Seriously if I was concerned about emeployment Vermont would be the last state I'd consider moving to.

As 68vette noted, court reporting is not exactly the kind of employment boom rational people would look forward to.

If you really think about what most of our "GDP" goes toward, it's destruction and waste. Better to have fewer jobs (or rather, fewer hours of paid work distributed more equitably) than to have loads of prison jobs, cancer nurses, landfill jobs, police, Superfund money, F-35 maintenance crew, etc. These are expensive band-aids on a society which has to a large extent decided to be ill.

I would second the suggestion of looking in an adjoining state--either the Albany/Saratoga area in NY or the Springfield area of MA. Both will have a lot more court activity and you'll be an hour or less to Vermont. If you lived in NE Saratoga County you'd be only a couple of hours from Burlington but less than an hour from work. It's a beautiful area that is really laid back but reasonably close to everything.

if you get paid vacations, why not spend one of them in VT, and check out the area personally and in depth?

If you want to be in northern VT and want a job, any job, you will be sorely mistaken. Many state jobs (court jobs) you will find in Montpelier, Burlington, or lower VT. Northern VT has the highest unemployment rate in the state. This would not be a good place to look.

Thank you. I was told Montpelier by my friends who live there as well. I just wanted to get some other opinions

Courts in Vermont are mostly, if not entirely, electronically recorded. In addition, a few years ago the judiciary contracted out its transcribing work to a couple of firms. I think one of them is in Arizona and I'm not sure where the other one is. Either way, you won't pick up work that way.

There is still business doing depositions and that kind of work, but I don't know if the current court reporters are busy enough to create an opportunity for new entrants. I second Sheryl's suggestion that you talk to Court Reporters Associates about what the market would be like if you were to move here.
