Default Looking for part IFR 135 companies

As of now I've been looking to move on from being a CFI to a 135 company flying light twins like Seneca's or 402's... Does anyone have a list of some companies I can look at? I found a few here in Seattle area. I like to find some other ones that's out there.

ram air freight in NC is one you can check out...Below you'll find the mins for their company...

Pilots must meet the FAR Part 135.243 flight time requirements for single-pilot IFR, which are:

1,200 Total Time
500 Cross Country (point to point, not necessarily over 50nm)
100 Night
75 IMC or simulated IMC, with 50 in actual flight (i.e., can only count 25 hours of simulator time)
And have the legal right to work and live in the United States.

However, ideal candidates must also have:

The current ability to fly on instruments down to minimums in poor weather
Those applicants not meeting the above need not apply. If you are still interested in working for Ram Air Freight, you must read our FAQ page regarding hiring practices, training, and life at our company. Certain situations may require applicants to pass a pre-employment flight check.

Currently, we are accepting resumes only via email . Phone calls, mailed or faxed resumes will not be accepted under any circumstance.

Thank you for your consideration.

Default Alaska

Why not go to Alaska? I was a CFI in the Northwest and it was a career buster. We have few opportunities here in WA. I always tell new pilots to head to the east coast. The last guy who went there got on with Pinnacle after only 9 months of instructing. Since opportunities are so plentiful he was able to get some twin time instructing and picked up 100 hours SIC in a citation. I would strongly advise going east. And, whatever you do Don't' ever work for Horizon.
