a movie being filmed or the press broadcasting.

New York is a very popular city and everyone around the world loves to know the ins and outs of the city. If you live here, this is a great bonus for you.


As we said before, the city is full of diversity with people from all “walks of life”. You will find every background and culture you can think of because it is a tourist city and has a lot of international business establishments so people from different countries tend to join their respective companies in New York as it may be the main head office or as an exchange for a certain amount of time.

There are also so many opportunities in terms of modeling and social media so a lot of international influencers move to NYC for work. So if that's something you are into, go for it.


A great place to attend events, especially free events, whether it is work events or other events. A lot of times you’ll get an invite if you work in the industry that’s hosting the event. Friends may also invite you to events or someone may approach you while walking especially around Times Square with a free ticket to an event which is great.

A lot of events usually offer free food, drinks, and sometimes goody bags for the guests, so take advantage of this and mingle, network, and make friends.


You can never live in New York City and be bored! There’s always something to do or see. From broadway shows to bars, the zoo, museums, parks, rooftop restaurants, etc. It's great to explore the city you live in so you familiarise yourself and make friends. That's why moving to NYC is a good idea. You will never have nothing to do.


Who doesn’t want to have a great balance between social and work life? I know I want to. This is a dream for social life. New York is the best place to mingle and socialize with people.
