How hard is it to find jobs say in Cardiology in cities and states that you don't have connections to? Especially if you've come from a middle of the road program? Suppose I'm interested in working in one of the warmer areas- SC, Texas etc. Is it relatively harder to find a job there than if I were to train in those places? Would I be better off finding jobs in states with a small medical training foot print? How does one go about this?

What kinds of offers are most non-interventional cards getting these days in areas like Texas, SC, etc?

If you are an MS3, it will be at least another 7 years before you are looking for a job. Who knows what the market will look like? Stop worrying about income and lifestyle at this point in your career. Specialties go through cycles, and making a decision based on current trends is a poor choice. Nephro used to be pretty competitive, now they cant give the spots away. Cards will likely always do just fine, but you seem like a guy who wants to work a shift and go to the beach, not be on STEMI call.

The reality is that most people tend to settle down in the area around their fellowship.
