How is the job market in Atlanta?
I currently work for a large university and will possibly be relocating as my fiance has just received a job offer from a company in Atlanta. Most of my experience is in special events / marketing / communications. I would love to find a job with a local college or university in Atlanta or would be open to working really anywhere. :) I'm willing to take an administrative job that incorporates my skills (event planning, marketing, etc.) if necessary. How is the job market in Atlanta? Do you think I'll struggle to find a job? Thank you!
