I have been reading the threads for about a month and I finally decided to say hello. There is one thing I's like to ask: Is there another forum on Yahoo!? I keep reading references to that site.

Hi Shermike. Welcome to VJ.

I see your local office is Hartford. Where in CT are you?

There is a yahoo site that we use mainly to post pictures and introduce new members. Most of the activity goes on in the yardie thread pinned above. Ask Ms. Squitto for an invite to the yahoo site.

I live in CT and I am beginning to hate the winters here. I used to like it but now that I have to commute a longer distance to work I dream of relocating to state with moderate winters. And it is sooo expensive to live here. But I guess everything is relative; the salaries generally tend to be higher.

That's not quite true. My friend recently moved down and she makes the same as she was here. In fact, we are in the same line of work (Financial Analyst) and most of the jobs I have applied for so far is for the same amount or more. I can't wait to find a job! I like my job here but the weather and the cost of living is way too high.

I guess it depends on your line of work. I have a few relatives and friends that relocated there and all are paid less in their profession in metro Atlanta than they were here (teachers and healthcare); except for the two that were able to take their salaries with them. One is a manager in Marietta(insurance) and she said that her employees in Atlanta are paid less than her employees in CT. My new manager is from Lawrenceville and she said that she makes a lot more here than she had in Georgia.

I think a lot depends on where you're working too. The gold coast in CT (Stamford, Norwalk, Fairfield Co. etc) employers tend to pay a lot more but look at the housing costs there :wacko:

Best wishes on your job search.

Thanks a lot!

When I moved here 3 years I got a $15K raise...for no other reason but the move. Presently, I am up a lot more than that and I still cannot afford to buy a house! I hope I get a job soon
