Hi, we are thinking of relocating from NJ to NC, but cannot get a feel if there would be any work for my husband down there. I've been looking on-line, but thought I'd post just to get some feedback. He's an Art Director in marketing/promotions and is currently working in NYC. Are there any fashion/marketing/promotions type jobs in the Raleigh/Cary/Apex area or is it really just tech type jobs? Your input would be so appreciated. Thank you.

This is the field that I am in and I have been looking for a few months even though we have not closed on our home yet. This field is no where's as big as it is in the NYC area.(I am currently employed in NYC too) If you look on the job boards on average NYC has 20-30 new jobs posted everyday where as Charlotte your lucky to get 1 a day. Jobs are far and few and the couple call backs I have received wanted me to work for peanuts. I'm talking $12-$14 an hour. Now I am realistic and know that I will not be making NY money in NC but I just can't see surviving on $12 an hour. I am trying to stay positive and even looking at other avenues. I am even considering opening my own media company. I guess only time will tell. Good luck!

Default Art Director

That's what I sort of figured. We're really struggling in NJ, but I'm not sure if NC is where we should go......
