In-between contracts I spent 2 years contracting for Comcast as a sales technician while I was attending RRCC full-time. I've spent the last year finishing up at CSU with an BS in Psychology, but mainly focused on organizational psychology (pscyh of the workplace). I'm looking for a new career, but I have nothing specific set in mind. I have no issues with starting at an entry level position as long as there are opportunities for advancement. I might also add that the position must provide enough compensation to live comfortably.

If you know of any open positions please get a hold of me and I'll send my cover letter and resume.

Salida is hiring a cop, new or used.

How much money does it take to live up in that area comfortably? I plan on having a small apartment for the initial move. I would prefer a garage. Are groceries, gas, and other living expenses more expensive up there?

I'd be grateful for any help you can provide!
If you hate traffic, terrible drivers, and crowds, don't move to the mountains full stop. Especially on the I-70 corridor. Tourist season can be a bitch when you just want to chill out at your favorite hangout. Also, garages are a premium item. When we moved to Salida we thought we were pretty lucky renting a place with 350 square feet for $650 a month with off street parking for the bikes.

Look at median income vs median home price. Typically in the tourist zones the income is well under and the property well above state medians. It's definitely not easy to make it without a decent plan unless you're a spectacular bartender or waiter... at multiple restaurants.
