DEFINITELY make Atlanta your choice. You didnt have THIS infomation in your first post. You will be very successful in Atlanta and find all you are looking for.

I'm just stating the facts since SHE brought up Houston as a second choice.

Do a google search on job markets and you will see that Houston ranks among the tops and Atlanta is still recovering.

You see it all over this board with people who go months and years without finding work here.

Stop feeding misleading information.

She prob can't go wrong with either city. I assume she is from las vegas according to her screenname. Unlike Vegas, both Houston and Atlanta have a good amount of diverse industries and makes a good place to start your career. It's not my dream city, but its "ok". There are alot of variables including luck and personal network, therefore you will never get a definite answer. Just visit both cities and see which one feels right to you.

I have no reason to lie to you. Atlanta needs recover before trying to get more people here.

Keep in mind you can't really enjoy a city with no job.

Tony why do you get so upset all the time man? there is nothing wrong with comparing cities. And you do not have to insult the other cities to make a point guy.

Getting a great job in Atlanta is very easy for women. The OP will be fine. She can move in anytime.

Stop the bickering people. Answer the OP's inquiry and stick to the topic, and not each other
. Thank you!
