What walkable (and safe) areas could I get away with staying at for a few months [so that I can buy myself time to find a job]??
I'm 22/F.
Also, what districts/areas would I be most likely to find work at with a BA?
I need to be near a walkable area that would also be easier than other LA areas to find a job at. thanks!
Average rental prices are 1200 and up per month and LA is facing a severe economic downturn. Moving anywhere with only 3K and no job or other resources is foolish.

If you are seriously planning to move to an expensive area such as LA with only 3K and no job, you need to be prepared to accept any job that comes your way even if it requires overtime.

Wow, that's a shocker. Who would have thought THAT would be the outcome of the OP's post. I personally thought it was yet another troll post, because it was simply absurd. 24F, $3K, no job...and "what safe area can I rent in for a few MONTHS". Man I was laughing so hard.

I just found her other thread and its hard to feel too sorry for her as she was well warned. Oh well. She will either accept any job that comes her way or go back home with the parents.
