Default Thinking of leaving Albany area (suburbs) for Rochester (suburbs)

If you think we are insane, let me know. I never thought in my mind I would wind up in Albany, let alone consider further upstate.

We've looked around, my husband has been applying everywhere here and out of state and no one has had much interest. Rochester popped up a few weeks ago as a possibility and we have gone around in circles wondering where to move. Could this be the right place?

He's done a job search (not much at hospitals) and a few manufacturing places.

So far he had one call in Rochester but we are still waiting to hear on that.

He's in hospital inventory, material management (non-manager level, more like supervisor), has a back round in shipping, receiving, inventory, warehouse and stockroom as well for manufacturing.

I have a back round in Education but I plan on moving into something different. All in all, I just need a part time job anyhow.

I'm in favor of the area (suburbs not city) because the schools look like they will be able to help our son with Asperger's, the area is what we like (parks, forests, nature), good libraries, educated population, good shopping.

Rents are cheaper and the potential to own a house is a reality in a few years.

Also we don't have to change car insurance, driving licenses and so forth being from NYS. Saves on annoying paperwork and fees. Maybe car insurance will go down a bit-- I am not sure.

He can still get unemployment while we look for jobs, which is good but we want off that asap.

Downside looks like not many jobs, like here. And, yes, all that snow. But I've lived in Central VT with no stores and bad weather and no library to speak of. If live was okay I could deal with the snow and cold again.

Can anyone offer any comments or advice?

How can we try to hook up jobs or at least one before we move so we can rent somewhere?

Thanks so much for any replies.

Does his line of work have to be in a hospital? There are some Jobs, but it depends on many factors.

For you, perhaps you can look into private, charter and special schools/facilities like Hillside.

Thanks
I think we have exhausted everything on Indeed.

No, he doesn't HAVE to work in hospitals. He's done the same in manufacturing for years.

Based on what you stated, Brighton may be a good fit for you. Itís of the nicer inner ring suburbs. They have a top notch school district which has even been ranked in the top 100 nationally. The town itself (at least the 12 corners area) is very walkable and a number of services, its also close to the city so you would be as stones throw from everything in the area. Itís also close to RIT and the university of Rochester/strong hospital so a lot of college professors live there. Maybe one of the reasons that the education is strong there.

Also awl1964 has helped a lot of new Rochesterians who had the same situation as you. If you have any more question Iím sure he would be happy to chime in again.
