I need an honest assesment of the job market in Biloxi/Diberville areas. Will be relocating in the next month and looking for something that will be steady more so then high paying. Just realistically could i find work in a reasonable a time frame or are jobs next to impossible to find as they are here in MI.

The Biloxi area has an umemployment rate of 7% versus 15% in Michigan. By comparison Atlanta is 10%. That said, 7% is high and not good for a job search. Government seems to be the main thing growing these days, and on the Coast that might include NASA, the military bases, and perhaps shipbuilding for the military. There are also casinos which may be hiring. Healthcare everywhere is growing so that's probably an option.

What skills do you have should be the first question and what sort of job do you think would be enjoyable is the second.

Don't know if there is a lot of demand, but check this site and look under CAREERS. They currently show openings for craft workers and other skills.
