Jobs in Manhattan
A lot of people live and work in Manhattan. Then there's a bunch more who live somewhere else and come into Manhattan to work. Manhattan holds a lure for certain occupations. Some of you recounted your own job-related thoughts when I asked What Does Manhattan Say to You?.
Mitch Mitchell said: "Manhattan... overall I love Manhattan! I've been multiple times; it helps living in the state, as I've also been to Niagara Falls multiple times (it really helps living in the middle of the state). Back in '09 I worked in Manhattan for 3 months and, other than where I was working (in Harlem, 125th St), I loved every single day of being there. I rarely ate at the same place more than once; what a good time I had!"
If I had the right kind of job--something that I enjoyed and for which I was adequately remunerated--I might like to work in Manhattan. If I could live in luxury that would be very nice. But I don't know--maybe the big city life would be too busy for me. But, yeah, hand me the right job offer and I'd certainly consider it.
Robin from Your Daily Dose told her Manhattan job story on her blog but she said I could summarize it here. In 1990 Robin headed of to New York City to find a job. She got a place to stay with a friend who helped her navigate life in the big city. In her blog series about her adventures (yes, it's a series) Robin recounts her career with a publishing company and a few of her mishaps encountered in city life as well as people she encountered along the way. Story starts here.
Have you ever worked in Manhattan or a similar urban environment? What would be your dream job? What is more important to you regarding a job--money or the joy of the job?
