Check the department stores, as they usually hire for the Christmas holidays.

Also if you're younger check with the Coast Guard recruiter - we're always looking for a few good people. Ask him about the open rate list if you've served before!

The county I live in is reporting close to 15% unemployment. If laid off, I think I'd have a hard time finding a new job in my county. I currently work in the neighboring county. We're currently trying to hire about a half dozen positions, but are constantly struggling with HR to just get the jobs posted....

I am also a UNIX / Linux sys admin in Ottawa, Canada, and I've been out of work about 6 months now. Tough market out there at the moment, which is why I'm looking to get out of high tech.

Seems to still be lots of jobs for programmers. And project managers both inside and outside of high tech.

The D.C. metro area has probably one of the better job markets. Last I heard we're down to below 6% unemployment, and according to the Labor Dept, "The largest over-the-year employment increase occurred in Washington-
Arlington-Alexandria, D.C.-Va.-Md.-W.Va. (+56,100)" (Sep 2009 - Sep 2010).

oregon and washington are right there with california as far as unemployment goes. as far as i can tell, the mid west is doing quite well. north dakota is (and has been for a long time) in a surplus. lots of jobs in the big cities.

Don't move to Canada unless you;re in the oil industry. I did and jobs are hard to come by up here. I got lucky in the end but I had to totally switch career paths to do it.

A great place to check for jobs in WA State is www.go2worksource.com it is the state unemployment website but companies can post for free. I am in HR and use it a lot to find great people.

Check out USPS they have a non career position Rural Carrier Associate. It is part time but a good way to get into a Govt job.

My employer (in Los Angeles) pays pretty well, and is currently looking for two top-notch Java developers. PM me if interested, so I can score myself a referral bonus.
