If you’re great with technology and you have a creative mind, yet you are out of a job, try not to fret. There is a place where job scarcity for top technology talents does not exist at all. Ever heard of Silicon Valley? Silicon Valley is known for its aggressive buyouts of good brains and innovative minds.
