Home to one of the most diverse populations in the US, Los Angeles brims with opportunities and resources to help new residents settle in when compared to other major cities in the USA. The warmth of the city cascades from its cultural melting pot and the year-round sunny weather. The cityscape is quite dynamic, featuring breathtaking mountain ranges, golden beach fronts, green areas and parks, high-rise buildings, and bustling metro areas. 

The best way to blend in fast with Los Angeles culture and get the better of nostalgia is to create a space in your new life for a microcosm of life in your previous home with familiar sights and sounds. Life as a new resident gets easier when you know when to speak your native language and when to stick to L.A lingo, when to dress in naive clothes and when to slap on a nice T-shirt with a face cap, when to go out and when to steer clear from the roads. Here are a few hacks to stay ahead of the learning curve as a new resident in Los Angeles.

Like every other resident, students in Los Angeles cannot escape the glitz, cinema, and high living costs that characterise the city. However, there's more to life in L.A as a student than that. Read on to find out all you can expect from life in L.A as an international student.

Making friends won't make all your problems go away, but it can help provide the fortitude, courage, and goodwill you need to pursue a fulfilling life in Los Angeles. As one of the greatest multicultural hubs in the world, LA is filled with residents who are predisposed to mixing with people with different backgrounds and histories.

Professional networking in Los Angeles helps open doors of opportunity for growth and career advancement. However, there are better ways to do it right to get the right results. Your resume and background might be a great resource to rely on when networking, but your networking etiquette can be just as decisive.
