Good Evening,

I am looking to relocate to NC within the next 1-2 years. I will need to find work in software development. I understand the tech triangle is an excellent place to find such a job, but I was hoping someone could be more specific in terms of areas within the triangle that would be good for me and my family to relocate to. I have 3 children(10, 6, 6) so schools are VERY important. I am currently near Orlando, FL and have been dying to get out of this state since I can remember. I hate the heat and have never gotten used to it. I very much dislike the beach except at night. I love mountains, and snow, and mountain streams, etc....I grew up camping in the Smokies several times a year for most of my life.

So, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again,

Demian

We're taking the plunge real soon ourselves. My wife and I are fiftyish, kids gone, moving to Burlington/Mebane area.
How are the opportunities for more hardware-oriented positions? I have been in tech support & field service for a number of years.
We can't wait to leave the rat race here in Mass. and know that we will blend right in as we've paid a few visits already :-)

Default Hardware techs in NC

I'm 50 ish my self. Was the Desktop Support Manager at Cisco in Research Triangle Park in the Raleigh, Durham , Chapel Hill area (about 20 min from Burlington/Mebane , pronounced like Mebin-rhymes with carbon, always better to avoid out of towner embarrassement) Lots of hardware support jobs available, check out Monster.com in RTP, NC. I know several temp agencies and head hunters looking for hardware guys.

I am a tech writer, tech researcher and am looking to move to Asheville in a couple of years. Any hope of getting something in the tech field there?

Default Thanks, Jay!

Jay,

Thanks for the observations.

I am not certain if my current employer will keep me on once I move (the original plan was that they were going to), so that is good info.

Yes, my wife and I have been looking around twice -- the last time was last summer. I learned very early on about the proper pronumciation ;-) There are lots of towns up here in Mass. that trip up the "furriners" just as bad, if not worse (one of the best ones is Leicester - which an Englishman would have no problem with...).

My wife has been an office manager with a small hobby magazine, so I have noticed that there are lots of office jobs around there but she will have to hustle to find one that pays better.

It took us a long time in our lives before we decided to stick our necks out but I honestly figure that this is the perfect time to make this move.

Gotta go - work beckons...

Steve>>

Hi C21Jay

I am looking to relocate NC in a couple of months and was wondering if you know of any recruiters or head hunters in the Software Quality Assurance field.

2 years is a long time. What is here todau may not be here then. Or...what is here today may grow real big, making your chances better. RTP in Raleigh-Durham has the maximum oppurtunities. CHarlotte has quite a few. But the place that is growing currently is the Traid (Winston Salem- Greensboro).
Wachovia, RJR, Sara Lee, Triad Guarentee, GMAC, RMIC, BBnT all have a lot of IT positions. It is equi-distant to the coast and mountains both. Housing is still cheap.

Anyone know of SAP jobs? I'm a traveling consultant but wouldn't mind living in Charlotte but driving to a position somewhere in the SC/NC area.

Default Well, things change...

I have been here in Mebane for almost three months and really love the city and the area. We feel that we made the right choice, that's for sure!

BUT --- my fickle company has decided to terminate me.

Anyone with decent recruiter leads in either the Triad or Durham/RTP area, I would appreciate any leads. Monster and careerbuilder are basically a waiting game after you submit your application or resume. I've been doing this for two weeks now and need to move on. My line is tech support and field service but honestly I am willing to go back to being a carpenter or handyman at this stage. In other words -- if the description says "nights and/or weekends/holidays" I skip on to the next posting. Life is now too short. It's not that I don't care (I do) it's that I have reached the point where life is more important.

On the plus side: I love the summer (yes, heat and all!), the people here are GREAT, Mebane is in a revival mode and it is still a LOT cheaper to live here than in MA.
