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

Bermuda is ultra religious. They have a 'holier than though' attitude and people will be surprised if you are a non-church goer. They are very intolerant especially if you are white or gay. For a christian island they are very bigotted and racist.

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

Mainly offshore insurance and the tourist industry.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

People seem intent on making money. Bermuda is a nice place to visit but to work here as a white expat, you will encounter a certain amount of racism and resentment.

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

Do not come. On paper the salary looks good but a loaf of bread is US $3 and a half decent place to live is US$ 3000 a month.

You have to be on a good package of 100K or more plus apartment thrown in to be OP here.
