I'm back on the market. The job market that is. I've been casually looking for a new job either in NY or IL, and the more I think about the kind of life I could have, I'm definitely leaning more towards focusing on the IL market, though I'm still actively looking here in NY as well. In IL I could have a car again, I could FINALLY get the dog I've always wanted, be closer to my ailing parents, have a rent that wasn't 60% of my monthly income, have space....it's all so tempting. When it comes down to it though, I'll have to go where the job is, so out go the resumes and cover letters and a hope for something better.
Wish me luck....I'm gonna need it.
