For those interested in the Raleigh NC job market--I recommend that you
check out the Research Triangle Park (RTP) online--SAS, IBM, Glaxo, Nortel,
many others have major offices there. Look up Raleigh, Durham and Chapel
Hill newapapers online and cruise the classified ads(the Raleigh News &
Observer is a good one). Red Hat Software is nearby and they're
hiring--again, check out the website. I work at Itron/UTS and we're hiring
(see below). There are many employment agencies around here (like Manpower,
Ablest Staffing, others) who place people in high-tech jobs, both permanent
and contract.

Sorry I can't give you more specific names or leads, but these are good
places to start.
