Anyone know of any places on the east coast with jobs for the average person? Not getting anywhere here in Vermont, need to consider going to where the jobs are. Business/finance interest, no current degree.

Florida has fast food and delivery hiring everywhere. Not much else.

If I remember correctly, a thread earlier mentioned that Georgia was generating a lot of jobs, just after the much bigger top 4 states.

Much of the current job growth in this country will be low paying jobs partically under $20 an hour. We all know taxes and the COL in this country is rising so many are desperate for high paying jobs. The competition is high and there's not as many high paying jobs as we wish there would be. Is Vermont that hard finding a job? I know rural America is struggling but I'm assuming the Burlington area would have some decent jobs.

Are you at least going after a degree? It's going to increase your chances of finding one by a lot. The only problem is that it doesn't guarantee you a job. Nearly 1/3 have a bachelors degree and now many are going after their masters because of this.

I have been working on my associates degree, but had to stop going due to finances

best way to get an idea is to look at job websites like Indeed, SimplyHired and CareerBuilder.

I recommend think in terms of companies, not specific states. then apply to those companies for jobs at offices / plants in states that appeal to you.

Focus less on states and more on metro areas. Given the scope of work you're seeking along with qualifications I would point you toward cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbus and Cincinnati (I realize the latter two could be pushing the east coast definition for you). They're also on the more affordable end of the cost of living scale which should help with finding suitable housing on a salary you're likely to get started on.
