Like the title states - I've been job browsing for something more with what I majored in. A little background, 25, majored in information security/assurance, currently in Atlanta, GA ( which sucks for traffic horrendously, and its only going to get worse ). I currently work at an MSP, and have pretty much topped out where I can move up within here. So while yes, I'm looking around Atlanta, I figured to expand my net a bit wider.

Plus I'm itching for some place where I could do some outdoor things via vehicle, and snow. Oh god, snow.

I hear Provo/Orem is really the IT "hub" due to there being a Fiber hub there and such.

Last I heard on the news our unemployment rate was 2.5% lower than the national average. How that relates to jobs in the IT field, I'm not certain.

Utah county is a mini Silicon Valley--and growing.

EA Sports has a Salt Lake Office.

­The Utah Data Center will be built on a 240-acre site near Camp Williams, Utah. Once completed in September 2013, it will be twice as large as the US Capitol. The center will provide 100,000 square feet of computer space, out of a total one million square feet.

The highly-classified project will be responsible for intercepting, storing and analyzing intelligence data as it zips through both domestic and international networks. The data may come in all forms: private e-mails, cell phone calls, Google searches – even parking lot tickets or shop purchases. The center will actually focus on deciphering the accumulated data, essentially code-breaking.

I'm sure there are other well known techy businesses but these are the ones that I know of....and whether or not any of this peratins to what you're searching for, I'm not sure.
