Ha! That would be awesome, but I'd be super intimidated by the students all the time since I only ever made it to an associate's degree, despite over 20 years in IT.

Also, moving from TX to MA would be...weird.

As hard as it would be to leave Houston, to leave Texas, if I needed to for work, I could... but missing the food would kill me. :lol:

Too true. We've gone up to see my brother-in-law in Minnesota a couple of times. It was difficult finding good food, even with Rainsmercy making suggestions at the Mall of America and my BiL having lived there for three years. Boston must have a lot of good seafood, I'd think, but my wife hates seafood so I never get to eat it.

Like I always say, it's cruel to eat animals who can swim.

I was born in SoCal, grew up in the Southwest, after we moved to Minnesota, we would always go to Arizona/New Mexico to visit my grandparents. Do you know how hard it is to find good Tamales/Mexican/Tex Mex food up here in the land where Ketchup is spicy? Darn near impossible. Though we did get a pretty awesome place for tamales a couple years ago finally, its even been on Diners, Drive ins and Dives.

Ironically, I actually DID move from TX (Austin) to MA. It's... yeah, I miss the food, though I have found two nearby passable places and one not-so-nearby good Tex-Mex place, and I've learned to cook it myself. Honestly, right now, I'm just about to murder someone due to this endless winter (it's currently snowing... again).
Yes to the seafood, though I never eat it either, and I end up eating a lot of Indian food, that stuff is legit here.

I grew up in Central California and Southern Arizona and still live in Southern Arizona. My wife's family is all in Michigan and we are going to move there in a couple of years.

You have just given voice to my biggest fear.

Growing up in the Chicago area, I've always been able to find good Mexican food. Living in San Diego now, it's generally more consistently good, but Midwestern Mexican food can be good, especially if there is a fairly large Mexican population.

In my travels across rural Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma, Mexican food was hit or miss. Generally when it's owned and operated by a local Mexican-American family, it's fine to great. Otherwise it's generally awful.

Yeah I've found great local Mexican food in Louisville, Florida and North Carolina now.

Wife and I have found a new place each time we moved and been weekly regulars at 3 different restaurants for 10+ years now. It's nice when someone knows your name and order.

Where is good in San Diego? The only place I like is Old Town Mexican Cafe, which has amazing corn tortillas.

My wife is hispanic, so she is extra picky about her Tex/Mex and Mex/Mex restaurants. Don't get her started on the places we tried in Georgia.

There are some great spots in Chicago, which has a long history of Mexican immigration.
The National Museum of Mexican Art is Pilsen is worth a look, and if you get hungry check out Carnitas Uruapan

But yeah most Mexican food here ain't as good. The north is the land spice forgot (except for the Korean and Indian food which is pretty good here).

My company is hiring again, this time two System Administrators, as well as an Overnight Client Support Associate

We're located in Waltham, Mass but the positions are pretty much expected to be telecommute from anywhere in Canada or the US, which the exclusion of NY, NJ, TX and WA. We do have a couple of people from New York who live close enough to the MA border that they could commute to office space we rent in MA somewhere near the border (I forget the exact location).

It turns out we have an applicant referral thing in place, so I get a small bit of money if someone I refer is hired. (I wasn't aware of this previously, so didn't mention it in older posts). If you want to mention my name in the application process, PM me here and I can give that to you.

I had a slow August and I am actively on the hunt for gigs. Here is my company page. I do public speaking coaching primarily, but our narrative and storytelling workshops have had some pretty spectacular results for corporate clients. Hit me up via PM or through the website if you are interested, and please share the info with people in your firm. We've worked with a bunch of marketing and sales departments, and any department could benefit from my public speaking coaching services as public speaking is something everyone hates to do but has to at some point. Thanks everyone!

Gameloft Toronto is looking for a Product Marketing Manager. My sister works there, so I have an "in" if I can help out.

I think you linked the Paris job Eleima.

Nope, it’s the Toronto job opportunity alright. It’s showing up in French now, which is weird, I copied the link in English this morning. Not sure what's going on, maybe I got my wires crossed, but it's 100% a job offer in Toronto. If need be, don't hesitate to ask for more info.

I think this is the Toronto position.

Looking for a senior copywriter in the Seattle area.

Must have a solid understanding of the technology industry and drive to stay fresh on outlooks and trends in tech’s intersection with healthcare, social-good and consumer sectors.

I have friends looking for an Unreal Engine developer to do VR work. Office is in Portland Maine, a wonderful city for living, food and beer. I'll get the job details if there is any interest.

Anyone interested in being a software engineer for a NASA contractor? Looking for 10 years of experience but the position has been open too long so they will take people with less experience. Looks to be mostly C/C++ programming.

I have 12 years under my belt as a Records clerk, 8 of them as a supervisor. I spend an extra year in college to graduate with a degree in History and a minor in Political Science and recently completed the Paralegal Certification program at Loyola. Can please come work at NASA?

Probably... Maybe not as a programmer though...

We are starved for bodies here and more jobs show up daily. If you're serious PM me and I'll at least send you the link for our currently open positions.
