Advertisements

- Relatively relaxed and laid back (not super crowded or stressful)
- Good job opportunities to work in Marketing or Advertising
- Not too hot / humid and doesn't rain all the time (four seasons would be ideal but not a deal breaker)
- An educated populace
- Has a certain level of excitement / vibrancy (not a city that doesn't sleep but a city that has entertainment options beyond going to dinner and a movie)
- Fairly safe and clean

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'd say San Diego or San Jose, but not sure how marketing/ advertising is here. I'd say probably not good.

Maybe Denver or Minneapolis?

Portland and Seattle would be out because of the rain. San Francisco/San Jose might work though.

You might not think it's a viable option but would suggest Salt Lake City, particularly if you've never been and are operating on stereotypes. It pretty much fits your criteria.

You could come up here, but I'm not sure if the weather would be an issue.

Well, he's looking for "4 seasons" so Minneapolis and Denver would be viable options, some of the others not so much. Would Madison, WI be too small? If not, it fits your crime/clean/laid back points better than any of the above, and it's a very educated populace, since it's much more of a college town than the other options listed.

Honestly I think most all of the options listed previously don't fit your criteria.

+ San Francisco, San Diego, and San Jose don't have four seasons.

+ Salt Lake City most likely does not have many entertainment options beyond dinner and a movie, unless we are talking about outdoor recreation and not nightlife.

+ Denver and Minneapolis.... probably. The best of the bunch.



In addition to those, take a look at Cincinnati. Why?

Cincinnati is a marketing powerhouse. P&G, Macy's, Kroger, dunnhumbyUSA, Luxottica, KAO brands, E.W. Scripps are all companies which hire a ton of marketing people. That doesn't even include other major operations in the metro which require marketing people like Toyota's North American HQ, GE Aviation, etc. And Cincy meets all of your criteria well.

Most likely you've never visited and are operating off of an old stereotype....

If you are willing to consider it, here's some info: Marketing jobs in Rochester, NY - Indeed Mobile

Advertising jobs in Rochester, NY - Indeed Mobile

Marketing jobs in Albany, NY - Indeed Mobile

Advertising jobs in Albany, NY - Indeed Mobile

Marketing jobs in Ithaca, NY - Indeed Mobile

I mention these areas, as Albany and Rochester are 20th and 22nd out of the top 100 metros in educational attainment: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...reas.html?_r=0 and Ithaca is second behind Boulder for all metros: The 10 Most Educated Metropolitan Areas in America - Yahoo! Voices - voices.yahoo.com

All have enough nightlife ranging from shows, sports, the arts to a dinner and a movie. All have four seasons and nice urban areas with things going on within each metro. You could probably find these things in a couple of other areas up here, but I think these 3 fit the criteria the best. Here are some neighborhoods that come to mind: Center Square Neighborhood In Albany NY - Downtown Albany Community Near Lark Street
Lark Street BID :: Welcome

Park Avenue | Rochester NY | Restaurant | Boutique | Salon | Coffe Shop | Deli | Pub

Home > Downtown Ithaca Alliance
Downtown Ithaca NY - YouTube
The Future of Downtown Ithaca - YouTube

As for other potential areas that may work, places like Omaha, Madison WI and Columbus OH come to mind.
