I have talked my wife into relocating our family to Oklahoma, if I can find suitable employment.

Does anyone have any contacts or job prospects that they are aware of?

I am open to any areas of Oklahoma, heck I even lived in Commanche/Waurika years ago.

I am a LAN/WAN Administrator, but I can do a heck of a lot of other things as well.

I can leave almost immediately if a job is available

thanks in advance!

Start talking to the Oklahoma State Employment Service. A lot of companies now do all of their hiring through them and do not accept applications (does that make sense?).

I know that my company has hired a few people in jobs related to yours over the past year or so. If I see or hear something, I can pass along the information.

I think Tulsa (I live near OKC) would be the preferable place to live, but I guess you'll go where the work is.

I would prefer to stay in my new house for now, but there is little work to be had around here. I will see about getting registered with the OK state Employment service.

thanks!

If you can find something in Tulsa, I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's a fairly cosmopolitan town with a wide range of entertainment and more public places to shoot than OKC. The so-called "world's largest" gun show is held there and it's fairly close (rather, closer) to public land and lakes if you and your family like the outdoors and camping. Really a little something for everyone.

Oklahoma City isn't bad, but we're not much more than an overgrown cowtown, oil field service center, and a series of truck stops. Gun shows here are LAME, there's only one public outdoor shooting range, and concert events are fairly limited.

The upsides to anywhere in the state are a low cost of living and affordable housing. The state post-secondary schools are all fairly good and offer reasonably priced tuition.

It's just not a bad place. Even my wife who's from the Gay State, I mean GOLDEN State (HA!) likes it.

Oklahoma State Employment Security Commission

There are a few jobs listed that may be of some interest.

Email me your resume and I'll pass it around. There are a couple of related businesses in my building, and I know some of the guys. I don't know shit about what they do, but it is related to networks, electric abucuses, etc.

Jim_Dandy is right that Tulsa would be a good place, but I'm partial to OKC. I'll never live elsewhere again.

Thanks for the leads guys, we are heading back to Reno. We have family there, so we will have a place to live, until I can line up some work.

Thanks again,

dave

Gateway has a position open in OKC and Tulsa for a Tech Customer RepPT, no travel required, high school education and 3-5 years related experience required.

NDC Health has a position for a QA Manager for its Hospital Application Services Division, but it's based in Tulsa, so you might not want it.
