I've been on job boards since graduating and nothing. Either they are scams where you can't make money or not what they are looking for. I did talk to my college and they said keep applying. Good answer huh? Yeah right I have loans to pay back and want to get a Master's also. In this economy it seems like college gradautes can't not find jobs. I know people who gradauted a semester or a year before me and still have not found jobs. They either are in gradaute school or still job hunting. I quit going to job fairs because they refer you to Internet and never call you.

Tempoary services can't help either. I have been to many and they even said they can't help because they don't have anything and laying off people. I went to some services down here and they don't help college grads so that leaves me screwed again. So I just surf the net and continue to look.

I may come down to visit on Spring Break to get a feeling for the city. I am looking at jobs down there. Thanks for feedback. keep it coming

What is the best jobs for college gradaute with a degree in Radio and Televison and Speech Communication minor. Does anyone know about Drew Charter school or University Community Atlanta Charter schools? I looked them up on Great Schools and the parents said they were excellent. Just wanted to hear from people on the board. Also how are the youth football teams?

I can feel your pain. I made the choice to leave Cincinnati, and I just got an MBA. Ohio's manufactuing sector has been hammered, and there is a mass exodus of people leaving the state. I think ATL will be a better market for you than Cincinnati, and I know a girl who graduated with a degree in Sports Management who couldn't find a job for six months, moved to ATL and stayed with relatives, and found a good job in her field in three months. She said she will never return to Ohio.

This is an old thread but I would like to reply as well since I also moved from Cincy to Atlanta a year ago.

So far, Atlanta is nice. More things to do, more places within reasonable driving distance to go to and more food choices

What I miss about Cincy though is the more laid back environment, less lanes and traffic in the interstates, quiet airport with much friendlier personnel, and my beloved Reds.

It's pretty tight most everywhere, so take whatever you can get... no matter what it is and what it pays. That'll open many doors for you, because you'll run into people that knows somebody that knows somebody. Who you know, and not what you know applies in this day and time more so than any other time in recent history.

I left Cinci for the DC region Twith hubby) we both were college grads and had a hard time finding more than the average csr jobs. Since that time we are doing great and have no regrets. I have friends that moved to Atlanta and Charlotte and the thing is to get the job and connections first.
