The FI and I are looking to move to Washington state – Seattle area. We’re tired of NYC and the rat race. I’ve been applying for jobs left and right and I just need some extra bee prayers/good wishes.
Applying can be so exhausting and discouraging but we won’t give up! Forget “if you can make it here you can make it anywhere!” It seems like NYC is the only place we can make it. We’re stuck!
Words of encouragement are needed too. I’m fading fast!

Good luck! I know how discouraging it can be to be looking for another job and not getting any response.
It can be tough breaking into jobs in a new town that you don’t currently live in, as a lot of recruiters & hiring managers tend to ‘play it safe’ with local candidates. I moved from the UK to Canada and, even though I applied to lots of positions before moving, it was only once I actually got there that anyone called me back.
If you and your fiance are able and willing to move to Washington, and are prepared to do some temping whilst you look for something in your field, you might find that you start getting those call backs.
Again, best of luck!

@NovaPotato: Thanks! We actually might have enough saved up after the wedding to support ourselves for a few months or more and we can look for jobs that way.
