extremely tough...business/restaurants are closing...dont get me wrong every restaurant we go to we have to wait, but on the other hand the more jobs that will be lost people wont be able to eat out as much....

What is the average time to find a job do you think? We are thinking of relocating to the area...we have been for a while...but we are wondering about how long it would take for my DH to find a new job.. He has been a Chef for 15 years....

Stacey - I don't know if this is helpful or not. But we have Johnson & Wales here. They may have info on jobs here as well as leads. I was thinking that it may be helpful for you all to contact them and see what type of info and leads they can help you with.

That's a great idea...we also realize that it will be next to impossible for him to find something while we are still in NJ.. Our plan at this point I think is
to sell our house ..my dh will move down to the area by himself to find a job and Our two children and I will stay with my parents until they are done with school then will move down with them....Does that sound too risky?

Stacey, there are a million threads here about how bleak it is right now. Especially the restaurant business...

Unless he's wolfgang puck, I wouldn't take the chance......

Are you prepared to be away from him for possibly 6, 9, 12 + months possibly?

He's going to have to pay rent down here I'd assume....w/no work....can you pull that off?
