Hunting for a job isn’t easy. It’s especially not easy when you’re applying out-of-state and are currently viewed as “unemployed.” It’s hard to express to potential future employers that I left my last job on good terms in hopes of finding a great job in a new city.

He’s that kickstart I’d mentioned earlier. We often dream of doing big things, but when the moment comes we fall back to where we feel comfortable. I could stay in Jacksonville and be happy enough. OR, I could be with the person that makes me the happiest and together experience a new city, new people, new stories…
My next big move is coming soon.
So, if anyone knows of a good place to work and live in Atlanta, hit me up!
