I'm mainly wondering which city would be better for a younger person wanting to move without a job. I have around 10,000 saved up and I have an income $1100 a month(without a job) from an annuity. I only have a high school diploma and an AA. I'm 23 and my work experience is mainly data entry and retail.

I've narrowed my search down to these three cities, now I'm just wondering which place would be easiest to find a job (I know it will be hard to find a job most places), basically any job other than fast food to start out.

Thanks

Denver would be the most affordable and arguably the nicest overall in my opinion. I would think that job options in retail might be somewhat readily available as well as data entry positions, though perhaps those in the Denver forum could shed some better light on specifics.

Of the three cities, currently I would rank, for jobs, Denver, Philly, Chicago. For location, Philly, Denver, Chicago.

One of the reasons I liked Chicago is because it's pretty easy to get around without a car, which I think helps make up for the higher cost of living.

Having a job is obviously more important though, I'll definitely post something in the Denver section

Like Chicago Philly is pretty easy without a car. Though a job is probably most important

Best of luck on your search

Chicago and Philadelphia are two cities that are easy to get around without a car. Denver, while maybe doable, won't be nearly as easy.

Yeah I don't mind driving, It would be cool to not have to drive because it would be a nice way to save money but I'd be fine either way. How is the job market in Philly?
