I haven't noticed any recent posts about the Charlotte economic outlook. Are things looking up now in September 2010. I am seriously considering an immediate relocation to Charlotte. Can someone share with me the current outlook with respect to jobs?

I think the economy in Charlotte is worse than advertised. I know a number of people out of work, people losing their homes, etc. Property values have taken a huge hit especially in the higher price ranges. I hope things pick up soon.

Hate to break it to you...but the keywords are no jobs....There are no jobs.

I would not say that there are "no jobs"...not everyone here is unemployed.

But I will echo to the OP a mantra that appears on many other threads here - don't move here without a job - line one up first.

Surely it isn't as bad as Detroit is it?

Nope, not as bad as the D, but wouldn't you want to aim a little higher than that?

Also, where does Detroit enter into this discussion? Is that where the OP is from?

I think that saying there are NO jobs is an overstatement. {and this is coming from someone who is unemployed!} Charlotte is better off than a lot of places, but the dynamics have changed.
I wouldn't move anywhere without a job lined up.

Personally, I wouldn't move anywhere without a job right now... no matter if it's Charlotte or anywhere else unless of course you have the means to be picky about the job you want. The national economy is not what it was 5-10 years ago. There are jobs in Charlotte as I've had several friends land jobs here recently, but just as someone else has mentioned, the dynamics have changed.
