Unemployed and Homeless in Phoenix???

Just considering my options.

[img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]Current State: Unemployed and very few jobs around this area. (Indy... if you have a job for me in Indy, please PM or email me!!!) Behind on the house payment. Have sold everything of any value to pay the bills, so have very little left to move. 3-Year-Old Boy and Wife is 7 months pregnant with Baby Girl...

[img]/forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif[/img]Possible Future State: If I'm going to be unemployed and homeless in Indy, why not load up what I have left and be unemployed and homeless somewhere I really WANT to live??? Indy is OK, but I've always wanted to live in AZ.

Question to Readers: Where does an Unemployed and Homeless guy live in Phoenix, and are my chances any better/worse of finding a job there???

[img]/forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif[/img] I await your Wisdom. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif[/img]

Re: Unemployed and Homeless in Phoenix???

do you have any equity in your house, if so, sell it and use the money to try a new start in arizona, provided your family is agreeable to moving [img]/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

Re: Unemployed and Homeless in Phoenix???

I'd club a baby seal to have a job in Phoenix. I am still looking. Great area, affordable housing, good wheeling, no rust.

I want to go to Phoenix too! if anyone has a line for a PR/Marketing/Communications gig in PHX drop me a line!

Re: Unemployed and Homeless in Phoenix???

Kinda my impression of the place last time I was there, but I suppose there are some nice places if you look. Each city has a good side of the tracks and a bad side. OKC has been good to me.

Very true.... I could have just been delirious from the heat stroke.

Us Californian's aren't used to dealing with such heat [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

It does have it's ugly side. I would not want to live here in the "low rent district". Not a nice place... Heat's not THAT bad, but you gotta learn to adjust for it.

Re: Unemployed and Homeless in Phoenix???

I can't take the heat either. I want to move to the NW.

Besides the heat, PHX is a great place to live. I actually live in a suburb called Peoria.


If you are going to be homeless I would wait till winter [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]


Jobs are everywhere unless you think you are worth to much. A $30k salary is very easy to get down here and if you are skilled at what you do, $40k+ is not uncommon. I've been down here 5 years and the wife and I make over six digits. Most people just don't take a lower paying job while they are waiting for a better one. Most places down here will eventually pay you top salary if will wait it out a year or two. I have known several who try to live here for a few months and then move before anything great kicks in. The only problem down here with jobs is that there are too many indian jobs and not enough jobs for chiefs.

Housing is very inexpensive too. Renting is real cheap if you want it to be. Houses are very easy to buy as well.

The best part is the "Big City". Everything you want to buy can easily be had (with exception to a th400/208 combo [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ) for a very good price and that makes working on cars a dream come true [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


Good Luck
