My husband and I are looking to relocate to a bigger city b/c he was recently laid off and we are realizing the market in Nashville for his position isn't that great. He is a financial analyst and is looking for something like that or assistant controller/accounting manager positions. We have narrowed it down to Houston and Atlanta. Does anyone know what the job situation is down there, specifically for his line of work? Thanks in advance.

I sent you a PM with some contacts to try. Houston is mostly an oil industry but there are plenty of accounting jobs out there.

Thank you so much! I got your PM and we will reach out to them for sure. We have always used a recruiter with great results so I appreciate the contact. Do you like the Houston area?

I am a CPA but longer work as one, but I get calls and emails from headhunters all the time. The market is ridiculous for accountants, especially certified ones like your husband. What industry is his experience in?

He has worked in healthcare and a very large building supply company and also has almost four years of public experience.

If he is interested in insurance accounting, my company is usually hiring. We had several people transfer to other departments recently and have several openings that will be filled. I'll check on it tomorrow and send you some info if interested.

The market is great for CPAs, but expect that relocation won't be provided. I receive so many calls and emails that it's feeling like 2006-2007 again. However, most of them state that relocation isn't part of the package. Not to say it never is, but it seems to be the trend.

If you have big 4 experience, and are a halfway decent interview, you will do fine.
