Hey, how about areas that are still pretty hot for getting hired? Here's where my email box says is the best around me.
- Tucson, AZ. Not a bad place I guess, but nothing impressive. I mean U of A is there, and that's about it. Tons of jobs.
- Remote and/or small (read: crappy) desert towns such as Yuma or Bullhead City seem quite desperate. Some are only a few miles from Vegas if that is your thing.
- Prescott (and Payson), AZ - in the high piney woods, seem like quite nice small towns and only an hour and change from both Phx and Flagstaff. I turned down an EM job there as a new grad, which hurt real bad, because I would retire there.
Phoenix is about average demand, I guess. There are now three PA programs in the Metro, two of them quite large, so that may change...
Where would you recommend someone who is mobile to find work easily?
