    I would save a few more bucks. 5k can go quick easy. you have a security deposit, all your utilities, then your actual rent, not to mention gas and food, health insurance since you will be without it. You could all the sudden have car issues and need repairs. 5k just doesn't seem like enough.

    Before I got my job, I worked a third shift position making $12/hr and I applied every night all night. I sent out about 100+ apps and traveled about 5,000 miles in about 3 months before I finally snagged a position. To get a decent job now days, it takes dedication and committment. Plus if you want a solid job, they look at past work history and if you take a leap of faith and can't get anything and working as a bar back doesn't really make your resume shine. I would try to shoot for something near the states around you. Then if all else fails, and you really can't find ****, save up about 10k and then shoot for the stars and head over to ca.

    Sf bay area has lowest unemployment in CA right now and one of the lowest in the USA too.......it would be a pretty easy move from so cal. Tech companies are booming here at the moment and the surf isn't to shabby either......hasn't been under head high in months at the more exposed spots........

Everyday Im applying to different places, but have not been successfull. I'm starting to think maybe I should pack up my things and move on, explore and meet new people. Me and my buddy are looking to maybe head out to the left coast and see whats out there. We both have about $5,000 each and are looking for an apartment, 1 bedroom, doesnt matter. Obviously I would prefer closest to the ocean. I was just wondering if anyone has any insight on the job market out there, maybe websites for places to stay for cheap, or even someone I can talk to, or someone looking for roomates. I have no problem picking up a waiting job in the time being, till I find a good job. Any insight I would greatly appreciate it!


    Cheers!
    The poor economy and terrible job market is due to the current failure in DC ruining the USA. If you really want to use your degree and work, come November, vote for a proven leader who will undo all the failed policies that have been inacted during the past three yrs. In the meantime go surf as much as possible.
