Funny as I hear everyone saying that SD has the perfect weather but same can be said for LA as well. Overall San Diego is a boring place to be and live.

From what I have seen posted, there seems to be a great deal of Jobs that needs to be filled. Which is always a good sign and I'm sure that the cost of living is lower than what I am used to so if the pay if generally the same. I should take a trip to visit first to check out the area and see
if it feels right for me.

I am single but not looking to be too close to the night life so Sugar Land seems to be a good fit by what was said.
Anytime, don't mention it. Let me know if you need some help looking around. And if you need more information about costs and things of that nature, please message me.

The Wel-Farm shopping center in Sugar Land is like a Mini- Viet Town/Chinatown, as both groups have large amount of stores, grocery stores, restaurants, and salons, and Chinese Banks in the area. Which is why I recommended Sugar Land.

Let me know when you'll be visiting, I can help you out if you want to see the city more. I can pinpoint the areas of your interest and things of that nature.

One of the hurdles I found while looking for IT jobs around here is they want oil/gas business experience. Btw, there are more IT opportunities in Dallas.
I think he should be fine, my dad normally has a traveling IT job, and for IT unlike other sectors where in the country you come from doesn't matter. Because it's a global competition sector, normally H1's and L1's from India and China come over to do the work because they can be "more qualified" than American's here. But normally if you live here in USA you'll do fine in the IT sector if you have the skills and a good resume.
