Today I put out seven applications for employment, some in Calgary, one in Edmonton, a couple in Lethbridge.
I was discussing this with M&F today – about taking work in Calgary. 1. There are more architectural positions there, and 2. the pay is higher there than in Lethbridge. However, what I would pay in rent, utilities, food, fuel for longer commutes, fuel back and forth from Calgary to Lethbridge, and a few more things, it seems not worth it at all.
Bottom line – my Mom is in Lethbridge and needs help being looked after, so I’ll likely stay in Lethbridge. Even if there is no work in architecture, there will be work in civil.
