Hello:

Here we go again, another Californian looking to relocate to Arizona. I'm interested in how the job market is out there? My resume says i'm an Administrative Assistant/General Office/Receptionist.

I am looking at Phoenix and surrounding areas for possible employment opportunities.

I know someone who is looking in the same field, is well-qualified and has put in dozens of resumes in the last few weeks with no results whatsoever. So I think the job market is very bad right now. The fallout from the housing collapse has lead to layoffs and hiring freezes in both the public and private sectors. Many applicants are chasing the few jobs out there. I think you better stay put for a year or so if you have a job where you are now. The only bright areas would be in the medical field and maybe teachers.

Phoenix economy is fueled by growth and growth depends a lot on what is happening in California. The Phoenix area will bounce back when California does as so many new people come from that area. But until people in CA and other areas can sell their houses, things are going to languish here. AZ is seeing some recovery in the low end market and I understand that sales are rebounding strongly in some parts of CA. So maybe, just maybe, there is light at the end of the tunnel. This housing business is getting in the way of a lot of people's dreams.
