Is it hard to find a financial analyst job in Silicon Valley area, within the high tech company's finance dept?

I’m moving to Bay area next month and would like to know about the job market first.
At least, where I should start for job hunting?

Thanks!

I wouldn't think it is harder to find a job here than anywhere else. Craigslist.com posts many jobs in this area. Craig is from the Bay Area so its pretty much the "thing" here.

Also check the City of San Jose website. They are always hiring for analyst.

It's easier if you move to the city (San Francisco), if you're in corporate finance then there are lots of high-tech companies in South Bay you can look, if they are hiring. Most tech companies prefer to hire from within unless you're very experienced, it's also very competitive as 56% of pop. in Sunnyvale/Cupertino area has Master's Degree. Being well-educated and highly skilled here is a norm, not an advantage. Experience is what sets the difference.
