My wife and I are sold on Austin and are planning to relocate by the end of the year. I am a project manager with a PMP certification with 14 years in I.T.
I came out of school with a MIS degree, got into web development and kind of made my way to were I am now which is a project manager / test manager for a large system conversion at a bank working with HP and Oracle.
What is the best way to approach looking for employment when I am not living in Austin? Should I go through a local headhunter / recruiter? Is it going to be a brutal search? Should I be looking for niche or generalist positions? What are your tips for jumping into the Austin job market for the first time?
