job in Duluth

20 posts in this topic

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!

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
