Two months ago my husband and I moved from Montgomery, AL to Tampa, FL, so he could take over the family business. I gave up a good full time job with full benefits since I couldn't transfer my job to Tampa. DH and my in-laws told me that I would have no trouble finding a good job once I got moved here.
The good news is that DH loooves his job and his weekly 500-600 paychecks and being closer to his family. I however, am not a happy camper. I've struggled to find work, I've received countless rejection letters despite a Bachelor's degree and over 10 years of work experience and the only position I could secure was that of a cashier at a big box store. So now I'm part-time, no benefits, with a topsy turvy schedule and making a fraction of what I made in Alabama.
I feel like Florida was totally oversold to me. I gave up a good job to get my husband back to his family and took a crap job while he rakes in the big bucks. Am I the only womanthat has ever gone through this? Do DH and his family really appreciate the sacrifice I made to he could be here? Anyone else move to Florida from out of state and have a hard time adjusting? Does it ever get any better?
