How is the job market in Philadelphia? I'm thinking about moving there without a job
#Shareef Collins on Mar 14, 2017 :
$125 for gas, eclectric, water. I'll have to ask for a few k from the utilities dept.

@Cesar Roncallo, You're pushing it but if you know how to live cheaply, you'll manage. You can find decent shared housing for $650 + utility. In this case, it may be a struggle to find cheaper housing since you generally don't want your rent to cost more than 1/3 of your salary. Everywhere is accessible by public transportation. Or walking/biking. You can find cheap food and drinks at neighborhood bars. If you're looking for cheap/safe young professional neighborhoods (gentrified)I suggest looking in South Philly, Spring Garden or West Philly (below 48th street). Good luck!

Hi, I'm doing an internship next December in the city for one year, the salary is $US 1,800. Is that enough for comfortable living?
