You'll need to be a journeyman or you can work as an apprentice. Since you already have the necessary hours you may just need to take the test here and get your license.

call around to the different contractors and explain your situation. My dad was in the same spot you are - ran the job, knew the job, but didn't have a license. Then they started tightening up regulations and he had to take the schooling and tests. That was up in Michigan though - good luck!

Denver's job market is very competitive as a whole with the amount of in-migration and desirability of the location. I can't speak to your specific situation but I know there is a lot of work for electricians in Denver, though you'll be vying against a lot of other people for the work.
