Ebony,

I moved here (Charlotte/mecklenburg) from East NY and I love it here. I do miss the subway. Driving everywhere can be a little annoying. But thank goodness parking isn't like BK. I love the weather, don't miss the cold one bit. My beau is a native Charlottian, he always calls me a yankee... All in fun. Great place to live. Charlotte has grown a great deal since I moved here six years ago. I'm in my late 20's. Good luck on your move. If I can help in any other way. Let me know

Ebony,

I saw something on the news last night about Guilford County (just to the east of Forsyth Co.) offering better pay than Forsyth County and, if I remember correctly, a $2000 signing bonus. The segment said the combination of these factors caused Forsyth Co. to lose something like 15-20 teachers to Guilford Co. for the '07-'08 school year. You could still live in Winston-Salem or Kernersville if you wanted to and commute to Guilford Co.

Here's the link to GCS:

If you need housing, I know some agents in the Winston area who can help you find what you need. And it's trure- more house for less money here in NC! I have transplanted many yankees down here (and in some cases their entire extended families!) so I know how to help you with the "culture shock." and it's estimated that 50 million people will be moving from the North down to the South in the next 15-20 years, so you won't be the only one without a "southern accent" for long!

why not just run into a chain store (like Home Depot or Target) and get a job really quick and then transfer to NC? I have had clients do that before. Unless you need a "real" job offer...
Good luck!

YOU BET!

A real job that will provide me with a copy of a job offer letter stating what my yearly salary will be.

I currently work in IT support.

Default From NY to NC

I'll tell you what...
My heart will always be in NY BUT NC is a great place to "settle" and relax.
Just make sure you don't move to Fayetteville. Lack of jobs and high PWC (water & electric) bills!

I hope you do great things here

There are IT jobs in Greensboro, but good luck finding a high paying one in Winston-Salem. You could live in Kernersville so you could commute to either W-S or Greensboro. I'm sure you know to check Monster, which usually has Greensboro IT listings. You can always check out Winston-Salem's piedmont triad research park for smaller businesses in need of IT support, but the pay might not be what you are used to in NYC. The housing will be a LOT cheaper though to balance things out.

I just moved here from NY in August. The people are very nice and welcoming however religion is the word down here and I have found that if you are not involved with a church then you are not involved with the people. For some that might work, others need to consider this. Also, I teach in a middle school. The pay is way low, no unions, no full time subs, which means if you want a day you have to find your own sub!! and be prepared to do clerical jobs that are usually handled by counselors and secy in NY. There is a reason why the taxes are so low. I would rent beofrte I bought and see if you like it. There are pros and cons to being here just like anywhere else
