So I am currently living in portland Maine (i'm an arizona native though) & i am putting some serious thought into moving to albuquerque. I know that the cost of living is a great deal less out there than it is here in Maine, But i'm curious to know how the job market is out there(its TERRIBLE here). I am an art student w/ an associate degree(will be transferring to unm). I have experience in social work ranging from HIV counseling to drug & mental health treatment for adults & youth. I have a long background in retail. Basically i have a pretty diverse work history
. I'm also wondering what area's to shhot for in ALB, i know that there are some pretty rough neighborhoods out there. Basically I want to get feedback from all those who care to respond on NM life, the pro's & con's, what to prepare myself for if i do move there, jobs, schools(I have a kindergarten age child), health care, blah blah blah all that good stuff. Thanks!
