That's what I'm planning on lol. I just need to know what types of jobs to look for. Do you know of a way to get a job lined up relatively quickly? Besides using Indeed linked in and Craigslist lol?

Part of CO's low unemployment # is a lot of immigration (generally people who move to another state have a job lined up) and there's not much entrenched poverty. The low number doesn't necessarily mean the job market is red hot (unless you're in retail or construction).

Will you get a job if you move to CO? Probably, but it's not necessarily guaranteed. Keep in mind there's a lot of people looking for jobs in CO too, so there will be competition. I'd say move to CO if:

1. The outdoor recreation possibilities is something you plan to take advantage of
2. You want to move up a few rungs in the career field. Denver is a pretty great place for people who want to advance but it can really start to wear on people who get stuck in a lower income and watch the COL eat more and more of their paycheck.

The only place I could never find a job in was Denver.

I would not move without a job lined up first.

My advice would be to get a job in retail or the service industry as soon as you arrive so that you will have some money coming in while you spend your free time looking for your career job. That way you'll have at least some money coming in in the interim.
