    Norfolk, Virginia Beach..Job hunt??

    Advertisements
    Hey I was wondering if anyone has ever tried job hunting in this area. I am moving in a few weeks and have been searching online and there seems to be quite a bit out there but no one wants to hire someone from across the country. Any insight?

    Been trying for the last year... That's all I have to offer. lol

    I'm going to be moving out there with out a job. But you will be competing against a lot of military preferenced women.

    Yeah thats what i've been noticing too. I've only been trying since about May. People keep telling me it will be easier once I get out there but I am still nervous. What kind of jobs have you been looking for?

    Trust me, I think I was very lucky.

    Just keep searching and don't give up.

    I searched on craigslist too, but becareful cuz some of those are scammers

    I only look for federal and state positions as I am in a career federal position already. Mainly I do HR and Admin work. Unfortunately, veteran's preference get's preference over my lateral transition. A lot of jobs are also popping up as with accepting applicant's "in commuting distance only".

    Thanks for the insight ladies. I only have about 3 months of savings that im going out with and im worried if that will be enough to last until I can find a job even if it is like food service to get me by.
