No Experience Necessary
Question by Ashley Mendenhall: 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?

In Atlanta as everywhere else the job market is struggling. The best possibilities would be for you to ask around as soon as people where you work know you are leaving and see who knows people at the Colleges and Universities around Atlanta. As you probably know in the education world even more than other segments the best jobs come by personal contacts. Check the website of every educational institution in and near Atlanta and see if they are posting employment opportunities or at least get the name of the appropriate person to whom to direct a personal letter with your resume. (go for the head of the department vs human resources when you can).
