I think my son got his job in Oct after graduating in May. But this was in 2022 so when pandemic uncertainties was still going on.

FWIW I suggest he focus on job vs location. After 2-3 years he’ll be more marketable and can pick and choose.

Welp, daughter graduated this week.

She's already gotten a PT job (she's done work there before and they like her) which she says will allow her to work up to 40 hours. It's in her area of studies and she enjoys it.

No benefits though so she'll stay on our health for now. She knows it's not a long term job, just for the experience and the CV.

Biggest challenge is for her and girlfriend to find a new apartment that is approx. mid distance to both of their jobs. Not looking forward to that as it'll be closer to Atlanta.

North, South, East, or West?

Caitlin graduated with her first master's in education. Starting on #2 this summer.

Mack's home for the summer. Today is her 20th, so we're officially without a teenager.

So somewhere a little north of I-75 and I-285.

That's what she wants.

One, she loves being a student (and she's paying, so...); two, every advanced degree bumps her teacher salary and given that KY is 41st or 42nd in teacher pay (and falling) and just blew off the Governor's attempt to substantially invest in education here - while at the same time moving forward with steps to completely eliminate the state income tax as if we're some desireable vacation destination like FL or AZ - she's basically taking matters into her own hands; and (3) it gives her an alternate avenue to remain in education outside of the classroom, which is her goal.

Nice.

We offered daughter graduate school and she said no, she wanted to start working.

She's doing both. She's been a full-time teacher for 2 years and doing the Masters work online in her "spare time." She ended up with a 4.0. I think 4 years of balancing college classwork with softball made it a pretty easy transition to juggling school and work.

{nods} I asked just on the slim chance it might be in an area where I'd have a useful brainstorm.

Alas ... etc etc

I was out there the other day, and there are so many apartment options. I just hate to guess what they go for.

Yeah, that's the part that (if I'm completely candid) had my actual reaction being "welp ... they're fucked"

We will be leaving in the morning for the long drive to Williamstown for my son's graduation. It still feels unreal. We are breaking up the trip both going and coming back with an overnight stay in Virginia. Originally we were going to take my Daughter's SUV (she and her husband is going with us), but we decided to rent a min-van to give us more room. 16 hours each way is a long ride. It is going to be an interesting week.

Looks like this thread was around in times I wasn't on the board, but it's pretty timely to have been bumped now. I'd love thoughts on this.

We've got three kids who just finished 8th, 6th, and 6th grades. We live near Chicago now, and we're thinking of moving back to the Detroit area, with the primary reason being that there are more options at various levels for our kids to go to college while still living at home.

I'll have to read the whole thread, but so far from the first page, I can't help but think "it shouldn't have to be this way" as I'm reading the posts.
