Thanks for replying Dean. I may not personally know about North Carolina but I have heard of quite a few people leaving this area to seek a better life there. And I won't know unless I try. I am in the process of clearing out my things here and looking for work there. And like I said " There has to be more out there".

Dean & Joyce

From what I have heard from my clients is that it is a lot easier to find a job when you have a Charlotte area address. The only problem with that is it takes a huge leap of faith. If you have friends in the area that will be willing to let you use their address while searching.

Dear Dan,
Thanks again. How nice of you - see I have already found that the people there are nice. I just may take you up on that offer for info. It's always a bit harder when you are going it alone but regardless I am determined to make the move. I am still looking into work as we "speak", and it is good to have someone who is in the know of things there. Have a wonderful afternoon. I can only hope that all will be as friendly as you.

Nowadays, more people and businesses leave New York every year then come.

It is extremely tough to find a job in another state, especially if it's a state that's far away. I think what it is is that employers feel that they can get a person to fill the position in that state (NC for instance) without having the hassles of going out of state to find an employee. You know what I mean? Especially entry level and mid career type positions. I guess they figure there might be hassles like plane cancellation day of interview, etc, etc, etc.

Your right Dan..it is a huge leap

I'm tired of NY also. I always say why are we paying so much in taxes up here when the weather 5 months out of the yr is awful-COLD?

I forget who, but on another Indeed forum someone wrote about a lady from Illinois who just quit her job one day, packed up her belongings and 2 cats, moved to Phoenix, found an apartment and a job-as if it was no problem, life went on. Maybe it's just a tall-tale.

Not much in Ellenville Joyce, just make sure you get a job first.

Yes Dean you are correct and it is also hard finding a job anywhere these days.
And while it is a huge leap, I have asked myself just how long is someone supposed to wait for better things to come along. The taxes,prices, unemployment, weather, and lousy attitudes are some of the things that are prompting me to make the move. And yes I am being realistic, it won't be easy and there are negative people and things in other parts of the world but I am also trying to be optimistic. There will be a light at the end of the tunnel. I will work hard and do the best that I can. Thanks for your comments it has been refreshing hearing an honest and intelligent point of view. Have a great evening.

What type of job are you looking for? Do you have any friends in the area that might let you stay and borrow their address to help you find a job. I think recruiters are more reluctant now a days to hire someone from out of state/town.

Thank you dan how nice of you to respond to me. I am looking a job in business, economics, accounting or education sector. The problem is I dont have any friends in NC. As you said I think the recruiters r hesitant to hire someone from another state but still it does not make sense to me. Otherwise they should indicate in their job posting the position is open to only local applicants. Any way i dont know what will be the best thing to do

Naomi,

I know what the experts say about networking. But I truly believe that MOST people do not have a very strong business network. (including myself) Most people find jobs by themselves or thru recruiters.

And, as I have written earlier, most employers really are not going to hire applicants from out of state if it's an entry-level or mid-career position. Now if it's a CEO type position than they will open their search up to other states because of the lack of these type of applicants in the surrounding cities by the company doing the hiring.

Whatever you do Naomi, do not move first before having a job, big big big mistake!

I guess if a company hires a person from out of state and it doesn't work out, they probably will have a tough time firing the person. Now that the person has rented or bought a place and might have no family in the area for support. It could become a really messy and distress situation for both employer and employee.

That is the best advise. I have been busy sending out resumes all over the south. I am more then ready to leave the state of NY behind me. And yes while it will be a huge undertaking - life should be an adventure. I've also been going through my things to get rid of any unnecessary baggage. And looking into apartments elsewhere also. Naomi - keep at it and keep your hopes up. Something good will come along. And good- luck!

Truthfully employers have the upper hand when it comes to hiring in the Charlotte area. There has been such an onslaught of new transplants to the area that everyone is fighting for the same jobs (course some careers will be better than others - if you are an IT person, forget about it as you are a dime a dozen here). You may send out hundreds of resumes and not receive a response from any of them (this happens even if you live here locally - even more so if you are out of state).

Anyone that is just now thinking about moving from NY to Charlotte, NC I'll tell you that there are many that have gone before you (Union County seems to be an area where most NY'ers have moved to).

To the person who mentioned Asheville, NC - good luck - due to the fact that Asheville residents will quickly tell you that unless you are into waiting tables, or working at a hotel there really is not much industry there.

Wish any of you the best of luck though if you decide to move here without a job, and not much cash saved up but I would greatly advise against it.

I believe that the Triangle has a greater variety of jobs than does Charlotte. Charlotte is so focused on banking and finances. You may also find that the Raleigh-Durham area has a firmer sense of community. If you compare downtown Raleigh to downtown Charlotte, you will find Raleigh to be less congested and less hurried in general. Hope this helps in some way.

Jay in Charlotte, North Carolina said: Moved to Charlotte from Maryland a year ago and I hate it. The jobs here are scarce. I am longing for Maryland right now. My family and I relocated here from MD because we wanted to buy a home, in which we did. Sure it's cheaper to live here, but with the job market the way it is now, it's better to move to the Maryland or Northern VA area. Maryland is the richest state in the United States mainly because of the government jobs there. If you are to move to NC, then you may want to try Raleigh. I advise you to stay away from Charlotte. The money is farther north.

Hi Jay

Thanks for your perspective. I'm sorry it sounds like you are regretting your move. What field are you in? Did you come to CLT with a job lined up or did you look once you got there? Do you have any regrets about the home you bought or the neighborhood? Is it close to where you/wife work?
Thanks and I hope things improve for you soon. Andy

Don,
Thanks for putting in some positive input. Lately I have seen a few negative comments here - I'm sure that there are areas in North Carolina that the job market is scarse - but isn't that happening all over the United States? It is a risk going anywhere to find work, sometimes you may not find a great paying job but some of the other benefits may make a difference.
As for me the cost of living here in New York is outrageous, the utilities keep going up and up with no end in sight as well as gas and fuel costs. So many homes are going up for sale in and around the small town I grew up in. And just as many once lush green areas are being destroyed to build gigantic homes for people that come from the city - wanting to escape the noise and pollution. Only to find that many of them can't afford the monsters they built - so now we have less trees and more empty homes.
As in many other small towns - our factories have shut down, leaving many families out of work. There is no easy answers - no perfect place for any of us to go. But like I have said here before - there has to be something better.
Many of my co-workers have headed south - sorry if that bothers some of the originals down there. But what would they do? Doesn't everyone have the right to live and work somewhere else? And why not places ( I've heard), that are beautiful,friendly,and that are more cost friendly.
I have heard from another staffing agency there in Asheville and the woman that I spoke to was fantastic - I already feel welcome and I'm not even there yet.

I'm in the medical field(medical office administration), and I was looking for employment way before relocating here. So far I have had no luck, I'm employed now, but I'm not happy where I am. My husband transferred from his job in Maryland to Charlotte and he's paid very well. Thankfully, his pay didn't change.

The home that we purchased is lovely and so is the neighborhood. We don't have any complaints. If you have children, I advise you to research the schools first if you intend on putting your children in public schools. We researched the schools and then decided where we wanted to live within that district. So far so good. There is a website called Greatschools.net. It contains plenty of feedback about public, private and charter schools within Charlotte and other cities and states.

Hello everyone! As a real estate agent in eastern NC (Rocky Mount, Wilson, Roanoke Rapids area)let me offer a little advice if you're thinking of moving to the Raleigh area. Housing is alot more expensive in Raleigh, but if you're willing to commute 30-45 minutes to your job, I can find you a beautiful country home in the Rocky Mount/Spring Hope/Bailey/Wilson area for alot less than it would cost to live in Raleigh. And with the new highway, you can get to Raleigh alot quicker. To view our listings, visit our website: www.stoneauctionandrealty.com. Email me if you looking for something in particular. Housing is so much more affordable here - you get alot more home for the money!
Thanks! Good luck to everyone - you are very welcome here in NC!!

what if you had a kid and it died and you wanted to get a getaway. dont you think you will remeber about you child who is not wiith you.....a pet does not take the love for kids..! - GUILT TRIP ALERT!!!! - insignificant

I have heard from another staffing agency there in Asheville and the woman that I spoke to was fantastic - I already feel welcome and I'm not even there yet. - MARKETING

FOLKS: I don't think I heard one thing that was productive or inclined to give a productive result. The best way to make a move is to be single, no kids, no pets. Go to a website like www.roommates.com. Move in with someone who has an apartment (tell them in advance you are trying it out for six months). All you will need is an air mattress, sheets, etc. You have a place to live, electricity. You have an address for resumes. You have your cellphone. Then start job shopping. IT'S THAT SIMPLE. I am 50. I am a free spirited person. I keep things easy. Think of it as an adventure.

I moved from the Ohio to Charlotte because of my husband's job although I am originally from NJ. I found Charlotte to be a comfortable place to live although it is slightly more expensive to live in Charlotte than in some of the surrounding areas. I work at one of the banks and the people I work with live in the northern part of Mecklenburg county or Cabarrus, Union or Gaston counties. I hear the Triangle is growing (Raleigh area). Charlotte and Raleigh are the two big cities that attract people.

many of you people need to realize that Charlotte had a large influx of people that moved here when times were good. What it created was a job market that became very competitive (I don't care how overqualified you are, so is the guy or gal right next to you too). Now that the economy is in the pits and many people are out of work (yes, even in Charlotte) jobs are even more scarce.

Now if you are a nurse, or engineer you might have some luck but I would advise anyone else to obtain a job prior to moving here (and make sure it is a stable one). Or feel free to listen to the realtors on this site who are just waiting for you to move here so they can possibly sell you a home (there are plenty of those here that are now vacant).

I don't really know how to answer your question about what is a decent rate per hour. It would depend on your occupation, your expectations, what the market allows, etc.
Another thing to consider is what do YOU consider to be needs vs. wants. Today, so many people want cell phones, cable, home internet access in addition to what they really need: basic shelter, transportation, food, healthcare. That's where your lifestyle philosophy comes into play. Charlotte is experiencing some decline in employment along with the rest of the country. Decide how much you need to accept employment. If you can get it, then go for it.

I moved to Charlotte about a year ago from New York. I don't find the cost of living to be any more expensive than New York except for housing. I would suggest renting insteading of purchasing until you are sure you can adjust socially. There is a huge difference in the people and the lifestyle.
