A couple on Craigslist.

I wouldn't bother unless you have a definite job lined up, you will burn through $4000 in a hurry. Employer like to hire locals that have an established history here.It is a tough nut to crack. It really pays to have connections in this town as well. I would bring a lot more than $4000 if you were going to do it that way, say several times that. It helps to have a clean background to it will make getting jobs easier too. Another thing to consider is the Unemployment rate here is very high, in fact it is tops in the nation, so consider that when you arrive here, it wont be easy to get a job, Many people have gave up looking for work, good luck plan on a long vacation here before getting any work but if you are persistent it can work.

You were just making the point that they are black, enough said, thread ruined, proven racist by your own typing. Those of us in Illinois who have "neighbors" who are nice are grateful that you want to leave.

I assume you are young (very young). $4000 seems like a large sum of money to you, it appears. And we can tell that you are excited about the change of scenery and the life adventure you are beginning.

If you are on good terms with your relatives in Las Vegas I would advise you to arrange quarters with them for some time. This will help your finances to stretch out in case this is needed. Anyone here who has lived on their own for a while will tell you that the one thing you can count on is that some things will go wrong, especially where money is concerned.

Get used to their rules: it shows maturity and good decision-making skill. And down the line, you may need their assistance again some day. Don't be a freeloader: help with chores and offer to do tasks above and beyond what might be expected of you. Look for a job every day: that IS your first job. If they are older and well-established in their jobs, don't be afraid to ask their advice. I have employed hundreds of people through the years and I can tell you that there are tricks to being hired.

One of the benefits of being young is that you can take risks that older established people can't. It seems from your posts that you don't have far to fall. At the same time, you likely don't posess the life wisdom of others older than you.

Good Luck and keep us informed on your progress.
