My husband and I are relocating back to the Grand Forks/East Grand Forks area in December. We lived there previously for 4 years, and after my husband was offered a job in Grand Forks, we decided it was time to go back. I am finishing up graduate school and have begun browsing for jobs in my field. What I am finding thus far is that the vast majority of the most promising job opportunities for me are in the Fargo/Moorhead area. I will be working in the medical field (physician assistant), and was actually quite surprised at the lack of PA opportunities in Grand Forks (especially considering North Dakota's only PA program is at UND).
Of course I am going to do everything in my power to find work in Grand Forks, but I'm wondering if anyone here has ever made the commute from Grand Forks to Fargo (or vice versa) every day, and would it make me crazy? I'm not so sure about I-29 every day in the winter...
Living in Hillsboro or Mayville is definitely not an option for us. We love Grand Forks, and know that is where we want to buy a home, raise a family, etc. We lived in Crookston, MN for a year and absolutely hated it. The creature comforts of being in a medium-sized community are too important to us, and we know from experience, that we cannot be happy in a community the size of Crookston. Plus, we are self-proclaimed Sioux hockey fanatics
Sorry for the lengthy post to ask a single question, but I just wanted to give a little bit of background info first so as not to get the suggestions of living somewhere in the middle. Hopefully, things employment-wise will work out in my favor...I just want to research all possibilities first! Thanks for reading!
