THIS. I'm trying to hire, and a few resumes had some experience, but HR said they didn't meet minimum quals so I couldn't even talk to the candidate

Although, right now I basically need someone who can fog a mirror repeatedly. . .

Good luck!

Not quite the same, but last year I took in a coop student, but it was her experience that made me interested, not the fact that she was enrolled in college. Just happened to be where I found her.

This Friday I'm meeting with her and may offer her a full time job because I know she can do what I need done. Her college degree means nothing to me. So there are employers out there who will give you a chance too.

Might take a little cold calling if you can find the info if you find HR isn't giving you a chance to get in the door though.

Networking is the key. I worked in Real Estate previously, built a strong relationship with one of my clients. He offered me an interview at his company -- the company I am currently at, and the rest is history.

It won't be easy, but I am up for the challenge.

I grew up in NYC and my father still lives there. It would be nice to be close to him, as moving back has been a dream of mine for a while. However, this opens up a whole new world of problems since I am 22, college dropout, and managed to get into a 6 figure/year job here in Florida... Moving to New York without a degree of my own, it may be extremely difficult to find a job comparable to what I am making now. I have done it once before, I welcome the challenge, and I look forward to whats to come.

well thats good news...

Create an account on Indeed, create a resume and upload it . You will receive jobs offers. Only negative is that job recruiting agencies will contact you and sometimes have no clue what your job description is lol

Keep the current job and commute to see her on the weekends for 6 months, if possible. There are great direct flights between FL and NYC.

Keep yourself as stable as possible as she adjusts. I don't believe in following anyone until everything is settled, i.e., marriage. Just my .02. No matter what decision you make, I wish you and your intended the best of success.

Even though I said you should be able to find something in NYC I wholeheartedly agree with this decision BUT prior experience dictates me to say long distance never works bc you can only do so much through FaceTime


Let's be realistic, even if you were married things can change and I don't think you'd be any better off if the worst happens and you're left by yourself in a completely new city...

I tried long distance when I first moved to FL. I was with the girl for 3 years prior to my move, and we broke up just a few months after. I am certainly not willing to risk my relationship for my job; I did that once and learned my lesson.

Besides, I wouldn't want to do the commute. I would rather take a loss in pay, and be there with her and my family, then continue at this job and have to stress about my relationship.

I agree. Plus I don't think she would be very happy to have to navigate NYC by herself, especially coming from a foreign country. Since I know NYC well, she would want me by her side.

UPDATE:

Man, I must have some serious karma points. She told me today that she was just accepted into a local school. She didn't tell me she applied, as she didn't want to get my hopes up about staying until she knew. Well, she was accepted into an MFA program about 30 mins from our house!

While the school is not quite as good as the one in NYC, it gives us the option to stay here for my job, and allows her to stay in the country.

We have some serious decisions to make over the next few weeks/months, but last week I was concerned we had no options, now we have multiple -- a truly fantastic turn of events.

It's the same, I can't blame my actions on the thread. I do wish I didn't listen to you guys on this incident though won't lie It was up to me to make the conscious decision of ghost/not ghost, and I clearly made the wrong decision but it wouldn't be right of me to blame it on you guys.

I don't honestly remember if you said that I should ghost her or not, but all I'm saying is I shouldn't have listened to those who said I shouldn't...

Would have been way less painless for all involved because now I'm going to be that asshole that asks for more a week before but now isn't feeling it...

Besides, there's so many hot girls out there!!!!!! It's too early to settle down
