Probably not.  Although I do like DC a lot.  In fact I considered moving there with my ex back in 2001 when we both got laid off from our dot-com jobs in Chicago.  But…we happily landed here in Portland, Oregon.

I’m not looking to pick up and move to DC but I wanted to share this article with you if you ARE looking for a job.  DC seems to be one of the few cities of opportunity in the US right now (From what I hear, the Dakotas and Nebraska are still OK — So if Omaha or Sioux Falls are calling your name, check them out!):

If you can’t find the job in your hometown, it is NOT the end of the world to shake it up a bit.  DC should maybe be on your list?

Good luck!
Brian
