I've been thinking about moving to the Denver area and would like to know more about the job market. I dont have a degree and have mostly done labor jobs with some customer service experience. Most labor jobs dont pay the greatest but I would be looking to get a shared house or apartment. do you think this is feasible? Any advice would be appreciated!

I keep seeing a ton of now hiring signs up everywhere in retail. I suspect shops are preparing for the holiday season...

If you have customer service experience, this might be a way to get at least a part-time job while shopping around for labor positions.

My advice...DON'T!


Housing is very expensive and menial jobs don't pay too well.

There are many more places that have more to offer at less the cost.

I came back last year because of family/job...and now wish I hadn't. Things have changed much since I left in 2011.

Cost is relative to where you are coming from. I'm from LA and Denver is comically cheap for what you get. If you're from Tuscaloosa, Alabama then it's probably really expensive.

I just spent some time in charlotte and it's growing a lot, really quickly. If you're looking for jobs in, say construction, charlotte would be a great place to be and it's even cheaper than Denver.

Comically cheap? lol! Maybe if you currently live in Malibu or Bel Air and then move to Aurora

We moved to Denver from central Orange County, and checking rents, they're comparable in our Denver neighborhood to what they are in our old CA neighborhood. Meaning, at least $1800 a month for a 2 bdr.

I suggest checking out Arizona or Texas, cheaper and better winters.
