If you are in the process of looking for a new job or career in IT then you may have to look a bit further a field than your home town. This is especially true if you are looking for a very specific job with the IT industry.
It may be that you have to consider relocating for a job in order to get the role you want to.
When looking to relocate you need to ensure that the job is right for you and possibly even look for alternative companies near by that you may be able to approach if the first job doesn’t work out. Many people relocate to a city where there are more job prospects. If you have previously lived in the country this can be a huge change especially if you have a family and they will also be relocating schools / nursery etc.
It may be worth travelling to the job for a while (if possible) before relocating to ensure that you are going to be happy.
