In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The size of Adelaide can be a pro or con, based on your personal preference. It's a small city which operates more like a large town and while it is diverse, it can be a bit insular. It takes patience to break through and settle in.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

http://www.seek.com.au is the best web site for job hunters. There are many recruitment agencies, although finding the initial job can be difficult if you are not a native speaker of English. Preparation is key.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

There is always something going on here, no matter the time of year. Coming to Adelaide is an adjustment just like moving anywhere else would be, but there are plenty of opportunities to meet people and do things.
