I will be relocating to Maryland next year. I heard alot of good things about it. First and fore most I'm black and black and CT don't mix well. People up here in ct are bigots and their are alot of older people here. It's boring, its dead, its connecticut.

I want to live in a more diverse enviroment where people are more outgoing, accepting and there's plenty of activities to do.

I'm concerned with two things; first is employment. I work at a Nissan dealership as an entry level tech. I graduated Lincoln Technical Institute and will be getting my a.s.e certification next year june.

I am also attending college for my engineering degree part time so I'm looking to transfer my credits from Manchester Community college to a college down there in Maryland.

With my a.s.e and some of associate's degree completed how will I fare in the job market down there? I'm 23 btw so I know my age would work against me.

I think you would do well in a similar type of position until you had your degree. I would talk to colleges beforehand though and see what transfers over since it is out of state.

I'm hoping I do well because I thought I could do 2 years here in ct but I'm not going spend 2 years being miserable. At the most a year and a half but not 2 years.
