How can I get free lancer jibs?
Might be something for me to look into myself since I am over 50.
Hi Michelle Cocco,
I am a born and bred Floridian. I've been here all my life, Central Florida to be exact. Here lately the areas surrounding where I live has really began to Boom as far as residency. With more and more newcomers to the area it definitely creates more jobs however it also raises the cost of living especially involving housing. The average monthly rental payments are between 12 to 1500 a month, and that's usually for a two-bedroom apartment. It is cheaper to buy a mortgage instead, however you have to have a nice down payment and then adding closing costs, taxes, insurance, appraisal, home inspection, etc. Not to mention your credit score has to be in excellent condition. Also because Florida is a peninsula which attracts hurricanes, homeowners and renters insurance is slightly higher than those of northern states. I am 53 years old, and I have two bachelor's degrees and a creative writing diploma and I have been out of work for a year. All of the positions in my fields of study that pay well have all told me that I don't have enough experience for the jobs applied for. All of the entry level positions I've applied for have told me that I am way overqualified. The average income to cost-of-living ratio is extremely unequally yolked. I apologize if I sound negative, however I wanted to inform you of certain things so you will be prepared and know in advance what you're looking at. Good luck to you and I hope everything works out for you.
