Hello all and thanks for checking out out post.

We are moving to Virginia hopefully this summer.

I may have opportunities at two hospitals- either in Charlottesville or Harrisonburg.

My husband is looking for work in Technical writing. Any ideas if one city vs the
other maybe a better bet for that type of work? I am not sure what kind of industries
the 2 cities have or what big employers there is to check? Any suggestions?

We have a kiddo that will be starting middle school so we want to make sure there
is opportunities for him before we actually make a decision.

Thanks again for any suggestions.

Cj

What kind of technical writing? There is a Miller Coors plant in Elkton and a Merck plant there too. Elkton is not far from Harrisonburg. There are turkey processing facilities in the Harrisonburg area (Cargill, Rocco). Likely there are more. It's been a while since I lived there. And there are three colleges/universities in the area: James Madison, Bridgewater, Eastern Mennonite. Plus there is Blue Ridge Community College.

I don't know as much about industrial facilities in Charlottesville. There's UVA, Piedmont Community College, the National Ground Intelligence Center, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in Ruckersville.

Hopefully, other posters will respond.

Good luck.
