Thanks again!!
I mentioned both because the healthcare sector is one of the industries that is doing pretty good across Upstate NY. Actually, the Glens Falls metropolitan area has more people than the Ithaca population(130,000 versus 100,000). Clinton County, where Plattsburgh is located, has about 18,000 people less than Tompkins County, where Ithaca is located. So, there isn't too much difference in terms of population.

Here are some jobs from the hospitals in those areas: https://careers-cvph.icims.com/jobs/...hPositionType=

Here's another hospital in between both cities in Ticonderoga: Welcome to Inter-Lakes Health.

Welcome to Inter-Lakes Health.

If you want a bigger area, there are quite a few hospitals in the Albany-Schenectady-Troy area. You can look at areas west like say Utica-Rome, Syracuse or some smaller areas/communities in between Montreal and Long Island. With that said, I'd really look at hospitals in communities along the I-87 corridor.

Here are a couple of other hospitals: Elizabethtown Community Hospital

and another hospital not too far from Montreal: Alice Hyde Medical Center - Employment

Thank you so much, you have given me lots of information, makes it a little easier, many nights I wake up so anxious because, even though I read and ask, the not knowing the places and having the certainty of finding jobs, is scary, thank you again, I will look into all these links and take notes.

Hope you don;t mind if a keep asking questions

Hello Everyone!

I was browsing through the internet and found this website in which I think is very helpful! I am moving to Ithaca soon (My wife will be starting Law school at Cornell University) and I wanted to see if you guys can give me any advice on where to find Engineering job? Mechanical Engineering jobs to be exact. I just graduated with a Bachelor's degree so I will be most likely working as an Entry Level engineer. Do you guys know how is the engineering job market in Ithaca? How about jobs close to ithaca?

Thank you very much in advance!

This may help: mechanical engineer jobs in ithaca ny - Indeed Mobile

If you don't mind a drive or could split the difference a bit, Corning may have something as well: mechanical engineer jobs in corning ny - Indeed Mobile

This could be another place to look: Central New York Jobs

I recently moved to Ithaca, for a job, and was excited to do so. I'd heard so many wonderful things about it, and the people. I'm in my 50's, intelligent, artistic (photographer and writer), and very much into nature. I've explored the Adirondacks and other areas, and have no problems camping. I also live a simple/minimalistic lifestyle, eat healthy, and as woman who is part Native American, and part Celtic, also have an affinity for spiritual endeavors. People have been telling me for 10 years that I should move there. Sounds like a great fit for Ithaca, right?

I'm not impressed. Not at all. Yes, it's gorgeous - and gorges. Yes, there is a lot of community involvement and movements, and such. But what I've found is that it's all a bit pretentious, and I've also discovered a huge "reverse snobbery". If' your NOT "into" the latest natural trend, you're not one of them. If you shy away from the art galleries and openings, anyone who thinks they're an artist shuns you. If you don't chant and drum and seek refuge in the spiritual group, well, then you're just not really spiritual. If you don't want to live in a community group, dance naked, grow dreadlocks and become vegan ... well, then you're just an "outsider". Sorry, but I was a hippie way back where there were real hippies, and I've been studying various eastern philosophies and natural ways long before they became fashionable.

Personally, I think it's a neat place ... IF you want to groove or pretend to groove. But if these things, these philosophies, are an actual part of who you are and the way you've chosen to actually LIVE your life (in a quiet way, not having to shout it from the mountain tops), then the whole thing screams of pretention and snobbery. I don't see a lot of REAL change being affected, particularly anything being carried outside of the community ... I just see a lot of pretending to be "cool".

I have been living here for 4 years and that is far too long to be in this hellish town. It feels like a four year sentence and I am ready for my freedom. I laugh when I hear people call it a "city". Downtown is ridiculously run down (even with the new ""renovation" that's in place). There is absolutely nothing, and I repeat NOTHING to do for single professionals in their 30's. It is in the middle of nowhere and the closest "city" is Syracuse which offers nothing either. The weather SUCKS for 220++ days, it is always cloudy (so depressing), freaking cold, grey, dark, a rats' hole if you ask me. I cannot wait to get the hell out of this place... and do yourself a favor: think twice before moving to this **** hole.

Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?
