    I’d love that job if it wasn’t an internship. I currently make $85K in Austin, so it would need to be competitive with current earnings!

    Where are you making $85K in Austin? I live in Austin and have seen no such jobs. Most everything here pays between $10-$15 an hour no matter what your education or experience level. I keep wondering why Austin makes the “best places to live, work, buy a house, etc” when there are no jobs. Austin is becoming more and more like Southern California as they keep moving here to escape the high unemployment there. Wait until they get their property tax bill. Wherever you are in the US, remember, the grass isn’t always greener, especially in Austin.

    I wonder what it would take to get a job with CU. I live near Austin, but haven’t previously seen a single job listing for CU, and wasn’t even aware that they had an Austin team. Shouldn’t a consume advocacy group be known and accessible to consumers?
