Colorado has more days of sunshine than California. Denver is getting a large influx of residents from different states, including California, which is causing massive traffic and skyrocketing the cost of living. Do some research but definitely consider those things

I moved to Boulder four years ago from New York and will never ever move anywhere else. This place is just incredible.

House Rent is slightly low compared to other metros. Cons : Dry area and not having good places to visit. Not many options for international travel.

Pros: standard of living is better than anywhere else I’ve lived. Beautiful city/state, you get to see mountains every day, mountains are easy to access and provide amazing activities for all 4 seasons, you actually HAVE four seasons, the weather is dry and sunny, and everyone seems generally happy and appreciative to be outdoors. Food, gas, things to do prices are normal. And sure, weed (if you’re into that). Cons: like any other city, traffic and congestion are a pain. Housing prices are high (and rent is higher). The airport is seriously in the middle of nowhere. It’s a tough time zone for consulting travel (going to ET sucks). Sometimes weather is either too hot or too cold. Denver is not big enough to have a really good “international” feel, so sometimes food/culture/whatever choices are limited. Also, if you’re single, it’s basically a sausage fest right now...would be a pro if you’re female, or con if you’re male. All in all, if I have my choice I’ll never leave. This place offers amazing options for most of what I could want in any given day/week/month....definitely worth the move!

Boulder is amazing - grew up in the suburbs 15 minutes out 😊 agree with what folks above are saying re: Denver. Great to live there too but prices are going way up and lots of folks are moving there. Still will be cheaper than Boston ofc and reasonable COL overall, but worth considering! It’s a mellower city than the ones you’ve lived in. Neighborhood is important in terms of culture.

BC1 15 minutes outside Boulder ... mind if I ask where? My bf is from Longmont.

3rd on Boulder. I’d move there in a heartbeat if I could.

Yep! Superior. Great neighborhood and schools. I went to Eldorado K-8 there then did high school in boulder, in case you have kids

I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising. Also, I’ve heard comp is ok and typically lower than consulting (and WAY lower than the investment teams…) and mostly concentrated among the top dogs. Accurate? Anyone know people who took this path?

So with all the chat on here about how easy it is to get hired, are you as a hiring manager putting more emphasis into screening and challenging interviewees than before as a response?
