Hey guys- I was just wondering if anyone has heard of any positions around the area for a soon to be graduated UMD business management major. It's been kind of slow going for me so far and if you have any "hot tips" for a fellow outdoorsman it would be much appreciated. I'll also keep my eye on the job ops. thread.

Thanks, Cameron

Cameron McDonalds on London Road is hiring. grin.gif

Seriously good luck finding a job in your field in Duluth. I hope you can and get to stay around "Gods Country". I hate to see young guys like yourself having to move to the Twin Cities and elsewhere to get a decent job in their field!

The last time I graduated from college (assoc. degree)(and I ain't really young either) I wound up moving further north to find a decent job(used to live in Duluth), never figured that would happen. I really figured that if I couldn't find something in Duluth I would be metro bound. Strange how somethings work cool.gif

lol- thanks Northlander, I'll have to look into mcdonalds, maybe there is a possible career position for me there. I already told myself that I am going to stay out of the cities, I never grew up there and I don't want to ever live there. I think I'm going to try to tough it out and find something in the area. grin.gif

The job I landed just kind of happened by chance. It allowed me to enjoy Duluth for 4 more years!

Good luck to you, not a lot of opportunity, but then again if you fall at the right place and right time you just might land yourself a job.

I think this is quite the interesting topic... being that I am the only one of my college friends that stayed in town. It seems that the city doesn't do much to keep it's college students in town. Everyone comes here, goes to school, then leaves. I wonder what can be done?

My son is a freshman at UMD. Doesn't quite know what he wants to do. He writes music plays guitar at some of the restaurants in town. I told him I hope he makes it big so he can pay me back after 12 years of private schooling. smile.gif

He renting a house in Duluth this June and will also be looking for a job. I'll pass this on to him in case he runs across something that might be up your alley.

Good luck tcumd. I am attending UMD right now too, but I won't graduate for at least a year and a half. And I'm still a little scared thinking about finding a job after college.

It can take a bit of a financial sacrifice to live up here in God's Country. I went back to the cities for 6 anguished months before scrambling back up here. I felt lucky to find a low paying job in Duluth. After four years I am on the job hunt as well. If we're lucky there is something that fits our needs and values in life. Good luck, fellas.

Left a good job in the city,

Workin' for The Man ev'ry night and day,

bet I never lost one minute of sleepin',

Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been.

I gotta agree with all of you, growing up "up north" and then moving to the cities to works su cks. mad.gif Once I got my real estate license, I spent 3 months working (if that is what you call it when you live with college kids) in the big market of st. cloud to realize I don't like big cities and I gladly moved back up here to work for a company in northern Minnesota. IMO it is truly the better life.

I graduated from St. Cloud State and ended up moving up here a couple years after that. I work in the IT field, and it really is frustrating. Somehow we still have to pay high rent, but we make 10-15K less here than in St. Cloud. There is a lot more money in the cities, but traffic sucks, haha. And, whoever said that Duluth doesn't keep its students here is right. No one can afford to work up here. I really don't understand it.

No doubt about it the job market in Duluth is not a good one, especially for IT people. I had to move to find decent paying work in the computer/networking field, just didn't figure it would be further north.

The reason the pay is so bad is there a alot of folks looking for the same job and they can pay people less cuz people would rather live in Duluth than in the Twin Cites. Supply and demand, low number of jobs and lots of people applying = low pay frown.gif And it seems that people don't really want to live up here either, we just hired a IT tech person about 7 months back and we had less than 5 people apply. Go figure!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off

      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
