My questions are:

I need to find a job - not sure how much I can help you there, but it seems lately there have been some announcements about new jobs coming to the area. I'm sure it is tough to find a job anywhere now, but there are still jobs out there!

Great place/college student range to live - Anywhere near UNCC you'll find most of the college students. I live Uptown and there are a good many mid 20s aged people in my building. If you can find a good job that would allow you to afford it, living Uptown is great and convenient.

Colleges - UNCC (University of North Carolina Charlotte), Queens University, Johnson and Wales, Johnson C. Smith University, CPCC (Central Piedmont Community College), and some others. I guess it really all depends on what you're degree is in.

Nightlife - For a college aged person, Uptown generally has plenty going on. The EpiCentre is always fun and has a good selection of different bars/nightlife/restaurants. There are also good bars near UNCC, go figure! Also near UNCC is the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater which is the outdoor concert pavilion.

I basically need as much feedback as possible to get this process moving. I plan on moving Sept of Oct of this year. I have mostly customer service experince with the jobs being as though I am still In college. If you could please help and not be negative. thanks

Does the city of Charlotte recruit in OH?

I swear I have met probably 20 people in my complex that moved down from OH within the last 12-18 months.

Do you already know people that live here? I would start out by sending everyone you know here your resume and start the networking process early. You HAVE to get a job first. Or come stay a couple weekends and at least secure a part-time job for when you move here full-time.
As far as cool places for young people to live ... uptown is where all the action is. But it's not cheap. You'd be best off to find a roommate.
I tell all Ohio people this (because I'm from Ohio too) ... contact the your college alumni association and find out if they have a chapter here. OSU, UD, Ohio U, Miami, I'm sure UC has one too ... I know they are all very active w/ alumni networking in Charlotte.

PINK: that is excellent advise. I don't know that anyone could give better advice to someone who is thinking about moving here right out of college.

My wife and I moved from Cincy 3 years ago and can say it is the best thing we did.

that's because Ohio has 8 months of winter, 3 months of summer, 2 weeks of spring and 2 weeks of fall! In other words, it's terrible.
