Welcome To The Bitchery

Help me figure out my life, part 324.

As most of you have probably pieced together by now, my girlfriend moved out and away to California for a new job, and I will be joining her out there in a few months.

Something I'm really stressing out about right now is what to do about my own job situation, i.e. I don't know how to go about looking for a job in my new location. Do I try looking for one now? Or do I wait until I get out there? I'm leaning toward waiting until I get out there, but that also makes me super nervous. I'm just worried I'm going to run out of money before I can find a job. I know that some of this anxiety is due to the fact I was unemployed for a miserable 7 months last year, but I also know the difference is that last year I was unemployed in a small town with a stagnant economy whereas I'm moving to San Jose, which is part of a huge metropolitan area. How do I approach this job search?

I know it seems like I've been asking for help with big decisions a lot lately, but I don't really have a lot of people around me IRL right now so GT is the next best thing.
