I am going to be graduating in June 2008 with a degree in Business Management from William Jessup University in Rocklin, CA. Since my wife was kind enough to put me through school, I promised her that we would have her go full time to school to pursue her dreams after I graduate. The only concern that I have is that we will not be able to afford to live in California off my income (assuming the entry level pay is 36,000 dollars). Does anyone have any advice on whether I should job search outside of California do accomplish this goal or can I accomplish it while living in California? Thank you all for your help it is greatly appreciated.

It is probably possible to do in some areas of CA, but you may not be living a great lifestyle. I think you'd have a better chance of living in more square footage in a nicer neighborhood if you moved out of state.

What about paying for her schooling in California? You would have to support both of you and her schooling. Where "might" you find a job? Rule of thumb is about $1000/month rent budget if $36K? Lots of variables: where is job, where to live, where is school, etc.

Why not search for other places and crank the numbers comparably with California? Not sure how other states non-resident tuition works (should she study elsewhere).
