How is the San Diego Job Market? - page 5

Hi, I'm researching a possible career change into nursing (from landscape architecture) and have a few questions: 1. It looks like the job market isn't so great right now. Are nurses (with BSN's) having a hard time finding jobs... Read More

    Time to consider relocating, possibly out of state... I hope you realized graduating nearly 9months ago that you are seeking opportunities in one of the top 3 markets in California. Honestly, browse the California forum more, doesn't matter which part, all the answers are gonna be the same- it's tough as a new grad everywhere. Better start putting applications outside of San Diego, and California soon. Scripps specifically, hires a significant amount internally for the new grad programs.

    Unfortunately relocating is not an option for me. My husband's work is here and there is no way he can transfer. I will keep in trying.

    Good luck to you gikg. I think I've seen you on a number of the same forums as myself. I was at my wits end with this job market after a year of searching. Is there any way you could "geo-bachelor" it.. Meaning you live apart for a year while you get that coveted year of experience?

    My fiancÚ is stationed here in the San Diego area and we decided that it would be best (for my sanity, really) to start applying outside of California. Luckily I landed an internship about 2.5-3 hours away from our house in a different state, so seeing each other on days off won't be wildly difficult. It will stink being away from each other, but after I gain my experience hopefully I will have more options for employment in CA... One can do anything for a year, right? 😁

    (I understand this may not be even close to an option if you have kids!) Sending positive thoughts and vibes your way.. Best of luck!
