I have a great job waiting for me in Columbus, Ga. My fiance will be retiring from the Air Force in April. Will he have it easy finding a secure job there? What are the good companies to work for there? Thank you so much. All your advice is appreciated because I really want him to come with me and not wait for me to get settled and then come. We're moving there from Utah.

What field is he going to be working in? They are plenty of businesses in Columbus. Seriously I dont think he will have a hard time finding a job, seeing as he has military experience. Which is a plus in the city.

HI
I am in the same boat as snowflake except the one looking for employment is myself, I am in the Human Resources industry mostly for non-for profit. I would truly appreciate any input.

I know times are hard during the recession. Maybe you should look into jobs in Atlanta/auburn and commute. I know it seems like it would be hard but surprisingly I have met many people who do that commute daily?!?!?
