Default Cairo, Egypt to Seattle, WA....looking for job opportunities & PsyD Programs

Hello,
I am an American student studying in Cairo, Egypt. I am originally from Syracuse, NY and I hate the sun so I think the weather would be no problem for me and my friend as well because she is originally from London, England. We are thinking about moving to Seattle, WA after I graduate from university in June 2009.

I was wondering what the job opportunities are like there. I have searched online and found that a lot of the jobs are techy-like stuff. I will have a BA in psychology and a BA in political science. I have no plan to continue studies right after university. I would also be interested in translation jobs as I speak English, Egyptian colloquial Arabic, and Spanish.

I am also looking for prestigous PsyD programs in Seattle area because my friend from Egypt is moving with me and she wishes to get a PsyD in Seattle.

Also, I am wondering about the Latino and Arabic populations in the area is any of you know about them. My friend and I mainly speak Arabic (Egyptian colloquial) at home and would be looking for others who do as well.
Sorry it's so long........Any help in any of these areas would be a godsend.

Thank you!

Default Lynwood

Lynnwood has a large Arab population. There is also a Coptic Church and community in Lynwood. There are also Muslim population in Bellevue. I can get you in touch with both communities. There are numerous programs in the Seattle areas for a DPsy studies, Antioch University, Seattle Pacific, and the UW are some. She may have to contact the Psychological association (Seattle chapter) for more specific and areas of specialization.
