Has anyone moved from LCOL/MCOL area to HCOL for a new company/role? How do you go about researching how much you'll need to make in order to live comfortably in the new city?
I currently earn $200k TC and am paying a mortgage on a $650k house in a great school district (I have kids). It looks like the houses in the good school districts in HCOL are mostly north of $2m. 😬

I was offered a position through a recruiter and the company is now doing a background check. I haven’t received a written offer letter or started any paperwork.

After receiving the offer I turned down a final interview with another company. I’ve also been invited to another interview with someone else.

I don’t feel comfortable continuously turning down interviews if I don’t have a written offer or started any paperwork. I want to email HR about the process but what should I say?

I’m an attorney in small firm in downstate IL —anyone in general practice willing to share their salaries and/or how your firm structures compensation?

But if we can’t offer big city perks, there’s got to be another incentive).
