Dallas is a huge haven for young professionals. It has been for the past 10 years. Lots of opportunities, both professional and socially. Austin as well, but Austin is a far smaller city.

Hey thanks for that....like I said have been researching Dallas and Austin....Just have come across a lot of bad aspects of the Dallas area...As I said size of the city really doesn't matter, my number one priority will be to find suitable employment...I did have a job offer in Omaha recently but the pay wasn't to well....unless I'm not factoring in the cost of living in that area...I may be to used to Australian wages!!!

Jobs are still somewhat plentiful around here, and you could get by for a time without a car, living inside the beltway.
I have an international driving license so if I need a vehicle it should not be a problem, D.C. area is not what I am after!
