How hard will it be to get a job as a entry level Diesel Mechanic?

I am probably willing to relocate anywhere when I get my degree. I am currently applying to a school in Arizona that is for Diesel mechanics ,it is supposed to be the equivelent of a 2 year degree.

I went to what was then called "Ohio Diesel Tech" in Cleveland. Once I got out and went back home (NY) I was able to land a job at a local bus garage for a few years and then... More
