Jamshedpur is a small industrial town with auto rickshaws being the only form of public transport. One will need a car if they decide to settle here. Also, it is not connected by airways. The nearest airport options are Ranchi (a 3-4 hour drive) or Kolkata (6-hour journey by train). It has one of the best MBA institutes in the country. The entire town is built around the biggest factory of Tata Steels, so corporate job options are limited to Tata, and real estate is expensive.
