I am unemployed living in a small town with nothing to offer and I have been unemployed for a year. A family friend wants to help me get a federal or gov job but said i need to consider moving to do so, and I would love too, but I will have no one to help me with my 5 year old if I do.
He recommends I consider moving near DC because thats where all the jobs are. Now of course I wont do that until I get the job, but I am trying to figure out how I will handle taking my son to school, commuting to work, and getting back in time to get my son from school or after school care? Not just in DC, anywhere.
If you have some info, please share. Ideally it is better to stay near family, but thats my situation now and there are no jobs here.
If there is another city you recommend please share that as well. My future looks bleak if I stay where I am.
