What is the best way to look for work in another city?
I am very open to relocating to any smaller community (50,000 or less). What is the best way to look for work in another state when not much information is online for smaller communities? I have 12 years of retail experience but have not worked for the past 4 years. Some of my education includes: Associate of Science Degree Accounting Clerk Certificate of Completion Business Administrative Support I Certificate of Completion Business Administrative Support II Certificate of Completion Customer Service Certificate of Completion Front Office Support Certificate of Completion Media Design Technology Certificate of Completion Medical Office Administration Certificate of Completion CCNA Certification A+ Certification Net+ Certification MCSA and MCSE Certifications Microsoft Office Specialist Essentially, I am to any job where I am qualified and am able to buy a home in a few years.
