I want out of New York State, but I'm afraid that applying to teaching jobs in other states isn't getting me anywhere since I'm out of the area. I want to begin working right away, in any industry, until Sept. when I can begin substitute teaching.

There's a Reading Corps in the state of Washington, around Seattle. Should I take it and move there and work another job at night or...

Move to Denver with what I have and look for a job?

I'm frustrated and feel trapped and can't stay here b/c there's no possibility of finding a teaching job within the next 5 years.

Sounds like Washington might be your best bet. You are getting valuable experience towards your chosen field, working whatever job at night.

Seattle is more cosmpolitan and a larger city. Complete opposites in weather. 300 days of sunshine in Denver, 300 days of clouds and drizzle in Seattle. Weather would be the biggest factor for me.

How's the job market in each?

The weather in Seattle would be a deal breaker for me, unless there was absolutely no way I could find a job elsewhere. It is so rainy, cloudy, and depressing. My entire family lives there, and I miss them, but I would never move there.

For IT, the field I work in, Seattle's job market is good. There are consistently a lot of job openings there, while in Denver there are few.

As for other types of work, I know that Denver is slow and I don't know about Seattle.
