    Does anyone have any advice in the Accounting field or if you are an HR person. What the best route is in obtaining a job out of state? I just want to get out of WI!! What bigger cities are affordable and full of accounting/finance jobs!?

    Thanks in advance!

    From my observations/experience, most companies will trash out of area/state applicants. If you want to work for a particular company in a particular city, then you need to either..

    - Take a risk and move there, and apply.
    or
    - Lie about your address and apply now.

    In terms of finance jobs.. NYC, NoVa/MD, Houston, Dallas, SF, LA, Seattle.

    A friend of mine just moved TO Wisconsin because it is affordable and the economy is better there than in most places. I've been to WI and it is a very nice place except I have never visited during the winter though.

    San Francisco is always looking for accountants.
    But, not many people would describe San Francisco as "affordable."
