I'm currently living in Michigan & want to relocate to the Charlotte area (my sister & brother in law live in Concord). I've been job searching for several months now, do you think it is hopeless to be able to find a decent job anywhere in "these times" or am I just not looking hard enough? It's quite depressing in Michigan & I've wanted out since I was 16 yrs old! I have a bachelor's degree & have been graduated & working for about a year...what are your thoughts?

The job market is horrible right now. Best advice, keep your job, your lucky to have one. And of course keep sending out your resume, but do not move unless you have a job, it could take you a year to find something. Just bad times all around.

Just keep applying and be patient. You may also consider using your sister's address on your resume.

+1 w/that comment...It is always beneficial to have a local address when sending out resumes...especially in these tough times

I know Marina Shores apartments, Carriage Club apartments and Bridges at Mallard Creek Apartments are looking for a sales/marketing person. Good company from what I hear.
