This forthcoming May, I will be graduating with an Associate of Applied Science in Electromechanical Technology. And I wish to finally avail myself of the area I live in to move to a large, vibrant city that is really on the up-and-up. So let me lay down the facts of my situation and allow you to judge whether or not my plan for moving is sound:
  • I have some industrial electrical experience, a two-year degree, and a certificate from the NCCER. Nevertheless, I am willing to work whatever job I can find when I hit the pavement until I find a job in my field.
  • I will have approximately $12,000-14,000 to move and get set up.
  • I do not want an apartment to myself. I want to room with other people to reduce the cost of living.

I intend on creating this post in several forums of prospective locations to ascertain whether or not my plan is sound.

With that kind of degree, I would be looking more towards Raleigh/Cary/RTP. That's just me though.

Yeah, I have a post with the same question in that forum since it also looked like a good area to move to.
