Georgia

Georgia is a state with about as many positive qualities as the number of sweet peaches grown here year after year.

Not only will you be greeted warmly by your new neighbors – yes, Southern charm runs deep here – but finding a career you love will come easily, as Georgia is home to nearly 2,000 internationally headquartered facilities representing 43 countries, and with Fort Benning in the area, the state has one of the largest military presences in the country.

Your wallet will breathe a sigh of relief after a move to the Peach State, too, as rent, gasoline and property taxes are all cheaper than the national average. Plus, with a number of beautiful sandy beaches and nearly 50 state parks in the area, your options for outdoor recreation are vast – did we mention the average year-round temperature is 62.5 degrees? And if higher education is in your future, look no further. Great colleges and universities, like the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University (one of the state’s largest employers), offer top-quality programs that are sure to prepare students for career success.
