Hello, I'm Andy. I enjoy the outdoors, and am interested in pretty much any method of acquiring your own food as a method of recreation. Currently I do some hunting, fishing, and gardening, though I am not very experienced in any of these areas. I hear that New Hampshire is a great place for hunting and fishing, and if true that is pretty cool.
I am 29 years old, have a bachelors degree in accounting, and have lived in California all my life. I am not a CPA, nor do I have the educational requirements in CA to become one as the current requirements are now essentially that I need to have a Masters degree before I can take the exam. I have worked in Accounts payable, and in roles similar to accounts receivable since I received my bachelors degree. I have worked primarily as a temp, either because the companies I worked for did not want permanent workers or because they were in the process of downsizing or moving out of California. For this, and other reasons I have long wanted to leave for just about any other state. However, previously I had little savings so the prospect of moving anywhere seemed out of reach. I now have five thousand dollars in savings, and I expect that my current job will last at least until the end of the year allowing me to save up a bit more. I have been determined to leave California, even before I knew anything about the free state project. When I recently learned about the free state project, I decided to make this account so that I could ask some questions.
So my questions are,
1: For jobs like accounts payable and accounts receivable, where would be a good part of New Hampshire to move to? For whatever area people mention could they also tell me about that areas public transportation? I own a car, but if I moved to an area where one wasn't necessary I would consider selling it so that I would have more savings.
2: If I got an apartment in that area, realistically, how long should I expect a job search to last? What are the experiences of people that move to New Hampshire and try to get a job? I want to have some understanding of this, because I want to know if the amount of savings I will have when I try to move to New Hampshire will be enough.
3: Realistically, is there any chance of getting a job in New Hampshire before moving there? I have never done anything like that, and I don't know anyone who has. I usually get my jobs through placement agencies like Accountemps (Robert and Half).
Any answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated.
