I would avoid south and East of where you’re at and go north or south. Islington/central areas around holborn/Bloomsbury/fitzrovia tend to have better transport links and are really buzzy on the weekends. It’s more convenient for someone new to London.

East anywhere in Tower hamlets will be comparatively cheap, well connected and have dome bits going on. There are q lot of new build to rent developments like FizzyLiving popping up that are good options

Alternatively, South around Bermondsey, Canada Water etc isn't bad either - a bit more expensive though

Hello, I'm new here, I want to see opinions. Several days ago I was contacted by a hospital recruiter here in Florida. The position is patient financial rep. When I am in the interview, the salary part arrives. She asked me how much i earned at my current job and I innocently told her. I made a serious mistake, she only offered me 75 cents more than I made an hour at my current job which is temporary. My interview with the managers is this Wednesday. Do you think I should negotiate ?

Hello, I am a big law associate in the US looking to relocate to the UK. How difficult is this to do? Can this be done?

Just walk out on last day?
