Regional/Career Question

I have noticed a lot of posts saying that getting a job in IP with a Ph.D. in biotech and JD is difficult these days, but most people do not make a distinction as to whether this is a regional issue or not.  My question is does anyone have an opinion as to regions that might be more or less saturated.  I would imagine that jobs in the Boston or San Fran markets might be tight but what about Triangle park or Austin?
 
Also, I will be graduating soon with a Ph.D. from a top teir institution and plan to get a JD at a top teir Law School.  Do I have less to worry about or is the job market really that tight.
 
Thanks for your replies.

Thanks for the reply, though brief.  Does no one have an opinion about regions of the country that might have a warmer job market?  I would like to hear your opinion about the area where you practice even if you don't have any opinion about other areas.  If enough people respond, a picture will start to come together.
 
Thanks!

I would personally suggest the Research Triangle Park area of NC.  It's also happends to be a great place to live.
