The IT job market sure seems to be retaining its post-boom tightness. I'm trying to find a job so that I can move in with my fiance this summer -- in Norfolk, VA. Despite my experience, skills, and recent Master's Degree in Technical and Scientific Communication, I haven't had so much as a nibble.
One thing of note I see more and more is that most government/contractor jobs require a CURRENT security clearance. I don't have one, so I'm out of luck on so many of these jobs... I can understand that an emploter would want to avoid the time and expense of getting someone certified, and I guess that as long as there are plenty of job seekers out there with current clearances, employers will avoid certifying new blood.
I sure hope I find something, though, because I really want to move this summer while my fiance is off (she's a schoolteacher... definitely not enough money there to support me while I look for work).
