Ideal Jobs

Ideal Jobs

Those ideal jobs are increasingly not in large metro areas. High rents, mind-numbing traffic, and competition for positions are driving workers to ex-urban and smaller cities. This migration is most prevalent in the already overcrowded cities of San Francisco, Austin, Boston, and New York, but is being felt everywhere. 44% of all job seekers located in San Francisco or San Jose are looking outside those metro areas for jobs. A massive 67% jump since 2012. via Medium

Correct. I work remotely and it’s a dream. Plus it saves a lot of money on commuting and paying high rent/mortgage payments.

However, it comes with its own issues. Luckily my wife works from home too so I’m not alone AND we use Slack to communicate.

When the NYC office opens, I’ll make it a point to pop in once a week.
