Please give me an example of your "real world" experience and connections to the Austin software industry.

Or do we just have to accept it on face value? It seems that most here involved in IT don't agree with your UT or Ivy school requirement to get hired.

1. "It seems ..." = how?

2. "most here involved in IT" ? who are they?

3. I never said "UT or Ivy League School a requirement to get hired." (sounds like another reading comprehension problem here. where did you get your degree?)

I have a question for hiring managers:

Is it useless for an recent college grad who is out of state to apply for a job? Do you even look at my resume if I am from the other side of the country? I came to the conclusion that I need to live in the area before I can apply and get a job, is this correct?
(I don't have any outstanding professional experience, just low level work exp).

I moved to Austin on 9/1 due to my husband's job relocation. I have an Austin address and phone number (and have been applying for jobs with that info since AUG). I am just now getting called in for a few interviews. If you do not have an Austin address and phone number, then yes, I do believe your resume will go into file 13. I have specialized experience in the legal field and I have good experience, but I have had but 2 real leads. I'm having a second interview on Weds for a very good job and if I get it, I will consider myself extremely lucky.

Agency plans to fill part-time, temporary jobs this spring.

As the federal government readies for its decennial effort to count every person in the country, it is poised to hire 1.4 million workers for the massive undertaking. In the five-county Central Texas region, about 4,000 people will be hired for temporary, part-time jobs paying from $8 to $24 an hour, the U.S. Census Bureau announced Tuesday.
Quote:
The Census Bureau only recently began seeking seasonal workers, and many of the jobs will be filled in the spring. The bureau plans to focus its recruiting efforts on jobs in Travis, Lee, Williamson, Bastrop and Burnet counties as it officially opens its Austin office this morning at 4129 S. Commercial Center Drive with a ribbon-cutting and appearances by Census Bureau and local officials.
