Great livable city and close to SF. Diverse and interesting, culturally. Top notch university in town. Cool and unique shops and restaurants
There aren't many large companies in Berkeley that offer a variety of jobs at all levels. There are opportunities primarily in the food industry, the retail sector, and the university. Overall I believe that there are decent jobs available, but not necessarily jobs that lead to careers.
