It starts getting hot here typically from June through the beginning of September. By late September, it begins to cool and the nice fall colors start appearing in October. It is rare to have an 80 degree + day here in March. In March, it ranges from 40's to 60's. The 80 degree weather starts in May. We even hear some northerners stating that it is cooler here than they originally thought.

Right now it is 75 degrees in my area..... Just had some rain in the area.

What area of government are you trying to go into? I am a former local government worker, was laid off and have not been able to find another government job in four years. I also worked for the State of Georgia for 8 years. If you want to work in government try to get a job with the Feds. They pay way more. State and local government pays VERY low in Georgia unless you are in management, and even then the salaries are not competitive. I knew plenty of folks with degrees working in government here making less than $30k in Georgia. $800 in rent may not seem like much coming from NYC, but when you are making $13 an hour or less, it's still not affordable.

As you contemplate Atlanta bear mind that the salaries here are much lower than NYC.

yea, its not, but i think they still pay more than nyc, adjusted to col, many govt jobs here start at 35k
30k is bs tho of course and i wouldnt move for that unless its temporary and a good career prospect
i don kno what area yet, maybe corrections or probation, prolly not police or maybe jus some regular state job, and feds jobs are def nice, but its next to impossible to get em nowadays, all the vets come before u

Trust me they do not pay more than NYC here. You really need to do your research as far as that goes. One of my friends worked for the state for 10 years straight and never saw $30k a year. I worked for the state for 8 years straight and never saw $30k a year.

Director positions in state agencies don't even pay $100k a year and some of the attorneys I used to work for in the state didn't make $40k, so that should tell you something.

Minneapolis/St. Paul is a lot more diverse than St. Louis. None are as diverse as the ones I mentioned or Chicago, but Minneapolis doesnt exactly lag in that department either.
St. Louis definitely has diversity, and it's definitely affordable
