The job market here on Long Island is terrible. I am also out of work. My dream job would
be, you guessed it meteorology. I always wanted to persue a career in weather.
One of the toughest fields to get into.

Thank you for replying Jesse. I was just looking at the Job openings at Accuweather.
Unfortunately, I don't qualify for those positions. As you know most positions in
meteorology do require a degree in meteorology and previous job experience in
weather. Unfortunately I don't have a degree in meteorology or previous weather
experience. As much as I would love to have a job in weather, that is why its
a tough field to get into.

The car rental industry is hiring, I know here in Sacramento, CA we are actually desperate for help of people who are qualified. You can try the major rental car companies sites under employment.

They are Hertz, Enterprise and Avis. Usually pay starts around 45,000 here in Sacramento for a beginning position and goes up from there.

Thank you for replying ALJ, like I've been saying the job situation here on Long Island
NY is bad. I've been sending out alot of resumes and applications online. Even the car
rental comapnies here. But you know how it is. Dont call us, we will call you.
Maybe I should relocate to another part of the country like Florida or California or
the Carolinas. I think there are more opportunities there than where I am.
I think I would have better luck.

Thanks for replying snowman, tell me about it. I think the NYC Long Island area has
the toughest job market in the country. I recently heard on the news that the
Carolinas, Florida, Texas, the upper midwest and New Hampshire have the best
job market.

The natural gas industry in North Dakota is creating a surge in jobs there. McDonalds is paying $10+ per hour.

I'm am not picking on your example, but you are the first one that I saw uttered the bold.

The problem is employers these days want brand new employees that have loads of experience and a nice piece of paper saying they studied the above (like I said I have no idea if this particular example you need a degree or not).

Not everybody can go to college (for some its nearly downright impossible...less get thousands of dollars in debt to get a degree and not be guaranteed a job).

Thanks for replying. I appreciate your Job advice. I even tried Mc They are not hiring
in my area. $10 an hour is good. I'll take it. The fast food places here in NY much less than that,
more like 7 an hour but there not even hiring where I am. Maybe I should move to ND

Nothing in S. Carolina, maybe in Carolina. Check with Wings.

N Dakota has the lowest unemployment in the US, around 4%

For working at these companies there are two routes you can take, one without a degree just a high school education and the other with a degree and both start with the same pay but one offers a fast track to promotion the other doesn't. Basically the difference is that with the degree you'll get promoted within a short period of time the other it takes longer but both can get you far in the company if you're motivated and a hard worker. In fact I have when I first started my boss did not have a degree but he again was my boss. Sure it took him 4 years to achieve what I did in 9 months but still he got to the same spot.

Believe it or not the Sacramento area in CA is actually booming for jobs and it's a relatively inexpensive area to live by CA standards. When I began looking for a job last year I had numerous job offers so it's definitely an area of opportunity. In addition you can buy a decent house here for around 150,000 which is really great and the salaries on average are still high compared to the rest of the country. You'd be hard pressed to find a professional job paying less than 40,000/year. The weather is a little tough for you snowbirds though because it's usually warm even until NOV , it's sunny 80% of the year and it doesn't snow here in the urban areas at all. But I'm sure you can live with that wink.gif

If the snowbirds want snow, they can just drive up the I-80 to the Tahoe area which is mainly above 7,000 ft for some real snow, probably a lot better snow than what they're used to back East. Or they could also take the US 50 route into that area.

Temecula Seasonal Precipitation 2014-2015: 0.88" (-0.77")

Yes that's correct. The mountain cities are some of the snowiest cities in the US.

Thanks again AIJ for replying to me. I appreciate your advice. So Sacramento is reallly good
for jobs right now, and you say the C0L is on the low side there. Sounds good.
Maybe I sould consider or at least think about possibly relocating there in the future.

I agree with you on that. A college degree does not guarantee a job. I have a question.
Does anyone know of any company in the NYC or Long Island area or anywhere
in the Country that would hire a person for an entry level weather position without a
degree in meteorology or experience in the area of weather, as I always wanted
to persue a career in meteorology. I have an Associate degree in Liberal Arts but
not a degree in meteorology. I would be willing to relocate to another area of
the Country for an entry level job in weather. Your reply would be appreciated.
