Hello all - I'm a local government planner in W. Washington, and have been thinking of moving back to my native state of FL (where I have about 10 yrs of state-level planning experience) to be closer to family and friends. I am lucky that my job here in WA is currently stable and I'm not likely to be laid off in the next year...that's about all anyone can say right now in most places.
However, I get the impression that the job situation is even worse than it is here, and not likely to get better anytime soon. I would want to go to either Tallahassee or Jacksonville; south FL just doesn't do it for me. Any advice from people familiar with the hiring situation around there would be greatly appreciated - thanks!!
