So, I've limited my search to Chicago and Atlanta, at this point. I don't like California. Any place where I am considered a hard worker has problems. I'm a lazy bastard. Really. But California make me appear to have a midwestern Lutheran work ethic. This is just wrong.
I sent my resume (via Monster) to a company in Buckhead...$80K/year and a guarantee of high value training. I mean, I know how to allocate disk from an EMC array, but they are talking SAN manager training. I would love to have that (actually doing it is a bit tedious, but it would guarantee me a certain level of income). Even better would be Oracle DBA training. That's a much higher value training.
