Hmm, around here?
With those credentials you should be able to land a job flipping burgers or cashiering at a convenience store with no problem. But if you insist on staying in the same line of work I'd suggest moving somewhere that has a much larger technology corridor and a much higher median income.

Are you kidding? Uhm, their name is KDS, I think if you're serious, I'll look it up. I'm employed but mupy son in law isn't ...... He recently left that security and fire equipment company. Anyhow, the back of the KDS truck said NOW HIRING, so I yelled at the driver at the red light and he said great place to work, called the number, the lady left me a voicemail the next day....... You're experience, they'd jump on you like , well, they'd jump on you.... I just erased her voice mail I think..... They are what is it? Quest.... Comquest. KDS is just a company that subcontracts wiring up houses.... But dude, you're hired. Name your price
