Hi, im 21 years old and currently living in Michigan and will be getting my BBA in accounting at the end of this year; as you probably already know Michigan has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and its pretty hard to find any jobs over here right now. So I decided to give Orlando a shot and see how the accounting job market is. Can anyone help me get a feel if there is any availability of accounting jobs right now?

Right now we've got one of the top 10 worst unemployment rates in teh country. Later in teh year, who knows.

A heads up, employers around here generally won't consider people who don't live locally for jobs except for certain professional positions. (sorry, first year accountant isn't considered "professional.")

This is totally true...you have to live here to get a job. However, there does seem to be some accounting jobs around actually. My wife got a full-time position after we moved here with very little experience, but it took 2 months of hard job searching.
