Hello! My name is Marie and I’m from Chicago. My husband grew up in McKinney and we are planning on moving to the Dallas area over the next year. He is an attorney and I’m in HR. Does anyone have any ideas how we can network with Dallas professionals virtually? Is it tough to get a job in the area coming from out of state? Any advance?

Made that exact move in July, 1 you're not alone and 2 LinkedIn is your best friend.

Searched and applied to multiple jobs a night for about 3 weeks + reached out to multiple friends of friends in the area. Dallas is growing quickly and there a lot of open jobs atm.


There’s so much movement here, I don’t think that’s difficult but it does depend on your flexibility in work location (remote/hybrid/in office), at least from an HR lens. LinkedIn in is definitely a great place to start!


As obvious or outdated as it may seem, I would try and utilize LinkedIn for networking. You can use the job search to find companies that you are interested in, even if they do not have openings in your direct field. I always recommend, reaching out to a staff member of interest for an informational interview.

Also Facebook groups are still useful, if you are on Facebook.

It sounds trite, but Meetup is a good tool as well. With COVID and all I've seen some virtual meetings on there.

I used Meetup when I first moved and had pretty good luck with it. I don't think finding a job will be too hard, best of luck with the move!

Nine months in and already feeling so unmotivated. Busy season was tough but nonbusy time is even worse.

I’m a creative in Europe. My creative output has been consistent and I have been lucky enough to have won a bunch of awards at the big shows. All is well. But somehow I keep on feeling the urge to relocate to the USA to work on a bigger scale, and to feel the thrill of a new challenge. I have some opportunities over there, actually. Are there any Europeans working in the USA right now? In which way is it different? Do you make less stuff? Which cities are recommended? Any advice would be great.
