dice.com sends me daily updates about tech jobs in the Des Moines area.
There are usually a couple new postings every day, but mainly what I see
are Windows or Solaris admin openings (I forget exactly what my fiters
are set up for). It's hard to say exactly who's hiring because many of
the postings on dice.com are from recruiters. I don't have anything
against recruiters, but I generally like to know who I'm applying to...
I'd suggest checking out the big job-finding web sites, plus get a list
of businesses that you might be interested in working for and check out
their web pages. Many businesses post job openings on their web site.
And if anyone out there needs an experience Linux and network admin
(Cisco & Nortel) let me know :)...
