I graduated today and know

I graduated today and know that NC has no job waiting for me. However, I will not have any problem finding a job teaching high school English in Mississippi. It's pretty sad actually, the poorest state in the country has more to offer me than my home state of NC. Of course Mississippi and many other states need teachers worse than NC, but I think it's pathetic on North Carolina's part that the poorest state in the country, Mississippi, has more to offer to NC natives and grads than NC does. UNCW certainly did not have a problem with me spending tens of thousands of dollars to get my education; but NC, Wilm specifically has a huge prob with giving me a job post-graduation.
