I know you guys probably get tired of the "moving without a job" question...but here's one more; I haven't seen much on this topic...so here goes...

I lived in Tallahassee for a year to attend Florida State and loved it, but since I was in school, I couldn't find a decent job so I returned to Atlanta, which is home. I am really tired of Atlanta, though, and would like to relocate. I have a bachelor's in psychology and a master's in information technology. I can't move currently - but - I am shooting for leaving the Atlanta area within 12 months, if I can sell my house. I am thinking I would use the money I have in savings to relocate, because I know it's difficult to get a job with an out of state address.

So honestly, how hard would it be for me to find a decent job in Tallahassee (especially since I'm not in school anymore)? I know no one can predict what would happen in a year, but I want to get the job market temperature right now in Tallahassee as oppossed to the rest of the state, which I know is awful.

I would also consider Jacksonville, so if you have any input on that area, I'm interested in that as well. I really want to stay in north Florida; I enjoy the "taste of winter" that North Florida has during Christmas.

I've lived in both cities, went to school & worked in Tally and have lived in Jax mosty of my life (currently as well).

As you probably know, the government & the universities are the employers in Tally. Your best bet is looking there, though universities are cutting positions.

Jacksonville is 10 times bigger with 10 times the opprotunities, same weather (a straight shot on I-10).

Your much, much, more likely to find a decent job in Jax than in Tally.

Though, there's not nearly the concentration of hot chicks...which is very important too, i know. Much more spread out in Jax.
