Can anyone help me find a job in the Seattle/Tacoma/Bellevue area? Resume and story attached. Anyone?

Ok... I have moved around a little over the past few years. I lived in Florida for about 6 1/2 years. I did move to Montana for a year to take care of my mother after a near-fatal accident. I moved back to FL, then my spouse's job took us to Portland, OR in March, 2008. Unfortunately, after our cross-country move, the company had layoffs and we couldn't survive on my salary alone in Portland. We are regrouping in Lafayette, LA where we have family and a much more affordable lifestyle. Both of us dislike it here very much, and miss the Northwest like crazy. We are looking at the Seattle area instead of Portland because the economy in Seattle is more sound. Resume below. I did not list my name, address or phone number for privacy reasons. If you would like to contact me, please reply to this question. Thank you!

    Hopefully you've already posted on Craigslist ;)

    Anyways, there are job fairs in the Seattle area and I believe there will be one at Qwest Field fairly soon.

    There are job fairs held monthly in the region so perhaps you can try coming up for a weekend.

    Here's a link to a calendar of events-
