Possible member - with questions!
« on: November 04, 2004, 12:51:45 pm »

Hi - I just happened upon this site while searching for information on moving to NH. My fiancee (husband in January) and I have recently decided to move northward from Philadelphia, and chose New Hampshire for several reason, one of which is the motto.

Does anyone have info about technology jobs in NH? I'm somewhat enmeshed in the internet for a living, so I have a few concerns about employment. Then again, I could always realize my dream of having a small shop! ;)

I am looking for more reasona why this is a good group to join and align my moving plans with, it sounds good on top but I am wary, probably unnecessarily so.

I am also interested in getting involved in local politics, so this group seems to me a good way to go...

Just lookin for some encouragement, and realistic opinions.
THanks!

Hi Portia, and welcome!

New Hampshire has many tech jobs within the state and many more in and around Boston (an easy commute from southern NH towns).

The best places to find tech jobs are probably from web sites, like Monster.com, which lists many in NH.  There is also the very useful "Nutfield Networking" e-mail list for employment networking in southern NH, with a heavy focus on tech jobs.  They list job openings, and they also hold scheduled networking meetings.

http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/Nutfield_Networking/

The newspapers have job listings too (The Union Leader goes 6 pages on typical Sunday), but I've found that tech jobs don't generally advertise is this "old" medium.

As for politics, you won't be displeased.  NH holds elections every two years, with state and local elections staggered.  Lots of politics, year round, every year.  The FSP is a great way to get involved in politics, since most of those who have moved to NH are very much actively involved in the political side of the freedom movement here.

Hope this helps!

Hi Porta,

Thanks so much for your interest in the FSP.  Would suggest you checkout the NH info page off the main page of the website.

The Seacoast, and Merrimack Valley appear to have an abundance of high tech opportunities.

If you have any questions about the folks up here, those who are involved in the freedom movement, organization, specific areas, types of employment, please feel free to drop me a note.

Expect if I can't be of assistance, I can find someone who can be.

Hi Portia,

I'd suggest that you check out the website of the New Hampshire High Technology Council. It contains links to all kinds of interesting information on the technology economy in NH:

http://www.nhhtc.org/

If you'd like to see and learn more about New Hampshire and the Free State Project, I'd suggest that you and your husband attend the 2nd annual porcupine festival next summer. It will be an informal event with many activities; you can pick and choose between them. It would give you a good idea of what the FSP is all about.

I've lived in New Hampshire for 17 years and have enjoyed all of them. I know of no other place in the United States that offers the same quality of life that New Hampshire does.

Best of luck with your research!  :)

Hi Portia, and welcome!

I hope you are kidding about an easy commute to Boston, or any where around Boston. Yes, it is doable, but not very fun. And if you did that you would have to pay MA income tax.

Lots of high tech jobs in Nashua area, but rent and/or property is expensive.


Wow... fisher with a useful post!

Hi Portia.  I commute to Boston, it's not near as bad as I expected but then I work off hours.    Nashua property is a little expensive, and Nash is where you want to be for that commute if you have to make it, or maybe Salem / Derry area.   But once you're here it will grab you, you'll never want to leave.

Believe Dover is not a bad commute either, and if you like you can take the train! ;)
