    Yes. Southerners love it, no one else seems to like it. Southerners don't seem to like Californians or Northerners either.
    California - the land of the fruits, nuts, and flakes
    Southerners - ignorance, rednecks, and hillbillies
    There's some truth to it all. Doesn't mean you won't find some of both in either place.... it's more about the overall sweeping beliefs and attitudes. These are the negatives, there are more positive ways of looking at it, of course.

    Oh ok, my bad.... I missed that part.
    I would personally stick to the big cities if I could find work there.....
    SF, NYC, LA, possibly Vegas for great entertainment. Could probably find service jobs in Vegas that pay decently. Hotel jobs are plentiful in resort areas, but they don't pay much. I would spend my time wisely and only spend it in places that will offer me the best experiences.

    Okay, stupid question:

    Are issues finding jobs that pay $10-15/hr a general problem or only when seeking employment with little education? If it's a general problem, then damnnnnnnn.

    working in a restaurant, although if your english is not so good, it may be tough to find a position right away. You noted graphic design, but to be honest those positions are quite competitive to get, I think.

    I would seek something secure and reliable at a lower pay scale if you can. Perhaps if you come over with an academic goal, you can get a fellowship or stipend of some sort (uncertain of your history, my apologies)

    I used to make $15/hr assembling electronics. Not much skill needed other than the ability to solder. People saying you need considerable skill or education for that wage are just plain wrong. Maybe you won't make it in the fast food business, but that's why you just need to look a bit.
    You lose.

    It's not that hard. It's hard to find a job anywhere right now, but wages don't have much to do with it.

    There are help-wanted signs up around here, in various retail spots. A job could be acquired today. May not be a high-paying job, but it will get you off the streets.
    There are also tons of listings and openings for well-skilled people. Problem is, it's hard to find prospects who fit the bill.

    Well, the South is not known (comparatively) as a wild, party place, unless you're talking about sports. It has more of a family atmosphere. The Northeast and the West Coast cities are more where the action is, more vibrant nightlife, more cosmopolitan, etc. But with action comes the risks of city living. Anyway, I'm biased.

    I know you just want a short stay here, but it sounds tough to make it work out financially. Don't know where you're going to stay if you don't stay with relatives....An apartment (flat)?

    The San Francisco Bay Area is the nicest place I know of in the US. Marin is beautiful. The city itself is really nice. No end of things to do.

    No idea about jobs though.
