The places I know of that use Medical Assistants require certification (RMA or AAMA). If you are certified, you'll want to apply for jobs online with the hospital systems. I assume that is the type of employment you are wanting. You'll want to be easily reached and able to come on short notice for interviews. Some find that it is harder to get hired while living out of the area. Others have not had a tough time with that. Good luck with it all.

Moved down with family and three kids from NYC about 4 years ago. Lived in Queens and Long Island. Overall I think it was a great move and honestly would not move back. Hear a lot of griping from former nyers but I cant complain. I would recommend the Chapel Hill school system. Amongst the best schools in the state and East Chapel High has had some national recognition for achievement (highest SAT scores). Good college vibe for kids; perhaps the right environment. Many of the students parents are docs and professors since UNC and Duke are the major employers so they seem to drive their kids to achieve. UNC and Duke hospitals might be potential employers. Wake school district is too political and quite frankly don't put the kids first. I think if you research Wake you will see what I mean.

Would the OP's skills pay enough to cover Chapel Hill rents?

Hey, how you been doing? I put this in another thread and will add it here too. I see you are fixin to come down this way and I want to say welcome. I don't know why everyone pushes Chapel Hill, I guess that's where the yuppies are? lol I don't know. If you want laid back you might want to look out my way. Garner, Clayton, Willow Springs. I lived here all my life and its a good place to live, but a lot more crowded than it was in the 60's and 70's. Good schools for your youguns too. I graduated from Garner Senior High in 1977 college ready and then went to NC State.


People here are real friendly. Some people used to have a hissy fit about foreigners coming from up north, but you don't hardly see that too much anymore. Most yankees I met are cool. Yankee isn't derogatory btw, just a word for people up north. People call Cary the Containment Area for Relocated Yankees. lol

But if you never lived near the south there are a few things you need to learn. We do things a little slower here, people talk slower cause we aint in no hurry. I've went to NYC about 20 years ago and it was so fast paced I could never live there. But I like yalls accents lol

You will learn as you go when you get here. I hope you like it here. Make sure you get some nabs and a cocola, or a RC cola, and try our fried chicken, it cant be beat. Sundays are fried chicken and home made biscuit days. Oh, never tell anyone you use can biscuits if you use them that is.

Welcome to North Carolina!

Something funny to read about the south, half of it aint true.

why do people move back up north after moving down south?
