If you're planning to stick with customer support, you might not have such a hard time finding a job. As the other threads indicate, stick out of the projects and you should be fine. Plan to get a car, although the traffic sucks in many areas, public transportation is even worse.

You'll probably have to stick to the Metro Area, but as customer support you might find a job outside of it.

Also, keep in mind that PR has an 80+ temperature all year long (although I would swear the average is 90+). Depending on where you're moving from that might be a problem. And hope you like bugs and lizards, you'll live with them here.

Good luck with the move!

Thank you for your response.Yes,i have 5 years Customer Service Experience .Many people discourage me from my moving,but you have to take the chance.I m thinking about sticking to San Juan area because it may be more job oportunity and also i allways lived in the city.I m familiar with Ponce,but i think San Juan has more oportunities for me.as far as not being born in PR,i m not born in the US either but i ma US citizen Naturalized and i ve seen different nationalities in PR.Well,i do adapt well,and with Gods will hope i can find a job a head of time.
I m planning to come back for a visit ahead of time in november since i have not been there in more than a year.Thanks for giving me the heads up on job oportunity.Is San Juan a good area ?

I guess it would depend of what you're expecting of San Juan. If you're looking at some night life you'll be hanging out a lot at Old San Juan. What exactly would you want where you want to live? Something like hobbies and such.

I'll try to give to 2 cents so will the other guys at the forum. Which strangely haven't posted here already. They should be back with more comments as well.

A brand new, just built studio, will go for $200,000, judging from Ciudadela and Atlantis pricing.

You can always post an ad online. Public transportation is great within the metropolitan area. Outside of it (in the suburbs), where people on this forum usually tend to prefer, it is almost nonexistent.

I might post some pics of those projects I mentioned here. You are the first person to post wanting to live in the city (right?) Congratulations! You are the kind of citizen I am looking for. Go cities!

I will post pics of Ciudadela.

Well,i m very impressed that someone took interest in my add.Very beautiful apartments.Davesot are you living in Puerto Rico ? I have seen Dorado on your post .Seems like you are an interior designer or so.At first after i find a job,im looking to rent or to find a roomate before i estabilish and can afford to buy an apartment.

I mean seems like you are both familiar with the island ?I would have moved long a go if people around would not discourage me.I m very fascinated about puerto rico,and yes i love Ponce however being in Customer Service,San juan gives me more of an optio job wise.
