Charlotte, NC – Charlotte has the lowest cost of living for the east ($774 median rent monthly) and a great hub for those in the banking and financial field. Unlike Omaha however, the unemployment rate is high (10.1%) because of jobs that are skewed towards high-skilled workers in banking and IT. But, the economy has not recovered fully, as unemployment is 9.2%. San Francisco, CA – For those in tech, San Francisco is the place for you.

Finance and Career Tips from Someone Who’s Been There

Ms. Career Girl

I’m the Community Outreach and Customer Support Manager at ReadyForZero , an awesome San Francisco startup that empowers people to get out of debt faster, on their own. I ended up taking a job as a bank teller just so I could get out of my college waitressing job. I moved to New York, landed a job in less than two weeks…and on the first day of my new job the economy as we knew it tanked. Who knows if I even would have had the guts to move in a down economy.

How I Left Corporate America at 26 to do What I Love

Ms. Career Girl

I got a finance degree because I wanted to have “job security, even in a bad economy,&# I felt I needed a degree which gave me “a trade,&# and I wanted to “always be able to support myself and my family.&# Not sure why I felt Finance was the only way to achieve these things, but regardless, that was the lame advice floating all around me and I took it as truth. I’ve been fantasizing about the day I’d get to write this post for a long time.

Guerrilla Job Hunting

After a ‘frosty’ reception here’s what Heald College’s career coaches really thought of us in San Francisco.

Yesterday Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters surpassed the 1 million mark.

Illegal Discrimination in Tech? Hardly

Evil HR Lady

Which explains why you see those middle aged men who are bald on top but have skinny gray ponytails and who are wearing socks with their birkenstocks at the San Francisco airport (and who a friend, who is a VP at Sun, told me are rich, rich, rich). Anybody that's done time in i-Banking or as a doc or a legal eagle knows that seemingly rational people will (with straight faces) talk about "work/life balance" at the 80 hour per week level.

How to make yourself more likable | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

Steak can't touch a well made stew for flavour (and economy as a bonus), but then the pursuit of the skills to make a really good stew is a lifelong struggle easily on a par with a Zen monk's search for enlightenment. Like, my husband got hit with a bunch of bank fees that he didn't deserve, and he was pissed. Is this your first time here?

Do you overemphasize happiness? | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

Penelope Trunk

His book, Create Your Own Economy , is about how the information flow of the Internet allows us to manage our careers differently than before. For example, people who are focused on information (infovores, as Tyler calls them) but not on face-to-face social interaction can flourish in an information economy. I am extremely happy when I am in New York or San Diego or San Francisco. Is this your first time here?
