How is the Economy doing where you live ? Available Tech Jobs?

Post by makxp77 on 24th February 2010, 5:21 am

I was wanting to hear from everyone how is the economic situation in your town and also regarding Tech Sector in your area?

I know in Akron, Ohio 20 Minutes south of Cleveland Ohio it is very bad , stores are emptied and the home of The Goodyear and Firestone Tire companies, you will find very few IT jobs. Only ones left are Programming and SQL that are needed, local insurance companies Allstate and Progressive all outsource IT work now to India.

My computer business went from 6 employees (including myself) to just me and a tech with a secretary. I was making 62k my first 5 years in business now Iam only making 22k , most computer shops in town have closed down or moved out of state! Thank god I saved money and stayed in my apartment all these years!

You would think Computer Business is recession prof?
