There are no jobs in Rochester, if your husband is at Kodak right now I'd get the hell out while you can.

Jobs depends on one's skillset, education and where they look. There are some smaller companies in the area and small and medium businesses are where most people work, not the huge corporations/companies.

That's Funny because as someone who lives out-of-state (I used to live in rochester) My Fiance gets calls from Rochester businesses who are looking to hire him, but we can not move until December.

That's a ridiculous exaggeration. There's about 3 months out of the year like that. 8 months of snow and below zero wind chill? Come on. We go entire winters sometimes without ever seeing below zero windchills. December, January and February can be tough. Other than that, people are just looking for a reason to complain.

I get calls from Rochester about jobs, rather frequently.

Hi, I'm not looking to start an argument. I wrote, 8 months of cold, gray weather AND some people like winter. I don't think mentioning that Rochester has below zero wind- chill is an exaggeration. I experience it every winter here. I wasn't trying to complain, just trying to be funny.I don't like to use this forum for "bickering."

We have looked around Rochester, of course, but we're considering moving to NC to be near family. However, it depends on what we can find.

I spend a week or two a year in the Tampa/St Pete FL area and it seems as if half the population (NB: hyperbole in action) down there is from Rochester/Western New York. Anecdotally, that also seems to be true of the research triangle are in Raleigh-Durham NC.

Really? I am curious, what does your Fiance' do?
We are from Rochester (Webster) and have been away now for many years, always looking to come back.
My husband has an MBA, is an Engineer, he can't find a job in Rochester to save his life.
His headhunters laugh at him when he calls and says "hey, can you just look again for us?".
I am terribly homesick and would LOVE to come home, we had an "almost" opportunity a few years ago, but they wanted to pay him almost $40K less than he makes now and although the cost of living in Rochester is much lower than where we live now, no one wants to take a pay cut like that. Even to come home.

My husband has almost 20 years experience as an Engineer,went to RIT and could pretty much name his salary here in the Pharm industry. Rochester can't touch it.....
So, who is calling your Fiance' ?
