Default Relocating to Vancouver, WA area...Need Job!

I am currently an ACO in California and it seems that the wife and I may be moving up to the Southwest area of Washington. We are looking to settle around the Vancouver area, but also other places in Clark County and/or Olympia. Any assistance or guidance on where to look for openings is appreciated as I currently know very little about the area.

Thanks in advance!

You might want to check with the Whatcom Humane Society ... they were looking for folks a while back. Their E.D. is well-respected by intelligent people at Marin (she used to work there).

I found that listing too on the NACA website, but when you go to the county site, the listing doesn't exist (or I couldn't find it). Still trying! Thanks for the input!

We need a clearing house for ACO posts ... like a temp agency only for ACO hires I'd join.

My advice for locating an ACO job?

Go to the web site page for all the counties/ cites you are interested in working at and pull up the job opp/employment listing gov page. I see lots of jobs this way..

PS... That job in Multnomah <sp?> had 153 applicants...
