I am getting ready to retire from my present job. I am only 50 and looking to move to the Southport area. I am wondering how the job market is. We still have 2 little girls to put through school. Any advise would be appreciated

Depending on what your skills are you may have issues. I would recommend applying for whatever job you like and see what sticks. Don't get discouraged if you go a couple months and don't hear anything. Eventually you find something.

Most jobs in Southport area are in medical, retail and tourism (restaurants & technical trades) areas, though we do have a nuclear power plant, an Archer Daniels Midland chemical plant and an Army base. Check out indeed.com, monster.com and the facebook group, Brunswick County Help Wanted. If you've done/could do jobs where you telecommute, then thats another approach.
