It depends what your career field is. Right now, most of the triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) is suffering because so many of their jobs are based in RTP which is mostly tech companies and they are cutting back. (ex. IBM headquarters). We just moved because my husband couldn’t find a software engineering position after being laid off GlaxoSmithKline and Quintiles are also big companies there in the pharmaceutical field. As far as schools go, I would probably send my child to private school or live in Cary as opposed to Raleigh. I don’t like the way Raleigh buses kids all over the city to fill racial quotas in each school. I think kids should go to the high school that is closest to their house. If you can’t live in Cary then i would live in North Raleigh near wakefield. Ive heard that the hs in wakefield isn’t bad.

    Since this recession has started, North Carolina has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. There are tons of folks here looking for a job…you’ll have a hard time competing with people who are already here.

    Yes, to answer your question, there are both good schools and good jobs. With the recession the jobs are harder to come by, but it really depends what field you are looking for a job in. Raleigh was just named #1 in the county for careers and businesses by Forbes Magazine! Now, that doesn’t take away the fact that there is a large unemployment rate. Again, it depends on which field. We have two small businesses and you would never know there was a recession!

    As far as the schools go, for years Wake County schools were in the top three in the country. They are still very good! I have clients that move here from all over the world (and the states) that can’t say enough good things about the schools. This is partly because of the diversity. So, the bussing issue isn’t really an issue if you look at it from that standpoint.

    You didn’t mention housing, but the housing prices here are great compared to NY!! Especially if you don’t mind a 15 minute commute into downtown.
