I won't move because my entire life is here, all my girlfriends are here (I'm latino and I love my latina women......yes...I ball like that, lol), and I couldn't leave my mother alone here. I might consider Miami though.

Anyone else with advice on my situation??? It would be greatly appreciated!!!!
If you aren't willing to relocate under any condition, you're handicapping yourself.

It's fine to want to work in a certain area, but it will make your job search significantly more difficult.

While I do understand that finding an entry level position is a lot easier in other areas, to me at least, it's not worth being somewhere else where I'm not personally happy. Especially if I have to spend a ton of time taking exams, I'd at least want to be with my people (and my ladies...lol) when I have free time.

I'll just continue with my exam path, and I'll better up my programming skills. It will be a fight, but I plan to fight it, and I hope others here can give me advice.

You could start somewhere outside of the city and get some experience and then look for jobs where you want to be after a year or so

I don't want to leave my mom alone unless there are tons of latino women I can hook up with.

Never, ever, ever make important decisions about life based on women you're not married to.
