Re: states
I heard that Austin in particular is a great place to find a job.

But yes, I don't think that I would be able to survie a summer of Texas heat. There are very mild winters there, but you cannot escape the sun during summertime.

And who is getting hired?
Five states may be leading the I.T. hiring wave, however I wonder exactly what kind of candidates they are hiring as employers looking for I.T. talent tend to **not** hire anyone **not** male or over age 25.

Re: A very taxing state
Reading comprehension is lacking in some.  How sad. If you read the article and the cited report you would realize they are the top 10% of states, not all of the states with growth.  Not very interesting if they just list every state in the union.  If you follow up with the source, you will find double the amount listed, and follow up with the sources's source you will find more details...

Re: A very taxing state
5 states out of 50 for IT job growth? That's awful. Show's that the US economy is still in the dumper, if only 5 states show significant growth in the technology field. It should be true in all 50 states. How sad.

A very taxing state
Interesting that these states have business friendly governments. Also Texas and Florida do not have state income tax which is certainly an incentive to move there. In NY the governor is up for re-election so we are getting loads of propaganda about how business friendly things have become. The reality is that NY is tax and regulation hell and things are not getting better here with so many New Yorkers moving to the states mentioned in this article. People realize that the in your face government which panders to the unions and welfare are a lost cause.

I may have to move my family to Texas. Nice in winter, but the summers can be tough.
