It's not all roses and unicorns here. I wouldn't move unless you had a job lined up but on the flip side, employers are more likely to hire someone in state/live locally. It is very competitive here, you have native/local Texans competiting with transients for jobs and that makes it more difficult.

what field? If you are a RN you might find one in a week or two. Otherwise, have about 8 months of living expenses tucked away. Or smarter yet, land a job before you move. I can't believe all the people moving down here without a job!

Because no one will hire you, if you aren't living in the area already, so why not..

EXACTLY - nobody will even consider you if you are not local. They don't either have the time to wait because they need somebody now or they don't know if you are serious ?? Also with so many local candidates, why bother! I feel as if you have no choice to make the committment and give it your best shot. Even in a "good" economy employers do not like relocation situations a whole lot.

I do have quite a bit of $$$ tucked away. I definately need to live on a little more than faith to get by. However, my faith is going a long way in this matter.
