Probably not as difficult with the holidays coming up, but finding something that is more than temp might be harder. I just passed through Monroe on 74 and saw "Now Hiring" signs at the Harris Teeter distribution center and at a Cook Out along 74 - but no idea if those are seasonal or permanent.

If this is an optional move, I'd wait for 6 months to a year. The economy hit a lot of higher-end jobs & now those people are working these jobs. As higher-end jobs open up, those people will go back to doing what they used to do & there will be less competition for these jobs.

Depends ou your experience and what you have to offer. No or little eduucation gets you crappy job. Education and experience that an employer wants puts you in demand. Its the same anywhere Charlotte, NYC, Orlando or DC. You don't have what it takes don't expect to much. But if you got what an emploer wants you can gon very far....even in Charlotte.
