So I live in Brooklyn and am in the NYC Dept of Ed system as a substitute teacher. I do not own a car at the moment, can't afford one and have absolutely no experience driving on the highway. I'm right about to apply for jobs as the NYCDOE job applications for the 2013-2014 year is about to become available by the end of January and am currently working on my cover letter and tightening up my portfolio. As times get rougher, is it wise to apply for jobs outside of NYC, like Long Island or Westchester, even if I have to take long train rides on MTA plus LIRR or MetroNorth? All advice are welcomed. Thank you!
