Moving to Florida from Illinois, looking for work in Psychology field,

Jump to last reply

Hi there! I'm writing this forum because I'm hoping to get back any useful advice about what I should do with my situation, which is this: I'm 22 years old, I just graduated with a BA in psychology and I want to move to Sarasota or Clearwater, FL. I'm looking for work in Psychology, so case management, youth worker, mental health; these sorts of areas. I'll be moving with my boyfriend (27) who didn't go to school, but has experience with siding and window installation, along with car dealer management. We have friends in sarasota that would let us stay for a bit to find work if we needed it. We have about 13 thousand saved and aren't scared to take the risk to move without work, but we don't want to waste all our savings. I've been looking for a job from Illinois and have had many nibbles, but no for sure interviews established. Many employers have called and have asked to set up interviews, but as soon as I respond with my availability or try to call them back, they disappear. We're highly considering just taking the risk and moving without having jobs in hopes that they'll come faster once were there. But, some first hand experience would be helpful. Anything about the Sarasota, Clearwater economy and lifestyle? Anything about work in Psychology; pay expectations or jobs I should or should not be focused on? Anything about costs of living or how much we should expect to spend on all this? Really, any information is helpful. Thank you!
