As if South Florida businesses or politicians follow rules

OP.. have you started applying for jobs, just to test the waters?

FYI - a few employers of mine immediately "filed" resumes from applicants who moved here without a job lined up.
They felt it showed a lack of responsibility.

I've been networking on LinkedIn for the past three months, contacting people in the industry in which I work now to let them know I'll be relocating, and to keep me in mind should anything open up - but that I will also reach back out as the date gets closer.

____________

I appreciate all the advice to stay put, but that's simply not an option. I've been living with family and while they're happy for the new addition - they're not open arms to having myself, AND a baby residing with them - rightfully so. My best option for help and support with the baby is where the father is and that's in Boca, he right now does not drive, which is why Boca is where I need to be - he needs to be able to get to me via public transportation within a hour or so, so I'm not carting my son around daily for visits, etc. I am looking outside of Boca, but not within more than maybe 15 miles in radius.

I also have no intentions of telling any employers that I just had a baby, I'm not legally obligated to - and I wouldn't dream of shooting myself in the foot - legally they can't not hire me because of it, but they'll find 'something else' as to why I wasn't a 'good candidate.' When I get there I'll take whatever job I can find to hold me over until I can find something within my field. I am also very aware that salaries range from area to area. Also, my unemployment would come from Maryland, because that's where my employment has been - not Florida.

Again, I do appreciate all of the responses.

Are you expecting to quit your job, move out of state, and get unemployment?

Do you understand you'll need at least $20K to get settled and tide you over until you get a job? (IF you only go (2) months without work)

What about health insurance for yourself and your baby?
Are you planning on the state picking up the tab for that too?

This is really upsetting to me.
Why do you think "the system" aka the tax paying people of Florida, owe you anything when you arrive?
