@B.F. – most states are bankrupt these days. You go where the work is in this type of economy. CA is not the most expensive place to live in the US and the weather is great in SoCal.

Well B.F., live in the gulf coast of Florida (another ‘broke’ state, even though there’s a ton of money here, as with Cali) and have been studying Management Information Systems. I did great on the A+ exams and am working on Net+ and after that MCSA/MSCE, Security+, and perhaps Cisco. I taught myself computer building and programming as a kid and have been fiddling with tech my whole life.

I fear that we’ll be breathing oily fumes for the next few years around here and I have to get out. I have to go somewhere warm and friendly. So Cal here I come?

Ok, lots of jobs in So. CA… who cares? Who the heck would want to move to a highly taxed and still bankrupt state like CA.

@BF, you forgot that CA is the center of the universe. Mark hasn’t done this before and I would hope he doesn’t make a habit of it.

@HPNick. I’m not sure where you’re coming from. The CA state government is in dire financial straits. CA may or may not be the most expensive place to live in the US, but it’s in the top five!

Psssst ……. Hey ……. I hate to tell you but actually the whole world is broke. Liabilities exceed assets. The banks loan out 10,000 for every 1,000 they actually have. Now, people can not pay back the money that the bank pulled out of thin air because the economy is not growing. So….. I say, dig in anywhere, if you do not have roots it is a great time to see every city you can via IT contract. Do you REALLY know what it is like in Tulsa?

Sometimes I feel like those 1940’s cartoons — looking into a mirror, seeing a donkey looking back …

Dice Holdings used to be located in the Silicon Valley area of CA [now with an APR-2010 U/E rate of 11.7%].

My bad! Even their location has changed, too. They’re primarily located in Urbandale, IA [a suburb of Des Moines with a U/E rate of 6.8%] and NYC, NY with a U/E rate of 8.8%.

Tell me — just how bad is it, employment-wise, in Urbandale or NYC ? You haven’t seen U/E until you’ve lived in towns and cities where the rate of unemployed exceeds your state’s total population! For example, El Centro at 25% or Los Angeles at 11.7% or Santa Ana at 9.7%; ALL which are higher than anything or anywhere in IA!

So, if employers are just itching to hire IT workers; WHY aren’t they [hiring] ?!
