    Been entertaining this option for awhile now. After I graduated, I said I'd give the job hunt 6 months before I start the process. Well the time has come. I'm all but set to go. Most of the paper work is done, right now I'm just banking some cash until October. I'm in a friend's wedding and it would make no sense to leave now then fly back for it. I have a friend already over there with this program and she's loving it. Figure it's something I've always wanted to do, and I'll regret not doing it later in life. Hell, I may not even come back. She says they are in desperate need of accountants at every level over there.

    Just thought I'd add an update and see what all you guys think.

    My aunt lives there and my roommate travels there often for his GF he met there. Do it.

    I'm planning on visiting my aunt in the next year or so while she is there. Should be fun.

    Honestly, I love Jersey. Not many places in the world have a beach and a mountain this close, multiple places to eat at 5am, and multiple metropolises that you can drive to just for the night. No complaints about my current situation. But this is something I've always wanted to do.

    If it's as good as I think it will be, they may have to kick me out in order to get me to leave.
