Help!! I currently live in Freehold, NJ and commute to New York City M-F for work. After 5 years, I've come to the conclusion, that I'd prefer to work in Jersey than in NY. Are there any fashion, entertainment, or beauty/cosmetic companies in NJ? I am having such a hard time finding out this information. I love the company I work for now (but hate my job there), but the commuting is making my life miserable and I don't want to move to NY or North Jersey. If anyone can help a girl out, I'd appreciate it.

I'm not going to do all your homework for you but check in North Bergen, Secaucus, Lyndhurst and Wayne. There are multiple retailers/entertainment companies in these towns. Not too sure about beauty companies.

You mean corporate offices, not retail stores right?

Good point.

I know that Loreal, Procter & Gamble and other major beauty/cosmetic companies have offices in NJ, but it depends what division you are in. The NJ sites tend to focus on R&D, Accounting and Warehousing/Distribution.

Definitely corporate, I would hope you don't need help finding retail locations in NJ the land of BUY! BUY! BUY!!

As PP noted most NJ corp locations are for operational functions such as finance, logistics, IT, customer service. Design, marketing, merchandising etc. is usually kept in NYC.

What type of job are you looking for?

Well right now I work for HBO in their Finance/Cash & Rev Ops dept. I actually deal more with HBO/Cinemax subscriber data than I do with money/payments. I'm willing to stay in this field/ type of work. I just want to be in a (good/ secure) company a little closer to home.
