I realize this is an old link, but just checking to see if you two are still happy in WA. I am from Seat/Tac currently starting my 2nd year at the Univ of North Florida. I am starting to look at jobs in Wa, in preparation to moving home. How are things? Any insight you could offer would be great.
Whats the matter flying...why arent you staying in FL? Can't take the heat? Just kidding...I went to Barry...Florida was a blast...but the summers just about did me in. I will tell you the job market if Florida is better AEB all the jobs on gaswork. As far as jobs in western wa go it is sporadic. Starting from Seattle and moving south...you have Northwest Hospital (I think...this is a new deal) the U, Childrens, Harborview, Swedish Ballard, Virginia Mason, the VA, Madigan in Tacoma, nothing in Olympia, a job in Shelton, I am in Centralia, and some positions in the Vancouver area at Southwest Med Ctr. There are a few jobs in smaller hospitals east of the cascades until you get to Spokane then there are bigger hospitals hiring out there. Keep in touch when you get closer to graduation.
Although it is an opt-out state, there are lots of team positions, usually, in the larger centers such as the U, Harborview, and VM. Here in Centralia, we are all solo, however, our group is very cohesive and we all help eachother out...there are always two providers on call. Something to consider when you look for a job as a new grad is if you are going to be alone, how alone will you be? Good luck, if you want send us your CV when you are close to being done.
