|If anyone in the Denver metro area works for or knows of a GIS oriented / ESRI application developer position, let me know. The axe has just fallen in my office and I was part of the severed head.

|I'm in the Denver area as well and have been job hunting for a year now. Tough time to be a IT person. I'd recommend applying for unemployment benefits as it could be a long search. Make sure you apply a little before any serverance/vacation runs out or else you can miss out on some funds. You can find info and apply at http://www.coworkforce.com .
As for job hunting, the only success I've had is through the Denver Post/RM New classifieds ( http://postnewsads.com/jobs/ ). Monster and the other big job boards have been useless. However, I did get a email yesterday from my Dice.com resume posting. I have a phone interview tomorrow with BearingPoint (formerly KPMG). I'd also try industry job boards. I think employers are moving to smaller, local, board to cut down the volumes of resumes they receive.
Seems like I've seen some GIS positions out there while hunting. However, while I do find postions regularly I'm interested in, it is rare to hear back. I think they are flooded with resumes nowdays so do what you can to stand out on your cover letter/email and keep it short.
On the up side, it's great timing for riding and enjoying life a little. I'm fortunate that my financial responsibilites are pretty low, and I don't have a family to support. I've had to cut way back on my lifestyle but riding and the other things I really enjoy don't cost much anyways. It's been a really fun year but cash flow and debt financing will eventually catch up to me. Still, it's not like I haven't been looking diligently and I'm also going back for a Masters at Regis, so I'm still moving ahead. Good luck to you and feel free to contact me at JS5280 AT HOTMAIL DOT COM.
