If you can find a good job in Cleveland, Id stay there.
I am seeing jobs declining in my profession...allied medical health...and yes, medical isnt the great thing its supposed to be. People say, Oh, but there are so many medical jobs. I'd like to know WHO they talked to, because the employers, the coworkers, the headhunters, and the job ads tell a different story.
I am pissed I have to move for a job. I like trees. I like the northern culture. I like going to the lake, even to just look at it. I don't like the dry vacant desert.
I don't need to live in California to feel fulfilled. I am mad I have to move my kid out of a good school here, because I have virtually exhausted everything.
If you think it's gonna be better out west, good luck.

Default Tucson Is Fine!

OK .. I lived in Tucson for 10 years and it is not bad! I also lived in Phoenix (Scottsdale). It is a college town, very artsy and laid back. The people are nice and chill. Of course if you live on the southside you have your crime and gang bangers. What city doesn't? There are very nice areas of the city. It si kind of one of those cities you just have to see. I would rather live in phoenix then Tucson, just because it is a lot bigger. Let me know if I can help you with any other q's!

Why don't you try and start your own business instead of always being the employee complaining about no jobs????? Just a thought

Default It's All About Personal Preferences

These postings are very valuable to read the good/bad about living in Tucson; or any area for that matter. The final decision has to be based on what a person is looking for. Some like the desert environment, others do not because they want more "green" around them and obviously deserts are not green.

Some freak out having to deal with all the critters....insects, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, scorpions, coyotes, cougars, etc., etc. Some love the extreme heat and having just one season. Others love four seasons, even with having to tolerate cold winters/ice/snow.

It's all about what is right for each of us. Before I relocate, if I do, I would spend as much time as possible in the new area - and talk with the residents. Talking to the Chamber of Commerce or a realtor is a waste of time....why would they give you the negatives? And even then, after one moves to a new town, they still may not like it...or they could even up loving it.

It is very expensive and time-consuming to relocate. It's not something I relish unless I am so miserable where I am that all the time/cost to move is worth it.

I personally, would love to get away from the nasty winters, but would I be happy in the desert? That is something that only I can decide.

Tucson is really a great place to live, along with the other complaints though, I could point out that we have a huge illegal alien population. My biggest complaint is it stays hot to much of the year. But it is dry, and after visiting the mid west humidity I would pick Tucson hands down. If you are planning to move here I would choose Oro Valley. But if you like alittle more hustle and bustle you might want to buy closer to the University, which I might add is one of the top ranked Universities in the country. Hope you choose to give us a good look and good luck.

Zippy,
I know people who have started their own businesses. It isn't the simple answer many think it is...First, you have to have an idea or a niche, or something people want.
You have to know a LOT about that service or product.
And sometimes, someone starting a business takes a loss for years before even breaking even.
A lot of people think of the small business owner as some Bill Gates, and while those do exist, most business owners have to work hard to break even.
I do not have any idea for a business. I would have no idea what to manufacture to competively enter a market. I have no new idea.
I need to have a decent income now, and starting a business won't happen soon enough.
You have a good idea for starting a business that will turn a profit immediately? Let me know...I need an income now.
