Hi, I am planning on moving to Austin. I work with a Fortune 50 Company up north with lots of experience. Any ideas on how best to approach some of the major companies. My backgruond is more industrial and strategic, rather than tech. Any help is appreciated. (I can certainly give advice for anyone moving north. Have MBA, etc, SiX Sigma, . .

My ex girlfriend worked in Marketing for various IT firms and she had no college degree and made $50-65k a year. Not too shabby. She decided to sell her house and move back to New Hampshire to be with her family. She admits she misses Austin but her new job in Marketing allows her to go to Europe!

-disclaimer-
I know just about nothing about markerting
-----------

That said, are you looking to hire on at a big company (IBM/Dell/Freescale) or are you looking for a marketing company (GSD&M, et al)? Are you in the creative side or marketing, or more the business side (MBA makes me think this ? GSD&M has had several rounds of layoffs and has lost some high profile clients, so I don't know how much hiring they are doing. They are pretty much the definition of 'placement' (or whatever you call it when you buy radio/tv/magazine space, etc) in Austin, and they contract out to smaller local companies for their creative work (generally). There are lots of small marketing companies and I have a few friends that work at those and they seem to be doing fine.
