I just received a great job offer in Chicago, or the Northwestern part of Chicago anyway. I am not actually sure if the job is going to be located inside the city proper or not, because I am not super familiar with the area, and I will be moving from Southwestern Michigan to start working at this new job. I am looking for a place to stay and right now I think I want to find a apartment for rent in Schaumburg or one that is fairly close to that area, because it seems like a nice area, and one that I could enjoy living in.
I know for certain that I do not want to live in Chicago, but rather I am going to live in one of the suburbs, and from what I research I have done so far on a place to live, Schaumburg is looking like a pretty good candidate for a nice place to live. So I want to start looking at apartments in that area, and see if I can find one that is fairly nice, without being out of my price range. I think that the apartments there are going to tend to be a bit pricey. I can afford a decently expensive apartment, due to the fact that the job offer I just received is a really good job.
I am going to be making nearly twice what I was making before, and so that is pretty awesome. I know that the cost of living is going to be higher, but not so much that it will cancel out the large increase in pay that I am going to receive. I want to hurry up and find an apartment so that I can get settled in before I have to start my new job.
