Possible move to Tucson, AZ

By RFink ·
When my contract expires I'm thinking of moving to Tucson. How's the IT job market down there?

My main area of experience is Windows adminstration.

Thanks for any info.

Geckos, snakes and cats

by NickNielsen In reply to Lived in Phoenix

When the Army stationed my brother-in-law in Hawaii, he says he had this conversation about finding a place to live:

"Never live in a house that doesn't have geckos."

"Why not?"

"If the geckos won't live there, it's got snakes."

I enjoyed the desert southwest

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Possible move to Tucson, ...

I lived in Las Vegas NV for three years in high school, and was stationed at Ft. Huachuca AZ near Tuscon for a few months in the mid-80's. As others have noted, it gets quite hot in July and August, and temperatures over 100 for several days or even a few weeks continuously are not uncommon. "But it's a dry heat..." Yeah, a frigging HOT dry heat.

One minor consideration is that Arizona is on Mountain Time, the red-headed ******* stepchild of the US time system. It also doesn't observe Daylight time, so BALTHOR would like it.

I believe Tuscon is a retirement destination, so opportunities in the medical field are probably available. Gotta keep those Boomers on life support :-)
