How many of you relocated to Dallas from another city within the past year or so? If so, how long did it take you to find a job since you have been there?

I relocated myself 6 months ago and still trying to bring my family down. I had a job when I moved down, they closed the company and it took me 2.5 months to find another.

I have a client who moved here last year from New Jersey with his family. He was in the IT field but he was lacking some of the major certifications such as Cisco etc. It took him 3.5 months to find a job that he really likes and paid what he wanted. He had a couple of offers before taking the one he accepted.

2 to 3 months isn't bad at all.
