Both have pros and cons. It really just depends on which lifestyle you prefer. Some people like the quiet friendliness of a small town, others like the rush and hustle of a big city. It also depends what kind of work you are looking for and whether or not you have experience in that industry. Small towns will probably have more trade career positions available but most of those kinds of jobs mean travelling quite far to and from work every day. Big cities will have more office positions and retail opportunities but most of which will require experience and there will be hundreds of other applicants looking for the exact same job as you.
As far as lifestyle goes, cities are much more convenient as many shops are open late on selected nights a week, and many stores are 24/7. Busses and trains run through the night and you can have pizza delivered to your apartment at 1am. Small towns are quieter.. you can sleep in in the mornings without being woken by car horns and the air is generally fresher. Small towns also tend to have speciality shops as opposed to chain supermarkets. Eg: a bakery, a butcher, a fish market, a fruit stall. Some people like buying locally sourced produce.
In the end it really just comes down to your personal preference- if you love the city and are prepared to work your a$$ off waiting tables before you find your dream job, then go for it. If you like small towns and would rather live somewhere where you know everyone and can stop in the street to catch up with a friend, then chose that life. Both can be great and not so great. I've lived in both situations and I really can't choose! But if I really had to I'd probably choose city life.
Small town. And when I say small, I mean you have to drive 20 mins to go to the corner store. Regulations and skill sets are less strict in those small towns, and there is less competition for work. There's something like 30 million people in new York... Imagine trying to find a steady job opening, then competing with hundreds of people for that one position, with some probably having more experience than you. As opposed to maybe 2000 people living in a small town. Yeah there's less jobs available in general, but you have a better chance competing with maybe 5 people for a position... If that
Big city, more people, more companies to service these people hence more job opportunities in any field you want. The jobs requiring less qualification to do the job, attracts more people as these are easy jobs. Jobs that are skilled specific would have less people applying for as candidates with the skills will be considered for interviews. Small town tend to have less skill specific jobs to go around.
Oh DEF a big city!! To get a job. My friend just actually moved to New York City and found a job in Manhatten (I know I didn't spell that right... lol) Cities have a lot more businesses and companies, that there would be so mnay job oppuntunities. Unlike a small town where there is just one store of a brand and usually the places are downsized a lot so less people they need to hire.
And I can speak for myself. I haven't been able to get a job for 4 months. I'm smart, physically active, and a quick learner. But so many other people have more experience and I never get hired. And I live in a big city (Toronto) and it doesn't even have half the population of ny
Certainly either...I'd consider traffic, yr round weather, close to mountains/ocean, etc
A small town becasue it cost more to live in a big city
