I am looking to move to the Seattle area from Atlanta, GA. I am a bus driver. I have a family. How is the job market in Seattle for bus drivers and what steps should I take to gain employment before moving? I have looked into several companies, but it seems as though no one is hiring right now. I am trying to make this move by the end of January. Any advice would be appreciated!

You have bad timing. The schools hire drivers in the summer for the following year, so too late. The biggest local bus service is King County Metro, and due to big budget problems they are planning major cuts in service in 2015, with 74 less routes. The local private carriers are mostly for summer tourists. Sound Transit is in better shape but still not likely to do much hiring. Try Community Transit, and Kitsap Transit, I have not heard of any problems with them.
