How hard is it for a software engineer to get a job somewhere in the south? I want to go to Clemson University and end up working somewhere down there. Maybe North Carolina or Tennessee.

North Carolina is the place for developers and/or software engineers. We are in Florida and there is a decent number of jobs here as well. Pay is not great but the weather is.

5.0 Mustang-Have you considered the Boston area? My husband is in IT, and actually makes a pretty good living here, comprable with NorCal.

No I have not considered anything that far north. I'm a baby when it comes to cold winters.

The Raleigh/Durham, NC area would be your best bet. Good weather, beautiful area. They have good IT jobs. Your $$ will go farther than in places like Boston or NoCal!
