    Default New job potentials!

    Okay so I'm at the breaking point with my job. I'm sick of coming home crying everyday. I'm sick of having ZERO benefits. I'm sick of it all. I'm working way too hard for someone who treats me like crap (and I think is a sexist). I've been applying to jobs all over (even Coach...but then I heard from a friend that it isn't a great atmosphere).

    Last weekend I applied for a design job for Nike. Well they called me back this week and I have a whole thing set up with them to send my portfolio and meet with them face-to-face in Portland!!

    I'm stoked. So anyone know anything about Portland?

    That sounds wonderful. I thought you wanted NYC though.

    Cool Re: New job potentials!

    Good for you! Portland is supposed to be a progressive city with a good-size population of foward-thinking young people (just google it and you'll get tons of info). It's supposed to be pretty cool, but, like MrsJones said, it ain't New York--though it might be better for you than NYC. You'll never know until you try. I would go to the interview and do all I could to get an offer, whether I sure or not that's what I want. If I got the offer, then, only then, I would go into deciding mode. Good luck in Portland!

    Susie, I'm sorry to hear your not doing so well at your new job.

    Portland is a beautiful city.. I love the architecture.. it's really design-ey. When you go there you will see what I'm talking about.

    Good luck on your decision

    woot! thanks girls.
    yes it's no NYC but after thinking about it - NYC would be too easy for me to fall back to. i'm still at a point in my life where i need to try other things. i know i'll end up in NYC at some point, but i hear so much awesome stuff about Portland that it's worth a try!!

    i don't know much about portland, but i was reading an article the other day about how nyc is the worst place for young people to build careers because of the cost of expenses to live in the city. i adore nyc though. best of luck with your new job and location. everything will work out in the end no matter where you end up and like you said you can always fall back to ny.

    ya vuittongirl, i do agree that nyc is pretty tough because whatever income you make, you end up spending to live. i think portland is a good start for me because the pay is really great and the living expenses are so low! i want to be able to stash away money into my savings and then go to nyc. my main thing was - since my family is in nyc - i'm not worried about going totally broke bc they would always help me out if i was in a really awful situation.
