Hello Everyone I'm from michigan (hence my name) and I am looking to possibly move to Nevada. The economy has been horrible here in michigan since 2001 and has never shown signs of getting any better. I recently received my bachelor's degree in Human Resource Development and I'm hoping I can find something in my field in this state. I am 25 and single, so I'd like to live in an area with an active social scene (Las Vegas perhaps?) and many job opportunities. If anyone has any suggestions they would be most welcome. Thanks

I would advise you against it. Salaries here are very low. You should pick a city where education is respected and appreciated. I'm a retired Math Teacher who moved here two years ago. I dislike it here and as soon as the housing market returns, I plan to move back East!

The only places where you will find substantial HR operations are Las Vegas and Reno. Vegas is far and away the larger.

If you want a somewhat softer climate with winter then Reno. Vegas is hot in the summer and cool in the winter but snow is a rare thing.

Vegas pays reasonably well for professional jobs. Not to the NY or LA standard but pretty good by Midwestern standards. There will be a glut of hiring over the next few years in the Resort properties. The job scene is weak at the moment but will turn up later this year.

We have a standard thing for those considering Las Vegas....

Welcome to Las Vegas

Softer climate in Reno? I guess you have never been here in the winter?

OP, come for the right reasons, and money should not be one of them. We tend to have a boom and bust economy out here. Right now we are in a down cycle. Living in NV tends to be a lifestyle choice. The people who come to remake it, often leave broke or frustrated that it does not change here "for the better". It is what it is.

Like someone mentioned on another thread, it's not just Nevada in a down cycle. It's the whole U.S. And some other countries as well.

I think most states are hurting right now. Utah where I moved from. Texas where my son lives and Oklahoma where I live. Let's hope everything gets better for everyone. Of course its a buyers market so if you are in the market to buy you should.

Exclamation moving to vegas? WHAT?

I'd say check into the casinos if you plan on moving to Vegas... but remember, there are 75+ other qualified candidates with experience competing for the same job. I would say wait until the economy gets better before you move out here. Especially if you're just starting out. You don't want to get out here and a year or two later your savings is gone and you're without a job...

Hello fellow Michigander I moved here from Michigan two years ago it seems the Job market has fallen dramatically since i moved here. Houses are much more expensive and the pay is lower. If you are considering a move find a job first them decide if you can live off of what they offer.
