I lived in Litchfield as a kid, and my wife and I are thinking about moving back to the Nashua area to settle down. How is the tech job market in that area? Do most people end up commuting to Massachusetts?
Depends on the type of tech. I know that the company Single Digits up in Manchester (they do network support for the hospitality industry) is growing faster than they can get warm bodies. Not sure about anything else, though.
I'm in the IT field and live in NH but my jobs for the past several years have all been in Mass. That isnt to say there aren't IT jobs in NH, it's just that once you get into the higher end of IT the jobs are much harder to find than in the Boston area. Lower end to Mid level IT jobs are pretty easy to find though.
What part of IT are you looking to work in? I know a lot of IT recruiters and can help you get in touch to see what is available.
