Do you happen to know of anyone in a similar situation as this? We bet you do.  Both husband and wife are well educated with multiple degrees, both resumes scream talent. Additionally, both are willing to even take a step back in their career if it means changing zip codes.  And the results of their job search?  It has now been going on for 2.5 yrs and they are still wearing their Yankee Hats!
