    I have been in Dallas, Texas are all of my life. I am very interested in living someplace new. I am wanting to know if there is a recruiter or website I can go to specifically for people that are eager to relocate? I am also interested in International.

    Post your resume on Dice.com. You can put your relocation preferences there and also create job search agents that email you daily when jobs that match your description open up in a particular place. Just be aware that the IT industry is posting quick and hiring quick, so even though you fit the bill, they might pass you over unless you have a local address.

    You might want to skip the recruiter route. Most recruiters for IT positions don't know how to present the requirements of their clients and thus affectively rule out candidates otherwise fitting. You'll also get a lot of false positives going through recruiters. I've had more success applying and interviewing directly with the company... although, since a many businesses outsource IT, this isn't always possible. Look for multinational companies that have subsidiaries, SIEMENS for instance. Once you get in you can either transfer to another location (and they might be more willing to cover relocation costs) or you can parlay your position there to a competing company.
