    Jacksonville, Florida is NOT a good city for college graduates! Education is not valued here and black people have a difficult time finding good jobs that pay more than $10/hr.  Jacksonville (and Florida as a whole) lacks culture and the good ole’ boy mentality still reigns. This place has a plethora of low-paying retail, factory and receptionist jobs.

    Also, Jacksonville is not really a city, it’s more like a large town. I’ve lived in NYC, Dallas and ATL and Jacksonville does NOT compare in education, jobs, culture, economy or nightlife. Most people I’ve encountered that moved to Jacksonville from other parts of the country are very dissatisfied with Jax once they’ve lived here for a few months. You will be in for an ugly culture-shock. Jax doesn’t even have a decent university! All of the good universities are located in other areas of Florida, and that tells you something abut Jacksonville.

    Yes, you can buy a house relatively-cheap compared to other real cities, however, the trade-off is the low wages. Don’t move here unless you have hard skills in accounting, medical or technology. Otherwise, you will be pigeon-holed in low-paying jobs.
