You stated you got your cna license out of state are you sure it can transfer to MI? You may want to look into that. Maybe start looking online at job websites and see what is being advertised in terms of jobs.

Real jobs are few and far between and would likely go to locals anyway. My husband and I are looking to move out of Michigan right now. We have jobs, but there is virtually no chance of advancement. At my husband's job they have gotten rid of many people, they do not replace them though, they just have people take on more tasks to bridge the gap. At my job we are constantly short staffed by design to have the fewest amount of workers to have to pay.
If you are really set on moving back. Be sure to have a job already lined up.
You have just described most cities and states in the country right now. When we lived in AZ a couple of years it was exactly as you describe above, and in talking to friends who live in places like Atlanta, Myrtle Beach, and Richmond, VA, it is exactly the same there too. It's not like things are recovering miraculously everywhere else but Michigan and that Michigan is in a perpetual deep hole by itself or something.

This is not a one state recession. Michigan may have been hit hard in the manufacuturing segment, but there are more jobs here for RNs (I'm an RN), for example, than there are in many other parts of the country. The OP is a CNA. Assuming that her license transfers to Michigan or she can do so fairly easily, she will be able to find work. There is always a need for CNAs. If and when you leave Michigan, you should make sure that your job(s) are secure before you invest in a house or put down really deep roots. Just because you move to another state doesn't guarantee that companies there aren't downsizing and trying to save money everywhere that they can. It's the new American way, and it isn't limited to any one state.

I saw these two posts one right after the other, and it struck me a bit funny.

Lol...it really varies from person to person. For some people its just flat out easier to find a job or get promoted. Your right on with expertise, motivation, and other external...(and even internal) forces. Some people can go anywhere and do anything, while some could go anywhere and do nothing. Maybe its just destiny.
