Are there jobs in Sacramento or is it really hard there to find a job? I live in Las Vegas, NV and it is impossible to find a job here. It's like the great depression here. Is it any better in Sacramento to find a job? I would actually be living in the Citrus Heights or Old Fairoaks area. I used to live there years ago and thinking of moving back there. But I first need to get some idea how hard it would be to find a job there or in Sacramento? I am basically low-skilled and do janitorial work. I used to clean private schools. My only medium skills are with web design and web marketing. Any help would be apprecaited! I want to try to find out if it would pay to move to Sacramento since I can't find a job ib Las Vegas or should I just stay in Vegas and are things just as bad in Sacramento? Thank you all for your time.

Frankly, Sacramento is no better, unless you have connections in the Kalifornia Bureaukratik.

Sacramento is also more pricey, real estate wise, than Vegas.

You can look from there--check CraigsList jobs, monster.com and the Sacramento Bee classifieds online. Lots of labor, telemarketing, sales, low wages. Lots of part-time.

Statistically, it's a little better here. 8.5% unemployment compared to 9.6% in Vegas. But, in any case, I always tell people that the only job that matters is the one that keeps you employed. Look at jobs from there, as cb73 said, and take the opportunity if it presents itself. Cost of living will be a little bit higher here, mostly because of housing and taxes, though low wage earners don't feel too much tax bite. This link also says that utilities are cheaper there, but I don't actually think that's true, since your consumption would be a lot lower here:Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed
If it were me, I'd start at the places on the list here: Unemployment Rates for Metropolitan Areas I'd submit that Sac has a higher quality of life (assuming one has a job) than most of the petroleum-booming places low on the list, but I'd be more concerned about getting and keeping a job to gain experience and minimizing gaps in your resume.
