I'm a pretty recent college grad with a few years of experience in my field (human services). As of right now, I am pretty well locked into a job that I hate (and I do mean *hate*), and I am feeling unfufilled and hopeless that something else will come along. I'm starting to feel the need to establish myself somewhere new, somewhere where there are a wide variety of jobs and the cost of living is relatively low. Living in a place with a low crime rate, and lots to do in the surrounding areas is very important to me. Right now I am looking into Oklahoma City, but I feel like I may be overlooking a lot of good places outside of the Midwest region. Where, in your opinion, are the best places to start a new life?

Go to indeed.com

Type in your job description and leave the city field blank.

Choose one that looks epic and is in a big city.

Apply.

Wait.

Pray.

Don't move without a job.

Check out Sioux Falls and Omaha. They have a very low unemployment rate and cost of living. Minneapolis also has a lot of jobs, but the cost of living is higher. But don't move w/o a job.

I know Human Services jobs typically aren't of the highest salaries so would consider places with a relatively low cost of living that are still relatively large cities with a varied job market (and different from where you are now).....especially since you're young and unencumbered. I'd recommend Denver or Atlanta which are two completely different cities with a sizable young professional population, lots to do and a low cost of living.....particularly for housing.
