Anyone know of any resources on job growth by city in NC (that's recent) that can be filtered by sector (e.g. software jobs in each area in NC, etc.)?

I've been asking in various forums about jobs in software development and project management (agile preferred), and was looking at areas in the Triad. Everyone directs me to the Triangle (which makes sense) but I'm hoping to live in a more conservative family-oriented area with low traffic and lower cost of living (but still need to have a job in my field).

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

What your asking for takes three years to compile.

...software development and project management (agile preferred)...
If you're competent and experienced in some specific skill or other then the professional contacts and other network sources
that you've developed while preparing for and doing that work should be able to provide more than enough of
the general information needed to formulate or phrase the specific question(s) you need to have answered...
and tell you who you need to seek out to ask them of.

"I don't think Pittsboro is conservative.".....and the OP wants a "conservative family-oriented area". If there is such a thing as a family oriented, liberal area, how would the two differ in the "family oriented" arena ?

I'm not judging, but if I had young family, I'd be more concerned with the family aspect for my family, not the particular political persuasion to suit my preference....

Maybe "liberal" is just a euphemism for something unsaid?
If I were raising kids today, I'd want to find a place where my kids would be safe, have activities nearby, go to good schools, and have lots of opportunities for making friends. None of those things are inherently liberal or conservative.

Maybe they mean more "churchy" or such.

I believe northern Durham county is a whole world away from most of (Southern, urban) Durham county in politics. And then there is Granville county. And the Southern tip of Wake (Holly Springs etc) which seems to be where all the "Red" transplants in Wake county end up.

Chatham is becoming an extension of Chapel Hill in most ways, including politics.
