Hey Catika, can't listen to everyone but hope you find good support along the way, Atlanta is a great place to live, lived in Calif, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida and now here and believe you me, I can't find anyplace that can beat Atlanta. If you want to visit someplace, hop on a plane and be off, only kissing the ground when you return. Close to the mountains, the beach, city life, country life, night life, best people in the world and there are jobs if you put yourself out there and not sit around talking about finding a job. Cost of living depends on you and how you live. Cheap is possible and extravagant is even more possible. Money talks but not only the young survive. If you make the move, welcome and if not, your bad fortune. We welcome everyone who is decent. If you don't like the move, move again. NOthing in life is permanent except, uncle sam and the undertaker. Good luck.

Born and raised in Metro Atlanta. I have never seen the job market this bad! Companies are wanting it all for no pay. So even if you have a degree don't expect the pay that some other people may have gotten in Atlanta. I do full charge bookkeeping and can not find a job making the funds that I need to make to pay my bills...I think we were spoiled with the growth and jobs that Atlanta had to offer for so long.

Please don't move to Atlanta. I hate it here and am looking to move away as soon as I get the money. Very hard to find a job. The traffic is horrendous. People are unfriendly; won't even look at you when you walk by. The weather is sooo hot, humid and miserable in the summer. Cold in the winter, but no snow ever. If you are a single female, it is very hard to date. The men are dirt ugly. There is really nothing to do entertainment-wise. I recently went to Chicago and cried for a whole week when I got back from that beautiful, fabulous city only to come back to this awful mess.

leaving in Winder, Georgia said: I'm leaving Georgia but it is cheaper than NJ where I grew up. I have only been here one year and did not like it. I have kids with special needs who cannot get the services they need and after I finished my research I found GA to be on the bottom of the list for services for special needs jobs. Bad place to be as a single parent though. I am divorced and hate dealing with some of the stereotypes constantly.

If you do move to GA, make sure you stay within Atlanta perimeter area if you want to work for decent pay. I moved too far out to the east and missed too many opportunities in downtown Atlanta. GA can be hard on people who did not grow up here so be extra viligant in your job search. Highest unemployment rate in the country so do not move here without a bachelor's degree, ok?

I just moved here it is hell. I did not have a job , but have a bachelor degree. It still has been hard to get on anywhere here. The hotel l stayed in for a week has drugs and prostitution quite different from the life l was use to coming from. I would advise anyone do not come unless you got a car, job, and a place to live or else you will suffer like hell. It is the hardest place I ever been to. Leaving asap.

Me to I just got here only been here a week its is scary and hell up here. Laws are unregulated people do whatever they want to do they do not give a dam. I am getting out of here fast. North Dakato was better then this place this is the pits of hell. Hard to get job, do not feel safe catching bus its a miserable place your right. I advise people not to come here unless they are ready to go to hell.

You are all being unrealistic. Of course, jobs are hard to find. We're in a f'g recession!!! There are practically no jobs for anyone - unless you get one through networking.

It's scary - or it's safe - depending on where you live. Do you live in the cheap part of town or middle class?

Traffic is horendous? Sure it is, it's a major city. Otherwise, move into the country area.

Jeff I disagree.... there are plenty of jobs in Atlanta. Too many people have bought the press..... if you really want a job you can find one... and Im not just talking about a job at burger king.

the Federal government is really hiring right now and will be creating over 200k jobs over the next several years and have already created thousands as part of the the Amerian Recover Act. there are lots of federal positions in various fields here in atlanta and the surrounding Metro

Catika, what type of job are you looking for and type of experience do you have.
the government is really pussing to hire more people from the private sector now a days.

That may be true but I have been in Atlanta for about 4-5 years, met some kool people, one of which is my husband now! : ) Ms Catika, you need to get yourself a good job. Thats right. I agree with Mslady and ladyfoster cause she is both right! there are jobs and they will be competitive. REAL competitive. You need a church home too. YOu need people honey. You need someone who believes in YOU helping you. BUT like alot of out of towners they come to the A expecting it to be the "Promise Land" and it is for the prepared; For the little fish, you get ate up! Believe Me! Pray about it and give it to God. Ask Him if that is His plan for your life! He will move you when you are ready! XOXOXOXOXXOXO

To all of you who have recently relocated...blame your self first. You should all know that before you move you need to do your research. There is no excuse not to. You have the internet, even if you don;t have one in your home you can go to family, friends or library to use the computer. You should have researched the job market and secured a job, had money saved for housing and found reliable housing, schools and neighborhoods can be checked online as well as income, cost of living, and pretty much anything else you may need to know. People are to quick to rush to relocate simply because they are unhappy where they are living. Cities don't change much only the people are different. Plan for a move, don't just pack up and go.

Hi LadyFoster,

I’m currently contemplating a move to Georgia, in fact to the Jonesboro area, near Mundy Mill Rd. Though my level of education isn’t as outstanding as most I’ve viewed in this forum, I would like to land a position in the government sector. I do possess an AAS in Business Administration with a concentration and certifications in Logistics Management and Logistics Management Export Operations. If this is your area of expertise, I would like some insight on these areas. Ideally, a government position in Import/Export operations.

I’ve also done some moderate research on special needs clients in the Atlanta area. What agencies or websites could you recommend I contact or visit that may have facts and general demographic layouts of counties in need of twenty-four hour Mental Health facilities?

OMG!!! please know that it's pretty much the same here if not worse. Entertainment, however, is pretty good as long as you have the money. Definately gotta have money to live in chicago. Chicago is a beautiful city, but the weather SUCKS- super ice cold snow in the winter and driving in it sucks!!Job market sucks here and everywhere throughout the country, no where is that much better- the whole country is in recession, not just certain states!!!

I think Atlanta has more to offer as far as living, it seems like you get WAY more for what you pay for compared to chicago. I mean an average 2 bedroom apt here is like $800-$900 and most of them are small and NOT updated at all.

I've lived in the Chicago area my entire life and am planning to move to ATL as soon as I find employment. I've been researching and applying for positions for nearly a year now. I know networking is the key and "knowing" someone ... well that's always helpful. I'd appreciate any help as I'm tired of snow and cold. I'm confident a change is on the way.

Ok...for some odd reason, people started moving to Atlanta in the '90s. I have been here for 32 years and seen the changes. Apparently, there were many jobs here so people started moving mostly from up north. Well, here we are in 2010. The economy sucks everywhere yes, but Atlanta is no safe bet for anyone. We have had a higher lay off rate than the national average in 2009. We are one of the highest lay off cities in the country as of 2009. The people are still here so it is constantly congested. You will spend half your day on one job prospect I promise you. Also, according to a Reader's Digest study, we were in the top three congested cities in the nation I believe. The city has attractions, and the suburbs not too bad, but being close to the beach? no...Savannah is 4 hours away. close to the mountains? maybe...about an hour or two...I guess that isn't too bad....close to the country side? yeah...just go anywhere outside of the metro area, and you will be in the boonies until you reach another major city. I guess I am biased because I have lived here too long, but facts are facts:NO jobs....TOO MANY people! If that is what you want, go for it!

Also,cost of living is high, and there are areas down south that are cheaper to live in. I never heard of "cost of living is what you make of it". It is actually a statistic of reality. For example, if you make say $30,000 and pay rent at $600, that is different than making $30,000 and paying $800 for rent right? Or, $2.50 for gas vs. $3.00? Anyway, we are still on the lower side of cost of living so that may benefit you in the longrun.

I agree. I just don't understand people relocating to another state without a job and housing available. No one wants to leave Illinois more than I do ... I'd be outta here today if I thought I could survive without a job. However, I am presently employed here, thank God for that, and won't budge until I find employment in another state of my choosing.

Many or most landlords will not rent to someone without a job or will insist on prepayment or the total amount of the lease in a security deposit.

People drink the media kool aid & up and move to a place that supposedly has the 'best job growth' or is a 'truely awesome city for singles &young people' yadda yadda. Look at Austin Texas for an example of this and then people complaining how they only find jobs paying $15 an hour despite there expectation (and sense of entitlement) that a non ivy league BA/BS degree entitles one to no less than six figures.

I want to move out of the Boston area and never look back. People aren't just rude here, they are downright hostile & nasty but I am not going to cash out the remainder of my savings to move to a place where unemployment is under 5%

no doubt...don't move until you have your ducks in a row. I am a nurse and could probably leave and find a job elsewhere, but I agree with previous posts here. The credentials are one thing. Having a job lined up is another. I have a job in the Atlanta area, and would like to leave someday. The only reason I am here is one: my job! and two: finishing my undergrad. If you don't like unemployment of 5% then Atlanta is not for you hehe...last time I heard it was 10.4%. Like I said before, go for it to anybody willing to take the risk. I think moving here at this time without a licensed, in demand skill is a set up for disaster!

I am a former resident of Atlanta of 8 years who recently relocated to a suburb of Chicago. I will say that I left Atlanta for many of the same reasons as some of the above posters. Now that I have lived in both cities, I can tell you that there are certainly pros and cons to both! I love Chicago for the cultural amenities that it has to offer, however, I absolutely hate the extreme segregation that exists. Atlanta has a similar problem, however, it never seemed as bad since you could go anywhere in Atlanta-Metro and see diversity with exception to the outskirts of GA. However, these are just my personal gripes! My advice to the OP is to make sure that you research the city, housing and job market thoroughly BEFORE taking the plunge! Also, keep your expectations low because if you don't, you WILL be disappointed. Overall, Atlanta could provide a nice living if you go prepared financially. If you are expecting Atlanta to be a magical city, don't! ATL has issues too just like any other city, but with that being said, your experience is what YOU make of it anywhere you go! Good Luck!

I understand that you looking for a mate to settled down with maybe you might need a change but dont do for the wrong reason maybe what type of guy you are looking for may not exiz so you need to subtract something what you looking for in a man. And maybe moving might be the key because I have a whole lots of cousin and bothers who looking for a mate to.

Wow yall got me pegged right. I am in search of a mate...also nicer weather but mostly a mate. I guess it's an epidemic for black women. I talked to a man for 6yrs here. Then another for 3. No serious commitment from either...just waisted time and eggs. But I don't want to giv up on love. I'm thinking maybe he's in another state. I don't kno what to do. I feel unhappy. I kno a man doesn't define you but it is on the hierarchy of needs lol! And men approach me daily but like 95% of them are a hell no. The other 5% may hav a wife, 5ft4in, or I'm not attracted ti him at all, or much older, or lives with mom...its always somethn

I wanted to move to ATL 5 years ago but was not able to. Now , I have the flexibility to do so, but what is being said concerns me because it think as a outsider we are looking for some facts not just unverified opinions. Are there other resources available that can direct relocators? Thanks

This is the worst place to try and come up. The jobs are scarce, little pay, its very different. Its hot & humid in the summer. You cant even enjoy the summer. I thought we would love this climate, but it turned out to be a disaster. We seen a big black snake in our basement, they have all types of crazy looking bugs here. We are miserable but we have to wait until our 16 yr old daughter graduates until we move back

br in Los Angeles, California said: Oh, I am sorry that it has proven to be a unhappy experience for you. I am looking to move to Georgia but first will be comming up to check out everything in a couple of months. Now, I currently live in Los Angeles and everything is so expensive and I can't seem to be able to make ends meet. I am employed and it dose'nt make much difference where I live , so that is not the problem. I just have moved to so many different places that I want somewhere where I can be permanent. So how is the rest of Atlanta.. the people , the prices.....?

Hello everyone, I have lived in ATL my whole life, mostly in Fulton County. Atlanta has a little something for most people. I'm in my 20's and live within the city limits of Atlanta, GA. Atlanta is a huge and i mean huge, metro area. If someone lives outside the city limits, they are not really in ATL. ITs amazes me that people who are used to living in other major ciites, move to metro areas of ATL and think that it will be bustling and vibrant. THis is NOT THE CASE.

If your looking for culture, hip, trendy, cosmo, entertainment et cetera then make sure you move to East ATlanta Village, Midtown, Downtown, Buckhead. There are singles & families here. If you move outside the city, of course there will be less stuff to do and more FAMILIES. Cost of living is from $650-$1200 for apartments intown.

I consider myself a open and tolerant person so I dont mind people who are totally different from me for the most part. I would like a change and have been kinda playing with the idea of moving.

If anyone has any questions, maybe i can answer.
