I am pretty close to making the final decision to move from Boston to Denver in the coming months. The cost of living out here and the comparitively low pay has me fed up. (550/month with 32k salary for an OK apartment). I am a recent grad in advertising and am wondering how the job market is in that field. Am I looking at a tough job search if I decide to move out there? And is the cost of living vs. wages reasonable compared to Boston? - which is now the most expensive city in the country.

You might be in for a rude awakening. I also live in the Boston area and have worked in Boston (Hancock Bld) for a number of years. But, at the end of 2006 I took a job with a firm headquartered out of DTC in Denver. I was hired based on the normally higher slaary that NE jobs pay but now that we are ready to relocate to Denver I can see from my last pay raise/bonus which is based on the Colorado salary scale that it is a little bit lower. This is based on the fact it is a little cheaper from what I have seen than Boston. I am not in advertising (information security/IT risk management) but would say that you should be able to best the salary you are getting in Denver or anywhere else for that matter. Living in Boston is incredibly expense as I am sure you already know. Good luck with your move.
