Not here. Lots of discrimination in NJ in many ways.

Is it remotely possible that he was not the most qualified for the job?

I bet a lot of employers are skittish about hiring people with non U.S. citizenship status. His accent may certainly be exotic and great for casual social situations but for employers and businesses it comes down to whether they have to jump through extra hoops if they hire him.

He did apply for some jobs that he may not have been so qualified for, but he's applied for MANY that he's been told he's overqualified for. Didn't have a job for 3 years and that included applying at retail and all those lower level jobs than what he was used to doing.


He is a citizen now, but maybe employers think he isn't. I changed his resume to reword that he is a citizen and does not need sponsorship.

I was born and raised in Northern NJ. When I was 32 yo I moved to Phoenix AZ. I've been living here for quite a while and love it here. I never looked back. I highly recommend this area.

I think Denver, Minneapolis and Madison would all be good choices. They are all cheap prosperous cities that are fairly cosmopolitan, have a lot going on, and a generally accepting population. Denver is the gateway to the Rockies while Minneapolis and Madison both have plentiful lakeshore in the city, easy access to the northwoods and are at opposite ends of the Driftless Area which is underrated for natural beauty.

These suggestions sound best. It sounds like she's sick of the Eastern half of the country in general (people are more judgmental than out West). Oregon would work too....but the Twin Cities might be the best fit (when you add in museums & such).

I am sick of the east coast in general. It seems kind of the same mentality throughout. Of course, even to go out west and investigate new areas mean spending money on travel and such. I think I need to make an itinerary of some areas and get there in the summer.
