deathcookieYeah I know that the small ski scene can be super fun, as I grew up skiing PA. I moved out west for university, fully invested in backcountry skiing, and got super spoiled. Nevertheless, now that I am done, and don't yet have a good job (I am applying everywhere like crazy!) my parents are emailing all of their eastern and midwestern friends trying to set me up with work.
Essentially, they are not skiers, are sick of my "obsession," and want me to move back towards the east coast.
I am not sure where in Wisconsin I might be located.
Figure out YOUR priorities. I capitalize that only to emphasize that you need to figure out you, not what your parents want.
If you want to move where back near them or go in a career path to please them that's fine, as long as you want to. If you want to ski you don't have to give up on that.
Most parents love their kids but that doesn't mean they know what's best for them. You're an adult. Figure out your priorities and then make a plan from there.
Let's say you want to ski. Figure out where you want to be and what you want to do. Now what applicable skills and experience do you have that will help you? Are you looking just to be skiing or a specific job?
Then beyond that where do you want to be in the future? IMO it's perfectly fine to take some time and work a whatever job to keep skiing until you find something you love. Hell it's fine to work a whatever job that pays shit for ever if it makes you happy and you can live like that.
Sure the world isn't perfect, but there are plenty of opportunities out there. You need to figure out what you want out of life, and how you can achieve that.
Good luck. Hope it works out
