Hi All,

My wife and I are seriously considering relocating from the San Francisco Bay Area to North Carolina. Based on our research and the helpful folks on this forum, we have determined that Charlotte would probably be the best city for us.

Can anyone tell me if there are alot of accounting job opportunities in Charlotte. I have over seven years experience with Fortune 500 companies working as an accounting analyst.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Charlotte in general has a very tight job market for white collar professionals. There are just so many well qualified people from all over the country vying for jobs here. Start sending your resume out and find a headhunter, but do not move here without a job. This is a mistake many people have made that has put them in a tough financial situation. Best of luck to you - just be patient.

Thanks lovesMountains. Just wanted to get a feel for the current job market out that way. We won't be making any kind of move for at least a couple years, and I would NEVER consider moving without a job firmly in place

Wachovia, Bank of America, Nucor, Duke Energy, PNG, Lance, Harris Teeter are the only things that I can think of as far as industry that are based here. I'm sure there are tons I'm forgetting. Lowe's is in Mooresville. Do you have your CPA? That would make a big difference obviously.

Some people can financially look for a job in a State their not living in while others can not. We had sold our house in Denver, Colorado area and wanted to get out of their before the snow started falling. We just couldn't take the chance of either of us falling in snow/ice. I fell last winter and I had to have shoulder surgery done. Our family consists of just myself and my wife so we could move easily.
