Thanks for all your advice Islanders!!!
I have been researching for my move to STJ by reading these message boards for some time and it has really been a big help. People seem willing to give advice on relocating and what to expect once you do move. I will be arriving in St John in a few months and will be looking for employment and I just know things will work out. As with any move, you can expect the unexpected... but with people willing to point you in the right direction, it makes it easier to find your way to where you want to be.
Thanks again and best wishes- Sara
