    I need to move, just my luck not only am I attending college in one of these cities but finding a job is almost non-existing especially in my field, although that is going on all over California.

    Uff, that's terrible for California! I live in Long Beach and I'll be living in Riverside for the summer. Uff! Well actually, I live in Europe atm, but moving back home. This worries me.

    I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and I am unemployed and have been having a hard time finding a job. I find it interesting though that Orlando/Kissimmee and Las Vegas, being such huge tourist places, are having the same problem. I guess I would think that those would be some of the easiest places to get a job.

    Re: Likeduhh – I'm from Long Beach too! It's horrible here! I haven't been able to find a job in close to a year! (I got laid off due to company downsizing) There's always hope though so I don't dwell on it. Just keep on searchin' haha :)
