A very good recent article on BusinessWeek.com highlights the importance of comparing your salary with the cost of living in your area. Not that this is a new concept or anything, but there are definitely some new cities that are popping up on the radar as being easier on the wallet, while still filling it with good pay. For example, a person making $50,000 in Houston will be able to stretch that much farther than someone in San Francisco. So the person in San Francisco is kind of getting a bad deal…and should probably check out my other postings to look for a better job! 🙂

And back on the topic of Houston, they also made the list for the top 25 US major metro areas that had competitive salaries along with a lower cost of living. You do need both ideally, because although the cost of living may be ultra low out in the boonies somewhere, where are you going to work at all, much less for a competitive salary. Unless you are fortunate enough to be able to work from home full-time, then that situation will usually have a lower salary hand-in-hand with cheaper prices on most everything.

With the economy the way it is right now, will people will start moving to make their paychecks last longer? After all, who wants to throw it all out the window because of sky-high prices even in a good economy? Some cities may have a lot to offer, but they may just not be worth going broke over. Maybe all this will inspire some folks to pack up and start up somewhere brand new!

Those of us that have studied abroad know that there are all sorts benefits that come from taking classes in another country, but not everyone realizes that the experiences you have over there can also be very beneficial in the professional world. Study abroad can be a highly impressive addition to put on a resume, if it is done in the right way.

It’s all about what activities get highlighted and describing those with the right “enhancement” words. For example, you may not want to mention that a good deal of your time studying in London was spent in pubs cheering for the Arsenal. Instead, you may want to either leave that part out completely, or reword it to make it sound like a truly eye-opening cultural experience! 😉

And of course there are other things that should definitely not be left off the resume, such as language skills that may have been gained, classes and field trips that may directly apply to your career path, any teaching and other work you may have done, and the list really goes on and on. The key is just making sure that it gives a positive boost to your resume, so if you think a certain activity from your journey applies to the job you want, then it probably should be included.

Another great aspect gained from going abroad is that usually the skills picked up there are unique and valuable enough that they can oftentimes be brought up again on later resumes, unlike some items that will get pushed off as time goes by. But of course studying, interning or working abroad doesn’t have to stop after college either! I will be writing a separate post on that sometime very soon!

For more detailed information on this topic, please refer to Salisbury University’s Career Services page about putting study abroad experience on a resume.
