Is it harder to find jobs now because of the worsened economy? How does phoenix's job market compared to LA's and which city has more jobs and easier to find jobs? Which month of the year are there more jobs in both places?

When I find one I will let you know. You can go to Jobing.com to find out what is in the Phoenix Metro area. It is a great source.

It is generally easy to find "a job" in the Phoenix metro area. What is difficult is finding one that pays well. Watch out for that.

Has the worsened economy affected the job market much and make it harder to find jobs or not at all?

Default Job listings per capita

Well, I dunno about now but as of 2nd quarter 2007 according to Where are the Jobs? | Indeed.com Phoenix better than L.A.

I remember applying in the NY Job market and I couldn't find much even 2-4 years ago. They have a low jobs per capita. From everything I've gone through you have to move to the city first and then find the job. Only high level jobs would they pay you to fly in. It's very hard landing a job outside of your area even when looking on the internet. I've been turned down even though I was qualified for certain jobs because the employer was worried I would waste my time traveling there. I would have taken the chance because it was a good job for me at that time...

If you're looking for a job I would honestly assume you're going to find one, because when ever I would worry, what I worry about comes true.

Hope this helps a little...

Phoenix wages are pretty low, it's a right to work state (weak unions), finding a job shouldn't be hard, but you won't make a good wage, depending on what type of job you're looking for.

1) I can't afford to live here, born and raised.. this false boom has pushed me out of my town. Lots of jobs, good pay.. INFLATED cost of living

2) I need a change, being American/Canadian and visiting Phoenix before I loved every bit of it and it's where I've chosen to plant my roots as I start my career

3) I'm done with LITERALLY 9 months of Winter. Right now it's snowing, should be a foot by midnight.. it's almost MAY!!! I'm a heat junkie

There's more but that's the big 3, #1 I cannot stress enough. I can save $1000 a month instantly living in Arizona in a similar, if not larger home.
