Succeed in Lewis County

“While I pursued my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I had the opportunity to participate in relevant, resume-boosting internships, while living at home. These experiences allowed me to save and make money (two of a college student's favorite things), but more importantly, exposed me to local employment opportunities that I didn't know existed."

Working Remotely in Lewis County

“I originally moved to Lowville because this is where my husband grew up. I was planning to find a job here, but ended up getting a job working remotely for the same company I worked for in Rhode Island. We love the community and there are endless opportunities for adventure. Snowshoeing, hiking, hunting, and walking our two dogs are all things we like to do together to spend quality time, and Lewis County is the perfect place to enjoy them!"
