I live in mn. But I am ready to move to another state that isn't has cold and snowy as mn. I was thinking of north Carolina, south Carolina, Georgia, Florida or Arizona or any other states that you guys have in mind. The only thing I ask is that there isn't that much change in weather because I don't like snow. I don't mind the cold. But the state has to have jobs in social worker or human service area because that is what my degree is in, have cheap rent, and not cold weather. The lowest the weather can get is 40.

I really like Florida but that is why I started looking at other states BC I have heard that Florida doesn't really have jobs. What is the weather like in Nashville. I never been there.

Florida is insanely humid. That might be too much of a weather difference for you. If you can afford California, I'd say go there. You can get cheap rent depending on where in CA you go.

I don't get how people can actually like the humidity, I feel like I'm going to die.

Many of the sunbelt "red states" don't believe in social or human services and have done everything possible to cut jobs/funding which will make looking for a job in your field next to impossible, especially from out of state. You might look at cities with more moderate climates that also have low unemployment rates as well as a low cost of living. Check out Virginia Beach/Norfolk, Kansas City or Cincinnati.

The pay for social work is generally low. I live in AZ and there are jobs in social work but the pay is laughable. AZ is a right to work state and wages are lower because the cost of living is lower. In AZ(phx area)social workers generally make between $25,000-$30,000. If you are single with no kids you can make it off of that salary. It's pretty affordable to live here with rent for a decent 1 bedroom starting at roughly $600/month. The weather in the low deserts of AZ rarely gets below 40 in the winter and RARELY RARELY below 35. Good luck on your decision!

Thanks Kyle. I will look into that maybe a different city will be better BC I lived in Columbus and I didn't like it. But I did like while I was there that it didn't really get cold and and wen it did snow it melted soon.
Buckeye yes I don't have kids . So it would just be me. I was down there before and I kinda liked it. But I am going back down there to see if it like it during the summer.
