Hello all,

I'll be in the East TN/WNC area for a few days from 19 Apr - 24 Apr interviewing for a possible job. What do you suggest my biggest bang for the buck/most productive time be spent doing?

I could:

- Apply at some jobs (any ideas where?) $12 - $18 range, know of any good job openings? State, county, city govt openings? Eastman openings?

- Apply/tour college's (GI bill money for college) any suggestions as to schools to look at in E. TN for nursing or radiology, ETSU? Others?

- Home shop, area familiarization, I drove around for 2 days looking at homes last time I was down, it's a big area, didn't accomplish a whole lot.

My thoughts are to focus on trying to find a few good job openings and apply for them and to take a tour of ETSU and speak with the nursing dept head about trying to get into that program. I figure if I can't find a good job, perhaps I'll try to get some better skills.

I know that this is a broad request, just looking for some ideas so that I can narrow it down, get a few good ideas and do those while I'm in the area.

Thanks

Tony

Well when we were up there for a potential move in the future, we first looked for an area to live that we liked then we looked outside surrounding that area as to what there was for work. I would focus on your living area first and just keep close proximity to a decent size town for work. Familiarize yourself first because you don't want to be stuck living in a run down area or out in nowhere land just to be close to your job. But then again, if you get a job first your one step ahead of the game as i hear it's quite tough to find work in TN.

Well I just arrived in NC at my sisters house, I'm going to head over to ETSU tomorrow and check into a few things, maybe stop by the VA to look into the job situation, etc.

I have a job interview in Asheville next week, I did my job interview in Atlanta today, won't know the results for 2 weeks.

I drove thru knoxville today and over 25/70 from Newport to Weaverville, NC it was a very scenic drive, only bad thing was I passed at least one house that was flying a Nazi flag, white supremist (sp?) I guess.
