    Headed out to Denver tomorrow. Looking in earnest for a good position out that way. Open to where.

    Working in the Denver area now as a freelance interior designer for commercial/retail, and project manager/engineer/drafter for fabrication.

    Took a full time job in Lafayette and it's the absolute pits. Looking hard for work, freelance or full time. Design and project management for 3D fabrication, interiors, cabinetry, furniture, retail and exhibit design. Particularly interested in 3d design positions. Anywhere in Colorado, possibly surrounding states, possibly back on the coasts. Have a portfolio and resume I can send. Thanks!

    Know the feeling about a position just not being what you hoped it would be. I'm going back to the coasts for work.

    Yeah. I may have to. I'm still getting offers on the coasts for work that is more interesting and pays more, even for the COL.

    Yup. That's what kills me. I really want to live here, but no position here interests me enough to want to do it. Funny thing, ever position that does is on the coasts and they pay better with a better path upward. So, to the north east I go. Ah well, least I can get 2-3 acres with a view for the price I paid here.

    yeah, I totally get that. The work I do in NYC is so much more interesting than what I get here, and i get paid so much better and MUCH better benefits. It's really a bummer. I like it here quite a bit. I'm not leaving just yet, but I sort of feel like it's inevitable. hoping I can work something out to be here part time and NYC part time, at least.

    Good luck to you. My house will be listed this weekend. Just told my boss today. Figure it's time to make things official. Very much looking forward to my new position in the NE. Only bad part is we are going that way early Dec.

    Hopefully you can make it work out, but if you just aren't getting anything out of the work you have here I would say just make the jump. I tried to make it work, but finally had to be honest with myself that I was just not that into it. Due to that I knew I was just not going to excel at my work which wouldn't do my career any good. I was stalled.
