I just found this site- its wonderful! Hope I'm not repeating questions that have been asked a million times but here goes:

Fell in love with Colorado- especially the Boulder area years ago and swore I'd live there someday- if it weren't for out of state tuition prices I'd have gone to college there.

Currently in CA. Have a BS in Business Management but unemployed and can NOT find a job and entry level jobs here wont even cover my rent!!

With this current break in my schedule and life I'm excited about turning it into an opportunity to finally move to Colorado.

My thoughts are, with my current situation, the cost of living being so much lower there and the fact that there seems to still be a few entry level jobs still available (compared to the SF bay area here in CA) It might be a great chance for me to relocate.

I'm looking into the Fort Collins area, Boulder, Longmont, possibly Denver. I love the mountains and I'm very outdoorsy- want to be near metro areas not right in the heart of them...
Would love some good honest opinions from you all!
Where would be the best place to relocate as far as jobs are concerned. Does my plan sound reasonable (I do have enough saved up for a safe move and to keep me settled for a few months) ????

Any thoughts are appreciated!! OH and by the way- I have one month left living in the house I'm at and need to move ASAP!!! Thanks guys- crazy times!!

We have no idea what type of job or potential income you are interested in.

Land a job, then move, if you can. Otherwise rent a room until you get a job.

The best place to relocate as far as jobs are concerned is Denver. Once you land the job, you can move anywhere within a reasonable commute of it (reasonable to you).

It depends on what sort of work you're looking for, but it sounds like you don't have much to lose. If you have enough saved for a few months' living expenses why not just just move out, rent a place and start looking for work.
