Hi, I'm trying to get a gauge on the job market for professionals who aren't looking for jobs with the huge tech and pharma companies. Are are a decent number of professional jobs outside these industries or is it basically just bar and retail work or working at these huge companies?
I'm a sales-marketing-brand management professional and I prefer working for small (but successful) to mid-size companies. My boyfriend has received an employment offer in Cork, but the salary is such that we would not both be able to live on it and therefore we are quite nervous about how long it might take me to find employment. Particularly since we don't have a car. And since the cost of living seems so high there(since we'd have to live in the center in order to be most likely to be close to wherever I get a job....)
any-all advice would be helpful. We are at the point where we have to refuse the offer if we don't see some more concrete and confidence boosting info online about Cork (so far we have just seen high cost of living, not easy without car, center is super expensive, nice areas are super far from center... etc)
