Location: Rhode Island is an excellent area to put down roots as you build your career professionally while enjoying a great work-life integration. The region sits on the Coast of the Atlantic Ocean which is a significant draw for discovering our many beaches such as Newport, Block Island, Narragansett, Westerly, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. The region is also fortunate enough to have one of the best culinary universities in the country, Johnson & Wales, which translates into top-notch and nationally ranked restaurants. Providence Performing Arts Center is the perfect venue for Broadway shows and concerts. The Dunkin' Donuts Center features excellent college basketball, college hockey, auto shows, home shows, COMICON, wine and beer festivals, and A-list performing artists. Finally, the college scene is extremely impressive with Brown University, Providence College, and the Rhode Island School of Design to name a few. Nestled right in the middle of the I-95 corridor without the daily major metropolitan traffic, Boston is only a 45-minute drive/Amtrak Ride and NYC is a 3-hour drive/Amtrak ride.
