How har has the recession hit the ATL job market?

Are there any ATL moms out there that can give me some insight on the job market up there. I live in Miami and I'm looking to attend college up there (GPC). I just want to know is it going to be as difficult obtaining employment as it is down here.

  • I'mnot in ATL but economy is only as bad as you make it to be.

    If you are in the right industry for work you are really not going to see it.

  • Like I said, it depends on your industry. I work in a pharmacy and the unemployment here is nuts!

    But it does not matter where in the USA you are if you have the skills that are needed for everyday life to go on.

    Im 8 months pregnant an was hired at my job because the industry is needed whether or not the economy sucks.
