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

IMO people are pretty intolerant of gypsies, non-white races, and those that are not orthodox Christian. I've been scoffed at more times than I can remember when someone discovers I'm not Orthodox and don't follow their "rules".

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

Antibiotice is a huge presence in Iasi, producing pharmaceuticals. Theres also an increasing amount of American and western EU companies building factories or setting up shop in Iasi. Finding a job is not so much different than other places; keep your eyes open, make contacts and put yourself out there....however don't expect the higher salary you may be accustomed to.

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

A lot of people are focused on work, and construction/renovation of houses in and around the city.

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

Expect bureaucracy at every turn! Romanians love to make themselves feel important by holding their ink stamps and having you come back for something 5 times, mostly because they're just too lazy to get off their rears and do their jobs. It's never their fault, it's yours and you're disturbing them that you should even expect them to do something faster than 3 months time. Be prepared to have your patience pressed to its limits, and then some!
