It can be incredibly tough to find a job. Searching for 6 months is not uncommon. Techindustry is much easier though. Sometimes Portland still looks like it is extremely overeducated. People with three master's degrees and nothing to do with them. Especially for entry level positions it's very tough. That all said, don't listen to the "stay where you are" shouters out there, if you have a real good reason to come here.
