Agreed. Unfortunately a degree in Communications with a minor in Film isn't in itself very marketable. Moving to a place where UCF is unknown makes it worse.

If OP wants to be in the film/TV industry then Boise or DC may not be the best fit, unless he's happy being a full-time barista at Starbucks while pursuing career opportunities.

I'd recommend the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco is an all around great town, but if you're not into the big city there are plenty of other nice places nearby. The only downside is the cost of living, but you're going out there with a degree so I think you'll be fine.

A degree in Communications doesn't limit one to just TV/Film. Advertising, Technical Writing, Governmental work (Legislative Assistant or Program Coordinator for instance) and of course many facets of Public Relations are all viable options along with many others. It's probably the most versatile degree available if one isn't deadset on a certain occupation.

I know it's little close to where your from but have you considered Providence. It's fairly affordable compared to Boston but close enough to jump the train into the city and the job market is fairly good. Brown is just outside downtown or you can head into Cambridge for your intellectual stimulation. There are some really nice communities between Providence and Boston such as Attleboro, Pawtucket, Canton that are right along the commuter line but nice communities with easy access to both PVD and BOS. I know it might be a little too close for comfort but at least it's something familiar.

Hi there,

I have considered Providence and Boston...the thing is..New England is a very small place...people are very cliquish and reserved which can be mistaken for snobbery at times. I'm not sure what Boston's industry is like...I grew up in small towns where everyone kind of knew everyone else.

The New England mentality is tricky to deal with which is why I would like to stick with the West Coast or parts of New York.

Again, I do like Boston..but not too sure if that's where I would like to settle. But you're right, it is familiar to me and I truly do miss New England a LOT.
