Today's question: What's the longest commute you'd be willing to make for a great job?
"I'd go an hour or so, though as I get older, I am less willing to travel long distances in the winter." - Sherry, on Facebook
"It depends on the traffic." - William, Manchester
"I would commute 90 minutes to two hours for my dream job." - Kristy, Contoocook
"It depends on the type of transportation." - Gilbert, on Facebook
"Great job...single Mom. Hmmm. Unfortunately, given single Mom-dom, I'd only be willing to commute 30 minutes each way." - Anne, Concord
"15 minutes." - Andrew, Thornton
"An hour." - Heidi, Goffstown
"I currently commute 60 miles each way, which equates to about an hour and 20 minutes to two hours, depending on traffic. But, I only do this three times a week!" - Jennifer, Sandown
"90 minutes each way if it were a 9-5 type gig. From Bedford I'd commute to Boston if I had to, which many do." - Sean, Bedford
"The last time I was on a job hunt, I drew a circle with a 45-minute commute radius, giving my town Acworth the center point. Anything more than that and I'd be working for gas money only!" - Kat, Acworth
"If we had a train/subway mass transit, I could tolerate an hour. In the car, no more than 20-30 minutes. I'm extremely lucky that I currently work for a company based in Brooklyn, but work from my own office in Chesterfield, N.H." - Eric, Chesterfield
"Never commute more than 30 minutes. Life is to freaking short." - David, Facebook
"Up to 35 miles or one hour each way from Groveland, Mass." - Doug, Facebook
"45 minutes." - Jack, New Boston
"Already doing it, 2 hours one way. Checked into personal aircraft...but they are too expensive!" - Hope, Facebook
"I once drove from Berlin, NH to Boston, MA for a part-time job, I wouldn't want to drive any further than that and if it were full time I'd move closer." - Roger, Facebook
"I do 2 hours one way for a 13-15 hour shift 2 or 3 times a week. It's much less fun in the winter...I listen to a lot of NPR on my commutes." - Deborah, Facebook
"A great job is one that doesn't require a long commute." - @RobertTanguay
