In May I graduate from college here in Vermont. I'll have my B.S. in Business Management and Technology. I have my eyes on Dallas, TX but living only 4ish hours from Boston, I would much prefer that. I have heard the cost of living is high in Boston (surrounding areas, too?). Hows the job market in Boston? I wouldn't mind a nice office job in the city, where I could eventually move up to a management spot. I am hanging on the thread of it being closer to home and visited Boston twice (but only to do the tourist thing). I really like it and reminds me of Europe (I have family in Germany and England, so that was pretty nice).

Job market sux, those downtown jobs are now paying what gas stations used too, depending on what you land you MAY be ok, but I'd go to TX if you could. I was watching a thing on MSNBC a couple weeks ago and TX and VA are the #1&2 places to be right now for business growth and job availability. (Which is good for me since I moved to VA over this kind of crap).
