My family and I are strongly considering moving from Syracuse, NY, where we have always lived, to Greensboro, NC. I have never moved out of state before and I am nervous and excited. Any advice about the job market, neighborhoods, schools, etc will be greatly appreciated, thank you!

How can you be "seriuosly considering" moveing when you seem to know so little abour the area and don't have a job taking you there? Doesn't it make sense to visit and area and see how you like it first, before putting it on a list to move to. Maybe if you tell us why Greesnboro, over every other place that's not NY, and what you hope to find there, and people can address specifics of each point. But simply saying "I want to move to Greensboro--now tell me everything about it since I know nothing" is an odd thing to ask.

In general, you need to know that NC is a high-unemployment state, so be sure to have a job lined up before moving anywhere. You haven't said what industry you'd be looking for jobs in, so we can't comment on that facet of your request.

Here is City-Data's general page on Greensboro, like they have for every city.
