    Hi Sarah,

    I posted your question in the group SF Bay Area / Silicon Valley. Hope they can help you!

    Where abouts are you looking? East Bay, SF, San Jose? I grew up near Oakland, and my family still lives out there. I’ll ask around to see if they know anyone in Gov. What’s your field?

    Hi Jeff,

    My fiance is moving to take a job in Oakland, but will probably live in the Walnut Creek area. I’m looking for anything within a 30 miles or so radius, maybe more. I have two or three fields: 1. libraries, 2. business continuity, and 3. program analyst. My job series has always been program analyst, I just do lots of different things. Thanks for the help!

    Walnut Creek is awesome. Municipal jobs are kind of scarce in the current budget climate, but if you can land one, the pay is good. And program analysts are generally in demand.

    Thanks, Adriel. I’ve spent a lot of time looking at apartments online, but it’s helpful to get feedback from someone in the area. I’ll check out those websites. Thanks!

    Sarah, if you can live near Walnut Creek downtown, it really is one of the best places in the Bay Area. We used to live right next to the library, but it was a very old building and that was at the peak of the housing market so we moved to Dublin to buy (more affordable housing and new construction). Living near BART is also very nice.
