Hi, my name is Troy. I am moving up to SF this coming summer for school with my girlfriend Caitlyn. Last summer we visited the city for about a week and absolutely fell in love with it. We are from LA, and we are desperately anxious to leave. Its not like we hate the area, because we don't at all, we are just ready to start fresh in a new and beautiful place.
Now to get to the point. I have been feverishly looking through dozens and dozens of Craiglists ad's for a place, all we really are looking for is a room at first. I found some good candidates, but im little worried with a few factors. What is the work scene down there? Now, im just a student with pretty good work expierence, but im not looking for a professional job or anythng like that. More along the lines of a cafe or sandwhich shop. Do I have a chance to find a job in those fields? Also, do you have any other tips on finding a place and actually settling down? We are going to have about 7000 saved up for the move, we are bringing the bar minimum with us, do you think that still would be enough? Im very excited to move, but i want to be prepared, and thank you so much for helping!

San Francisco has one of the lowest unemployment rates in California. If you are looking for a part-time entry-level service or retail job, you shouldn't have a problem if you're motivated.
