Default Considering moving to the Va Beach area trying to find reputable places for employmen

I am a CNC Machinist/Metal Fabricator with 14 years experience running CNC Mills, Lathes, Press Brakes, Lasers, Turrets and Water Jets. Also experienced in MIG and TIG welding looking for reputable places to apply that I wouldn't have to worry about lay-offs that pay competitively and offer good benefits. I also have experience drawing on CAD and other like programs I just figure I would try to get some info from locals on good places of employment in the field since its the only type of work experience I have since I was 18 and don't know much about businesses in the area and will be moving myself and my family to the area so work consistency is a must. Also good school districts and areas to live in that have good public schools are other big things to me as we have one child in school and plan to have more children. Any replies to these subjects will be greatly appreciated hoping I get the answers I am looking for here.

Apply to shipyards, just probably not H.I. Newport News because they're laying off a shitload of people. All I can tell you about schools is I don't think most of them are very good around here.

USAjobs.gov

Might get lucky with so many bases in that area; ideally find a .gov job of your trade.

So there are good public schools there I got a PM stating public schools in the area were not so great I appreciate that info as I rather save money to send my kids to college rather than pay for their K-12 education at a private school...

Like most areas, some schools probably suck and others are probably decent. It is just a matter of finding one of the good ones. I don't have kids and I don't know anything other than a few bad things I've heard, but perhaps someone else here can elaborate.
