It's hard to say without knowing more about you - but I have heard they are all better than average in terms of employment. Personally, I love Colorado - but I haven't been to most of the other cities you mention.

It's hard moving with no job. But I have been so frustrated sometimes in my current living environment that I have been tempted to do it (I currently have a job). I can understand people wanting to leave - sometimes you just need to go.

Try to at least have money saved for 4-6 months living expenses while you look for a job and enjoy getting to know your new home.

No Texas cities?

Oklahoma City is probably the most similar to Texas for jobs.

I agree and would add Denver as my other top choice as well. True, the unemployment rate isn't as good but it's a fairly diversified job market and in my opinion the most appealing in terms of livability on your list.

So the Dallas area would be good, then ?

I see you've listed only western cities. Any reason for that?

Yes, I would definitely add Houston to your list. Perhaps Austin and Dallas, too....
