Maybe so. However, that means that you'd be entirely dependent upon where you could find a job ... and how would you know where to look unless you'd already found an area you liked. It's not as if you could look everywhere, and it would be illogical to seek jobs where you didn't want to live.

If this was me, one of the main questions would be: where would I be happy?

Then, if I needed a job, I'd see if they had my type(s) of job, and then see if I could get hired.

In any case, I didn't get the idea that the OP is ready to pack up and move right away (nor that she isn't going to do that) ... so it's hard to guess beyond the information already provided.

Maybe industrial is not the right word. In North Raleigh I was looking at a home and then drove around and there was land that used to be a landfill and then an industrial plant was near. It seems in some areas a mechanical type structure is very close to residential. I'm not used to a business of that sort so close to homes.
Some is not being used to a certain style. I knew that NC overall would not be modern. It is a different style of living which does not make it bad but can take adjusting or may not be for everyone.
I will not need to find a job in NC so that is not an issue.
Thank you for those links. I am going to go look at the Ballantyne area today. I saw some homes in Huntersville which seemed nice.
