So I'm a 22 year old college grad from an east coast school who landed a yuppie job in consulting out in Century City. I've never spent time in the west coast and don't really know anyone besides a couple acquantances and a bunch of future co-workers who i've already met.

Where do I live? I assume that the westside is my best bet considering I'd pay up to 1300 for a place (preferably less) and would want to be close to the office. I've heard santa monica is a great place, but I've never been there. I've also heard nice things about brentwood. My interests: I'd like to be around a young, diverse crowd in an area where there are bars, restaurants etc. walking distance from my place.

The second question is, how do i do it? Would it be a good idea to look for an apartment or a house right after I move out (I'll get there around Sept. 12th, start work the 24th.) on a 6month to 1year lease, or get a sublet ready for when I get there and look for a permanent place once I get a little settled?

Thanks folks!

I'd sublet for a bit until you get to know the lay of the land. You'll find what area resonates with you. You'd like Santa Monica a lot. 1300 may be a long walk from 3rd St. Promenade but it's in the realm of possibility. If you're not here, it's difficult to get anyone to take you seriously re: renting their apartment.
