I would appreciate any info about IT jobs in Florida. I'm considering relocating there.
Thanks,
Calina

Let's put it this way. After 2 years, I'm still looking.
If you've got security clearance and C skills, you might find something down in Tampa Bay.
If you've got 5 years MQSI, 5 years Oracle, 7 years Java and 5 years RUP, Blue Cross MIGHT interview you. But only if you have ALL of the above and no substitutions like trying to swap SQL Server for Oracle <sarcasm/>
Bring ice. It's now 90� down here and will be until September. And if you find anything, let me know!

Thanks Tim! That's rather depressing...I was hoping for better news. I thought I'd rather go through a hot summer in Florida than another winter in Minnesota.

I live in the central florida area and Tim summed up the job market pretty well. Not much happening at the moment. Hopefully it will get better soon.

Hi Tim,
Sorry to realize you are out again. Could it be because those defend related companies in Florida concentrate into big gun and big missile whereas the Bush Administration and Congress prefer small but precise arsenals?
