A former boss of mine who is still in the company just emailed me with an interesting suggestion. He is now located in upstate New York, and there’s an upcoming job opportunity in his group which he thinks I’d be suited for, so he wants me to put my name in the pipeline for it. The job would be in upstate New York and would involve a great deal of driving.
I live in Memphis, with which I am growing increasingly discontented. Because of that and because this would be a good career move even if it were here, I’m tempted by the opportunity. One thing that gives me pause, though, is the notion of living that far north. Apart from Memphis, the only place I have ever lived is the Philippines, so I have little experience with snow (Memphis gets about 2/3 of an inch of the white stuff every other year) and no experience with bitter winters. Can anybody give me a heads-up on living in such a place?
