About to start a new life in Glasgow; need to be bombarded with advice
June 28, 2010 10:33 AM Subscribe
What should a young couple moving to a new city know? Know of any decent job/temp agencies worth checking out in Glasgow? What about gigs/concerts/pubs/clubs? I'd even appreciate some words of advice regarding living with a loved one for the first time. Anything at all will be received with much thanks!

So I have just finished university, and my girlfriend and I received 2.1s. We've both had quite a few jobs (bar work, admin work, working with children, etc.) and we can't wait to start a new life in Glasgow. My girlfriend lived there for a year so has quite a good (albeit outdated) knowledge of night life, places to visit, restaurants, etc., so I'm more interested in what we should be aware of starting a new life in general. I'm looking for long, wordy tales of personal experience - can you help?
We're both fully aware that the job market in the UK is a bit buggered, but at the same time we know that there are good jobs to be had if you're a bit opportunistic and resourceful. As graduates we want to look for quite a good starting job but there's no reason why we wouldn't take up other jobs like bar or office work. I have some savings that I've figured out will last us a few months if we're both unemployed but I'd rather not wait that long...
I'm sure I've missed some key details out so please ask for more info. We're both 21, can both drive... That's about all that comes to mind right now. Thanks in advance.
