New grad offered a job

  1. 0
    I am a new grad from Miami and have been looking for a job since I graduated last May. Well I finally was offered a position in Williston, ND. Those of you who live there know the housing situation. I've been all over craigslist trying to find a place to live. Does anyone know what I can do?? I do NOT want to pass up this golden employment opportunity just because I don't have a bed and shower. Please help!

    Craigslist, roomster, and other roommate sites might help. You will find something. Be careful once you are there though. It's very dangerous now b/c of the oil boom.

    Yes, North Dakota has the jobs and no places to live. I have heard of nurses being hired and then having to turn down jobs because of absolutely no housing. I have heard that there are very few places available. The only housing that is available is extremely expensive. I would look elsewhere for a job.

    There are lots of men from out of state to work in the oil field. Some of these guys are dangerous. Women have gotten raped and I think there have been murders too. You just have to be very careful. Also, the state doesn't have adequate police they need. Williston is where alot of these oil workers live. So you will be right in the middle of all of it.

    No I didn't. I'm having trouble also because we have kids and need help with them. I don't think I'll be able to take the job :-(

    How is this different than any other state? There's danger everywhere.

    So sorry to hear that. I have a phone interview for Trinity next week. I'm worried that IF I land a position, it will be nearly impossible to find a place there. How long did the hospital give you to find a place?
