As some of you know, I just graduated from college at the end of January. (We were on a weird schedule.) As of yet, I have not found my "career" job, and have been working two part-time jobs to pay the bills. One of my former teachers emailed me today about a potential job opportunity that would offer excellent benefits, pretty decent pay, and lots of potential as far as advancement goes. The only downside? I'm pretty sure it's in Pasadena. The engineering firm in question has done a lot of big projects, and the fact that they are looking for people in my field of expertise (architectural and environmental acoustics) means that this is an opporunity that is pretty lucrative for me. Is it worth it, however, to move across the country, away from my family, friends, and the girl I might marry? Please note that I have not even called about the job yet. The opening might even be in one of the numerous other offices they have around the country. I'm just wondering what experiences other people have had in similar situations.
