There are plenty of agencies, just not enough jobs to go around for all the applicants. PLEASE have a secured position before you move here, and enough money to support your family (including emergencies) for at least 6 months.

The employment counselors are paid according to placement and salaries, so you can bet they all work really hard for you.

Best wishes and good luck, I hope you find something down here!

dreaming: May I also amplify NancyC29's advice, secure the job first and have some cash saved. The cost of living was a surprise to my family when we relocated here a year ago. It's wonderful to live here (sometimes like living in a vacation fantasy-world!), but it was, on average, 35-40% more expensive for everything from where we came from in Houston. This is from milk to gas to clothes and homes.

I don't know where you're relocating from, but might want to keep that in mind. I wish you luck!

Getting a job outside the county little alone the state was hard years ago and has not changed too much, it depends on what field but typically Florida is not relocation friendly and you will often tend to see "Local candidates only" listed in job ads.

I would not recommend anyone move to South Florida unless they had plenty of money and/or a solid job that paid extremely well lined up to support the high cost of living.

I relocated to West Palm with my employer 2 years ago. Luckily for me, things are still looking promising. But my brother moved down here last summer and hasn't been so successful. Out of frustration, he started looking at other options and ended up starting a Work From Home Business. He's did so well, that I invested in my own start up business. I work for my employer 40-60hrs a week and 20hrs for myself. My brother is working his business full time. It's up to you how much time you want to put into it.

I'd strongly consider looking into this as a strong option. My brother's frustrations spear-headed a great thing for us. It could be the answer you're looking for also.

If you'd like to get more information, contact me at info@DesireMeetsOpportunity.com.

So for someone possibly moving to the area for graduate school, how much savings is enough? I am a single mother of two girls and will be going to graduate school. At the moment I am just trying to pick the best school and area. Thank you for a response.
