    I've traveled all over the US and parts of the world and I'm pretty happy living in the South. I couldn't imagine moving out of it. I LOVED San Francisco, but wouldn't want to live there. San Diego also. I like Washington D.C. too but wouldn't want to live there either.

    I've never been to Huntsville, but I have been to Chattanooga and San Antonio and Charlotte. I love all those cities too, but would probably only consider living in Chattanooga if I had the choice.

    But hopefully, I can stay right here in Greenville as I just love it here.
    I've heard so many people from the North tell me lately that they can't get over how friendly and helpful perfect strangers are here and how much easier the pace of life is and how happy everyone seems to be. I feel like I found paradise when I moved here. I just hope that it being number 4 on the list of cities to live doesn't mean that paradise will get spoiled as happened to Florida.

    Re: Job Interviews

    I had another job interview today and would like some advice. I saw somewhere that a thank you, follow-up letter should be sent. I don't remember this from the olden days. Is that proper protocol now? Should I send one?

    Trying to reenter the job market is a pain.

    veejer - I figure anything that makes you stand out in a positive way is good. So it sure doesn't hurt to send a thank-you letter. That could be the one thing they need to decide in your favor. What do you have to lose?

    It's fine to send a follow-up thank you letter to remind the potential employer about you and in it high light your most pertinent qualifications as they relate to the job you are seeking.

    Just don't ever call them and ask them if they have filled the position yet and if they plan on hiring you. We get those kind of calls all the time and they make you want to throw their resume away (and actually that does happen sometimes).

    bbnbama Huntsville, AL is considered a big city now? That is so funny because when I lived there in the early 90's it was literally a big hole in the wall with nothing but the Arsenal there and some very questionable housing. Haven't been there in over a decade, amazing that it's grown that much.

    Absolutely send the follow-up thank you. It sets you apart from others and shows that you follow through on things.

    You will be lucky if you GET to relocate to Alabama. Auburn is a wonderful little college town. Huntsville is beautiful and has a great history with the Space and Rocket Cenbter and Museum. I live in Birmingham. It's also a lovely city with lots of attractions. festivals and special events. My husband grew up in the San Drancisco area and he loves living in Birmingham. We often visit Chattanooga (and honeymooned there last December). It's a wonderful place to visit or live too!

    This should have said "Space and Rocket Center" and "San Francisco."

    Always, always send a thank you note after an interview. It may be considered "old fashioned," but I think it should just be considered professional.

    Good luck, veejer! I remember when I had to interview for jobs after I lost a job I'd had for many years. It was hard to get into the swing of interviewing again. It can feel overwhelming, but I'm sure you'll be fine.
