Quality of Life Posted On: 1/14/2012 12:21:40 PM
Orlando has a fair to good quality of life, depending on your education level and if you can find a professional-level job. I have lived here for 8 years. It was VERY difficult to get started here. Orlando is really a small town, and has a small town mentality. The way to get a job is to know someone, unless you are in a career that is really competitive, like engineering, computers, finance, etc. Once you get that job, keeping it can be rather political, as Florida is a right to work state, meaning you can be fired for any reason, or no reason at all, and they don't even have to give you a reason if they do fire you. On the plus side of things, it is a very clean and pretty city. There are good restaurants, and things to do, and it is not that far from either coast. The singles scene is a bit iffy. Many people here are not goal oriented. If you like the weather and can find a job that satisfies you, give yourself time to make friends.
