I was born and raised in northern AR. My Mom and Dad and my wife's live in the mtn Home area. I lived in Colorado from 1995-2000 and loved it. I have worked for a wireless company since 2000 - and they sold me to a contracting company in Sept of 2009. My job will end .... as it has for 1/2 the guys I've worked with. Maybe it ends in 3 months, maybe 9 months ... maybe I'll get my pink slip on Monday. Nothing is here for my wife, 11 and 9 year old kids except the job really. I make good money right now, I am good in my mortgage with my home. I have a job offer for a 30 month, contract to hire position in Denver. its about $35,000 more than I make right now. Its for Verizon - big company, lots of opportunity if I can hire on with them. If this opportunity doesn't work, Denver market is huge and I can get another job I bet vs finding one here in Arkansas. If I move, I will miss seeing my parents often, hunting and fishing with Dad. The kids won't see their grandparents as often. The wife and kids stay with her sister in Denver in the summer - the kids aren't strangers to Denver. If I move, I'm living in Colorado, elk, bear, antelope, muley bucks, 4 hours from Kansas .... I'm making more money at least temp anyway ... and career opportunity is there. I know I've not given all the pro's and con's ... but based on what I have given would you move your family for it ?
