I just recently finished my second year of college, and am looking to move and get out of Florida, after searching and searching I found Bristol, don't know if anyone is from the area, nor have I ever posted on here so I don't want to sound stupid, I want to be able to move there with a job already in place, don't know where to start. :/

Where to start? Finish college first then look for a job up here in CT. Look in Bristol or as far as Hartford, waterbury and New Britain which are all commutable from Bristol.
Unfortunately, Bristol doesn't have many jobs in it, except for it being the home of ESPN, my hubby works there and loves it though. But it is very hard to get a job there as you can imagine since everyone wants in.
If you are looking for any kind of nightlife, since I'm assuming your young then Bristol may not be for you, though you could get a rental relatively cheaper there then other places. You could get a 1 bedroom in a decent area of Bristol for probably 800 a month, which isn't bad at all for CT.

Just be sure to have a job in place before you move.
You didn't really have any specific questions, so I hope I helped.

Excellent advice, however, make sure you do some type of internships while you are in school so that you get some kind of experience. Another great thing is if you can become a Resident Assistant, corporations sway towards choosing someone with some type of managment on your resume. Good Luck...
