Hi Melissa Can you tell us how you plan to support yourself? I know minimum wage was just increased to $6.15 and hour here in NC, but that's not nearly enough to live on, especially in the bigger cities with more to do. You could possibly live in a really small community affordably, but then you'd be away from all the action people your age like. Will you by any chance be a student somewhere?

It is good that at your age you have already aquired so much experience Those kinds of jobs are available in Charlotte, Raleigh too I would imagine. Also good you will have a roommate because it would be hard for you to live in either of these cities on the average income of hospital or day care workers. To be in a safe area in Charlotte plan on spending at least $700 on rent okay? $900. would be even better though. Charlotte is better for IT jobs than any other place in the state, but your friend must have their certifications in order to really go anywhere. Good luck!

Melissa,
Take a look at Rockingham County...probably just what you're looking for..
Good Luck....I'm selling my place...but probably not what you're looking for at this age
Rockingham County is a 30 minute drive to Greensboro where Moses Cone Hospital is rapidly expanding
45 minutes from Winston where there is the huge Baptist hospital and Forsyth hospital. You can drive home from those busy cities and relax in the peacefulness of yesteryear.
I don't know what IT means ...so I can't suggest on that and I don't feel stupid cause my husband who is a college graduate doesn't know either. Cheers!
What is IT?

Best wishes to you in your move to NC. Definitely do some deep research on the jobs wherever you plan to move. Daycare and hospital jobs here in NC are not known for their High Pay, especially if you do not have any "formal" education sucha as a AS or BS degree. IT jobs are huge in Raleigh at many places in the Research Triangle park. Same thing goes for that though, if you don't have the certifications a lot of people wouln't give you a chance as there are plenty of other job applicants that do. Good Luck!

I hate to burst your bubble, but looking at this post, you might benefit from additional training or perhaps go on for additional education in the career that interests you.

Check out the Winston Salem area. King, Kernersville, Lewisville, etc. Lots of opportunities in Health Care and IT plus a great area for rural living.
