Hello everyone. Right now I'm having a hard time deciding on where to move to next summer. I currently stay outside the city of St. Louis MO and I think it's time for a change for me and my daughter. My current choices are Dallas, Houston, or move back to Cleveland (was there during high school 2002-2005). I initially chose Cleveland because Im more familiar with the area and I feel more comfortable there knowing that some of my friends are in the area. One thing that keeps going through my mind is having an actual career somewhere and not having to move from state to state. When I make this move, I want it to be my last unless it has something to do with my job. I've heard that there are alot of opportunities in Texas so that's why Dallas and Houston are on my list.I will be graduating with my bachelor's degree in December and will be looking for more job opportunities. What will you all do in this situation? Go somewhere that you're comfortable in and settle or make the move to a city that you are new to in order to have a better life?

Don't move without a job in hand.

Depending on your field, you'll have a better chance of finding one in TX. Lots of us have left Ohio. Don't believe all the happy talk about the OH economy getting better. It's holding somewhat steady in healthcare and services related to the elderly and cancer patients, but that's about it.

I moved from Cols to Des Moines two years ago and doubled my income.

That what some people are telling me that are still there. They're saying the job market is fine and since most of my experience is in the human resources and administrative field finding a job wont be a problem. I know in Cleveland they did have a lot of jobs in healthcare related fields.
