I’ve finally come to the realization that this area (central Pennsylvania) is so economically depressed right now that the only jobs available are for truck drivers and nurses. Considering that I’m neither, I think it’s time to look elsewhere for a job.
I’ve been thinking about Atlanta after talking to a friend who lived there for several years. To my understanding, Atlanta is a great city, friendly, warm, relatively inexpensive, and not too terribly far away from my family up here.
So, I’d like to ask for a little information from people that live there. How is the job outlook? Rental market? What’s the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment? How’s the actual cost of living?
What I’d really love is if someone could do me the favor of sending me the classifieds out of the Atlanta paper(s) so I can check out the apartment rentals and job listings myself. If anyone’s willing to help me out with this, email me and I’ll send you my address.
Also, for any gay Atlanta Dopers, what’s life like? I’m led to understand that Atlanta is very “new South”, but I’d like to hear from people that are in the middle of things on this one.
Thanks in advance to everyone who replies.
