What's the job situation like in Boston? Is it easy to find an OK job to pay rent? Well I know nothing's easy but with some time I meant. I know rents are sky high in Boston so that must be a good thing. For someone with a college degree and some experience in sales and insurance would I be able to find something if I work with a recruiter or head hunter? I'm pretty open to whatever careers are avaiaible but it's a little overwhelming looking on Indeed and LinkedIn so if anyone has any leads or would recommend an agency please feel free to comment thank you! I live about 4 hours away from Boston.

Very uncritical post. Think.

Rising prices is a boom? Why? Then Venezuela should be in great shape, right?

I mean seriously.

Venezuela is a completely different situation. There is high demand in Boston.

Ah, high prices are "different" when not here, got it.

Do you know what causes prices to rise?

Back to the point, generally, the job market is good in Boston. I'd suggest trying to get a job first. If you're only 4 hours away, you should be able to get here for interviews, etc -- that is, it's close enough that you should be able to do a job search from where you are. If you have friends or family here who would let you stay here for a week or two while you do a lot of interviews or networking activities, that would be great. If you don't maybe come to town and find an air b&b for a few days or a week at a time to get a mix of time here and time at home while you search for a job.
