They seem cool on the outside but have heard unfortunate things from friends who work there. There are some really cool agencies in Maine, if you're in the area let me know.


If you want to work in maine, go work for words from the woods


Don't know much about VIA but I know about Portland. It got crazy expensive with rents sometimes reaching NYC prices. It is now cheaper to buy a house upstate ny and nj. So, negotiate your salary wisely.

Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.

Is anyone at a job they really, truly enjoy that also pays competitively (and has good benefits)? In my experience, I haven’t found anything that satisfies both.

Maybe it’s just the way this industry is?
