I have a financial/accounting background as well as analytical experience using SQL. We will be moving to San Diego close to the end of the year and we are looking at maybe living in Poway or Clairmont. How good or bad is the job market in these areas?

I don't recommend moving without a job. I hire people and right now I have engineers, PH.D's, and Masters degree holders (and LOTS of teachers!) applying for my $22K clerical entry level jobs. The market is exceptionally tough here and the Cost of Living is very high.

Get a job before you move - just read the posts about this as many people have been out of work for a long time and even now are underemployed.

I'm not familiar with the financial/accounting job area - but I def. know for tech stuff it seems like more and more companies are hiring H1B folks - everyone else is moving out of my apartment complex and they are all moving in (all from India) to work.
