I'm in Seattle area and it's really really hard to find any job in any IT field. (probably due to the saturated IT people population in this region).
I'm serious about moving to other places(of course, pay from my pocket).
How is the IT job market in East?
East coast, Virgina, Atlanta( in Georgia)?
They seem have lower umemployment rate.
Do you think they are better than Seattle area?

I'm not sure if any specific survey has been done, but since the government sector is doing fairly well, my guess would be places like Virginia, Maryland, and DC would be better off than a lot of areas.

I've seen plenty of jobs in the greater Boston area (including VT and NH) and, to a lesser extent, the NYC and DC areas.

You can gauge things somewhat if you use the metro pages in dice.com.

Atlanta has been a down market since end of 2001. Some jobs are available, but they are for senior people, usually with 7-10 tech requirements - some Java-related, some MS-centric, and sometimes a blend of both.
Things are gradually looking better for the long term, but I was laid off for the second time a month ago. First time was due to company losing a business deal, second was due to company closing their doors. :roll:
Good time to work on certificaton.
Good luck hunting!
