    I am trying to move out of MD to VA. If anyone anyone has any job connections let me know. After being able to OC in VA and knowing what type of laws they have compared to MD and getting familiar with the VCDL, I think its time to move! I am looking for a job relating to the computer field or an entry level construction job. If you PM me I can give you details of my skills, thanks.

    Do you have a college degree of any kind in computers or electronics?

    (Oh, where I work is not gun-friendly, can't even have them on the property).

    I work in Test Engineering at my company, looks more like you're network/web design experienced. Our IS/IT/Network department hasn't posted anything job-wise, or I'd PM you for your resume and contact info.

    I've been looking on monster at jobs around this area (Charlottesville), I remember seeing some with keywords that match many in your resume. Try searching for jobs in this area. Be forewarned though, having just recently moved here myself, I was shocked at the salary vs cost of living for C'ville and the surrounding areas. Was a little higher than I expected or researched, but the housing market is slowing, so it's becoming a buyer's market.

    Good luck in your search!

    You know what, I'm going to PM you anyway, My company's growing and I'm not 100% sure what they're looking for, but you could browse the careers website and see if anything fits. We actually have someone starting next week who's moving here from MD (He's originally from C'ville though).
