I am thinking of moving my family of 4 kids and a wife to Denver from OKC. I am an audio/visual technician/home automation programmer and my wife is currently in school for hospitality management. How is the job market for audio techs and hotel workers? Is it safe to uproot and just move with a little cash and no job secured yet? It may be a one time chance to make the move. We have longed to move to Denver for years. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think it would depend on what you mean by "a little cash". I would be cautious about moving a family of six without any jobs lined up. If your wife's in hospitality management she should have a better than avg shot at getting at least something lined up before the move. Talk to some of the national hospitality recruiting firms. Also she could get a job with a company that has locations in Denver and ask to transfer. It could take a while but it's an option.

Working in IT, I would think the job market for audio techs is pretty iffy in Denver. Audio techs are kind of a dime a dozen, so unless you have a very particular strength or specialization, you'll be competing against a lot of other unemployed audio techs.

I'm an audio engineer and just arrived literally the first of the year. I've had to bring work with me and even that's a bit sparse right now. I'm still in the process of meeting people and networking, so no telling how long that might take to land steady employment or even nab up some contract gigs, but the corporate time leads seem a little dry when it comes to A/V work so far.

That said, you sound a little more specialized for A/V installs and programming than I am, so we may not be looking in exactly the same areas. Best of luck!
