SC has an unemployment rate of 6.7% compared to Virginia's 4.8%. Hampton Roads, the metro you'd be looking for if you moved to Virginia, has an unemployment rate of 4.9%. Given that Hampton Roads dwarfs anything in South Carolina by hundreds of thousands of people, Virginia probably has the most job opportunities.

How about the housing budget in Hampton Roads? I know $800/month for 2 bdr in much of VA wouldn't be doable, but I would just be guessing about HR.
