Ya Might Have To Relocate If You Want A Job

I can relate, got degrees from Cape Fear and UNCW, could not find a job in Wilmington that paid more than $9 an hour and decided to leave and go north. There are still tons of good jobs here in Philly, New Jersey and New York, even with the recession and much better pay. Plus its only an hour plane ride away If I still want to come to the beach.


A lot of people get degrees for jobs that in a lot of cases need no degree only experience. My son has 6 months to go at CFCC and already has a job offer from the Army Corp of Engineers. Supply and demand. Office managers are a dime a dozen. Wonder if she would make a good heavy diesel mechanic?
