If you just want a low wage retail/restaurant/call center job to start out with, you can probably find that. JMT is also completely correct that many landlords will not rent to someone without income. Some won't even take the full lease amount in cash upfront. You want to be extremely careful you don't come to TN, can't find work, then have to go back home having blown lots of money in the process.
I really appreciate the words of caution. One thing I didn't mention before is I'm moving with a lady friend, so there would be 2 incomes.

We are definitely not moving without jobs lined up, but are looking for an idea of where to look for those jobs.

If there are two incomes, obviously that helps.

Citigroup in Johnson City is almost always hiring call center reps, so is Advanced Call Center Technologies (ACT). They are usually paying $12-$14/hr.

That would at least get you started.
