I spent a whole week in San Antonio last week and let me start by saying I was highly impressed. Originally I was going to go to Phoenix, but decided at the last minute to go to SA. I stayed at the Embassy Suites on E Houston street and spent a great deal of my time in the Downtown / Riverwalk area. I also spent a great deal of time in the suburbs around Boerne, Schertz and Cibolo. What I noticed about SA is that it offered a small city but yet big city feel. Everyone was was extremely nice and welcoming. So I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing time!

After running around the city for a whole week, I have decided that I would love to relocate there soon. What companies in SA are hiring for IT personnel? What IT consulting firms should I reach out to in the area? Currently I work for a healthcare company in Atlanta as an Information Security Analyst. I also have technical support experience as well so I can be versatile if needed.

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated!

Tons of IT work here especially in cyber security.

Rackspace is the big guy in San Antonio.

Btw, San Antonio isn't a small city though, 2.4 million people, or were you talking about the suburb cities?

P.s.

Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Thank you! I had started looking into Rackspace recently. The suburbs gave me the small city feel, but SA offered the major city feel. It's nice to have a mixture of both.

Default A Nod in Assentment,

I am in complete agreement with your one week's assessment of San Antonio's "small town" feel , Cord. The suburbs here are easily accsessible from downtown. I think you might easily call it home.QUOTE=cordtwo;36509568]Thank you! I had started looking into Rackspace recently. The suburbs gave me the small city feel, but SA offered the major city feel.

Yeah it is...LOL! This is the largest "small town" I've ever seen.

I really appreciate all of the suggestions. I've already started reaching out to some people in SA, so hopefully I can land something soon. I know it can be difficult getting interviews from another state at times.

I should've put the "" at the end of that. I was referring to my own experience here in SA over the last decade I've been here. The fact that I see the same people, same cars on the way to work almost everyday, and have so many of those "it's a small world, isn't it?" experiences here in a city of 2.2 million people. It's so much like the "city" of 100K I spent most of my time growing up in. I love SA for those very reasons. I feel it's just big enough to have those experiences I sort of enjoyed and just big enough to be a "number" if you really wanted to.

I don't know where that 2.4 million people figure comes from. From what I can find on the net the population at most is 1 million below that.
