Zillow.com, Redfin.com and Roomates.com are pretty reputable.

They can help while you work the job!

three months is a long time. Are you receiving interview invitations? I would recommend asking someone else to review and critique your resume. Practice your interviews. Think about - How old are you? Do you have experience? - what are your living expenses? Is $14.50hr worth your time and effort?
Unless you don't really have many expenses, are in high school, living with your parents, and this is a part time job.
Keep in mind that sometimes having a job will keeps you from seeking new opportunities as your job takes the best part and most part of your day. If you know you are worth more - do not settle - keep searching - find ways to add to your skill sets - if you can't afford paying for a school - watch youtube instructional videos so that you can add to your resume - about being familiar with those programs or skills. Invest in yourself so that you will find better opportunities and better paying jobs.

You should take it if you don't have family you could always find out if there is an a roommate that needs a roommate and share the utilities and rent

Look at your resume. If this job will strengthen your past experience then you should take the job. As a former NJ resident I can tell you the drive to Massachusetts is one that you should consider your final move. It's all about the traffic congestion and hard to schedule arrival times. Once you get to Massachusetts look for temporary accommodation until you can make some friends and try to get an apartment shared situation to help pay the bills. Make sure you plan to stay at this job 6 months to a year and longer if you like. Life is easier with an income and you can always look for better position with higher pay once you get there. Good luck

Boston and the surrounding area is very expensive. And Liberty will not pay moving expenses unless you are promoting to a grade 10 or so. I worked there for four and a half years. They are very into micromanaging now. But it is a good company to start out with.

Take the job. The Insurance Industry is an awesome field to get into. I start at age 16 part time and moved up the ladder quickly. At end of day I owned and operated my own company. I say go for it. Also if you’re happy with the job, the money will follow

I would stay in NJ but if mass is a place on your bucket list and you know someone that lives there it might be a great opportunity to define yourself.

Stay in NJ and keep looking for a job their. I agree with John Heinen if you can afford the rent then why go to Mass. Maybe you should try calling Liberty Mutual in NJ. If they hired you in Mass I don't see why you couldn't get hire in NJ. I live in Mass and the rent is super high or you have to have a good paying job to pay the rent. Yes you can rent a room but still that's almost 700 to 1000 a month alone. Mass does have a lot of low paying jobs thou. Have you tried to go into NJ.gov I know in mass they has the state website and they have a lot of job listings. Best of luck in whatever you decide to do. I really do hope you get a job soon. I know it can be hard finding a job

You housing expenses shouldn't be no more then 1/3 of you take home pay. At anytime what the sense working there if you can afford the rent. Go back to hiring manager and tell him or her. But it sounds like you didn't do you home work.
