It's really good in most areas I would imagine.

I live in Lincoln, NE which is a city of about 200k and there are quite a few tech companies that are hiring like crazy.

I honestly can't think of a city or state where IT isn't booming right now.

Maryland - IT areas are very densely clustered around I-270. The Baltimore area is more science-based and certain parts of MD (Western MD, the Eastern Shore, etc.) still rely heavily on agriculture.

Orlando not so much...If you have years of experience perhaps, otherwise one has to look for a retail or restaurant job (which are generally part-time). There's lots of those available.

Depends on where you are at. Silicon Valley, Austin, Dallas, and Raleigh-Durham are great cities for the field. I have quite a few friends in Portland that say its great for the field.

Avoid Charlotte. Amazing city, but rough for IT.
