Hey everyone! I am new to the forum, so bear with me. I have read LOTS about Asheville's poor job market and need additional perspective. For example, in the Cullowhee area, how would one rate employment by the University of Western North Carolina? I am considering a position there but don't want to take a leap of faith and move if the job doesn't work out and there's nothing else around to fall back on.
Also, is there anything to do around Waynesville (restaurants, boutiques, etc.)? I am a type "A" (definitely not a hippie chick) but appreciate the hippie chick lifestyle. At the same time, I need retail therapy from time to time (Barnes & Noble is my favorite store). Am I crazy to be considering the Asheville area?
Thanks for any replies/suggestions.
