I know the economy is bad overall, but I think we're a little better off here in Louisiana. I'm making a huge roa trip and plan on looking for jobs along the way. I am an electrician with industrial background. I'm looking for areas I should focus on or avoid.

DC is an area you could focus on. Our economy is pretty strong right now.

DC = Washington, DC, along with the nearby suburbs in northern Virginia (aka NOVA) and the Maryland counties around DC.

You can shop around, at no cost, for your line of work on Craigslist.com without leaving your home.

So basically you're just looking for someone to tell you the industrial/construction industry in CO is good. You sound like you've already made up your mind to move for other reasons and want validation. I doubt you will get that.

I have relatives in the real estate and construction business in Colorado and compared to last decade it's dead. Very few projects, tight budgets and deadlines with all the frills cut out and a lot of unemployed people. But if you can find a solid job, go for it.

Yes per the original question. It was posted in the Colorado section. I'm wondering if one area of Colorado is better for this sort of thing. Is there any industrial work up there? Paper mills, refineries, oil, gas electricity, that sort of thing?
