I would if I were white! But I’m not :/



North Bend is great, especially if you like the outdoors. It gets crowded with hikers/skiers at times and sometimes the local infrastructure really cannot handle the additional people. That’s not a unique problem to North Bend mind you. I’d only offer that while you don’t currently need to go to an office, that may not be the forever situation so keep potential future commute in mind and if it’s something that you’re okay signing up for.


Do it. I used to live in Snoqualmie and I loved it. You will not regret it at all.

Hiking and rock climbing!

We were considering this a while ago. Some thoughts
1. If you are not an outdoorsy type of person, and wants to go into the city for your weekend activities, it'll be a hassle. We loved the views and feel of being surrounded by greens and mountains, but don't love hiking or camping.
2. North bend is a bit removed from everywhere. You want Safeway or QFC or easily accessible Gas Stations? There's less of everything.

I interviewed with Goldman Sachs for 3 different divisions for Internal Audit Associate role. After successful interviews, they asked me about which division do I want to work with. I gave them the order of the roles I am interested in. Next step was basic talks with Recruiter and Immigration team. They gave me to fill recruiter form (focussed on Salary expectations) - TC in NYC on LinkedIn is 85k to 140k. I gave 150k as I wasn't unaware about the range before.
Issue - not heard back from them
