Although living in a small town has it's down sides, I love living here. All of my family is here, as well as my friends. Everyone is just right down the road. Every knows each other. One of my favorite parts of living in Bowdon is how the town comes together during hard times and tragedies and how everyone helps each other through it. We also LOVE our Bowdon Red Devils!! High school football games are a major appointment in Bowdon!! What can we say.... we live in the South!

To live in Bowdon, GA is to step back in time. It is a wonderful place to raise a family. It is a quiet place that has good schools. It is close to Carrollton which has big box stores and many restaurants. I have only been a resident a few months but my family and I really enjoy it.
As noted, the town is a small one. Due to this there are familiar faces, meaning a gift of having more trustworthy employers and employees. One could get a job at the body shop, car washes, gas stations, grocery, salon. It all depends on if you can creatively find work here. As a high school graduate, the jobs will range mostly in the minimum wage, which is to be expected. As for the job outlook, it doesn't seem to harbor an increase or decrease in opportunities. The best bet here is probably to find a job at the local drugstore or family-owned business.
