No problem and you can click on the city, which will show the average annual pay for industries/positions in that area.

Will you have a car or will you be relying solely on public transit?
I've never had a DL, and I do rely on public transportation (until I'm comfortable with driving).

In that case, I'd look into those metros with a solid public transportation system.

Yeah, Texas and pretty much all of the South is off the table if public transit is a priority (and it sounds like it is one).

Pittsburgh, Philly, DC, and parts of Upstate NY should be on the short list.
