Move where? Europe? Stay were you are, not only we don't have enough space for all of you, we are screwed too. Some people do succeed when they move abroad, but most don`t. And the ones that do succeed, it`s usually because they made sacrifices they weren`t making in their home country.
Personally, I`m tiring of moving between cities (and countries) with my family and having half of my family and friends scattered around Europe, just so we can avoid starvation. There`s a bigger difference between moving to make a good living and moving just to avoid the inevitable for a couple years, yet people still keep hitting on the "go to where the jobs are" note, like there`s nothing wrong with the world and there were enough jobs for everyone.
It's not simply moving to avoid the inevitable for a few years. It`s, if you`re in a DEAD END going NO WHERE then change your situation. YOU have to figure out what sacrifices need to be made in the meantime. My husband and I have lived apart while trying to get ahead. Yes, it was hard but most people can`t/won`t get their head out of their a$$ to think long term. You make sacrifices today to have a better future. And in the military, you don`t always get to move with your family, you are not always with your friends, sometimes you`re in remote areas and it sucks but it`s short term. I`ve said it before, people like where they are in life. They may complain but don`t do $hit to change it and that`s okay but just know YOU`RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE IN THAT SITUATION and you have NO ONE to blame but yourself!

"Just checked the job bank where I am and there are over 212 jobs listed that are currently paying over $32,000/year. "
And only 700 people applying for those 212 jobs.
