even cool areas like somerville or cambridge or brookline aren't as good as the better areas of brooklyn or jc/hoboken. rentals in the seaport district are just as stupidly expensive ($3-4k/month) as manhattan without the unlimited job market to justify it. there are lots boston-ites there. there are drawbacks.

BOSTONóBoston residents once again hustled and bustled their way into the nationís hearts this week as they continued playing their adorable little game of ďBig City,Ē a live-action role-playing adventure in which Bostonians buzz about their daily routines in a delightful hubbub of excitement as if they lived in a major American metropolis.

three years of living in boston nearly drove me to suicide just from having to deal with bostonians every day. iím not exaggerating or joking. donít move to boston.

although people from outside the united states and people who move with significant others seem to have a much better time of it for some reason.

got an offer :toot: already at dece 6 figgies in nyc. this is +15% plus another 10-15% annual bonus on top. it's a solid offer for the position, not great. there's little doubt that it's much less of a shitshow organization than current employer.

only problem, it's in boston. that fills me with massive anxiety. i have until next week to decide if we're moving.

guessing people from outside the US just assume that's how Americans are and are just happy their assumptions were justified the whole time

Boston's cool and some neighborhoods are great. The big dig is also worth showing off to out of towners when you're walking on the greenway, even though it draws a lot of haters.

Name of the company they're recruiting for, for sure. If they're playing footsie with you about it they fear you going to the company directly and (therefore) don't trust you or consider you an actual grown-up professional.

if your question is "how do i talk to recruiters without sounding like a thirsty moron" the answer is that even the best ones are far thirstier and stupider then you, there's basically no way to gently caress it up other than dropping a whole bunch of racial slurs into your response or something. you can verbally abuse them in emails and they'll still respond positively and ask when you're free to chat.

if it's "how do i tell if they're worth a drat" just make sure they'll name the company early (preferably they've volunteered it) and they've actually read your linkedin or whatever
