Thousands of job seekers across the U.S. are wondering if they would be better off looking for work in a new location. The question is where?
As unemployment and foreclosures continue to rise, stocks keep fluctuating, and cash-strapped state and city governments move to increase taxes and trim services, many people are finding that careers and communities they once believed secure are no longer dependable. Either they have lost jobs, are in fear of losing a job, are stuck paying more mortgage than their homes are currently worth, or have seen their family’s quality of life evaporate. For those troubled job seekers who are willing to relocate, many places still offer career opportunities.
