I just landed an IT job from out of state. It is true, it depends on what area you are in in IT. The area of IT I work in is pretty hot right now. There are not enough workers for this discipline anywhere in the country. But it also heavily depends on your skill set.

But in my experience I did see a lot of IT jobs, from Senior level (mostly what I saw) down to junior level. It is harder to find work from out of state, but not impossible with the right skills.

I hope you are correct but that is exactly the kind of industry the Phx metro needs more of.

Can't understand why it's not more prevalent there. Other weird, funky places have become major tech centers (Seattle?! Austin??!), but I guess they're "older" than Phoenix in terms of large population counts. With trying to make a career out of programming, and wanting to live in Phoenix, I hope that at some point during that career more companies realize that Phoenix is a good place to be.
