So there’s a possibility I may have a shot at a damn fine career opportunity. It’s still pretty early in the process, so it may not happen at all. The thing is that they’re in Los Angeles, CA (Venice), an area I’ve really had no interest in living.
I’m fine with relocating, but I’ve never really considered myself an L.A. kind of guy. I’m originally from the WI/MN areas and currently live in Kansas City (which I’ve never been married to). Anyway, my impression is that <broad generalization> the culture out there seems to value surface over substance </broad generalization>. I don’t really go in for the party scene or status seeking. Oh, and then there is the cost of living! We haven’t even begun negotiating salary yet, so I don’t know how much I’d have to spend, but YIKES!
So can any of you help manage my expectations if this relocation comes to pass?
