    It really depends on what state you are in and how much experience you have, so you should ask in the North Carolina forums.

    NC is tricky. I worked at UNC (FTE and a traveler) and in Raleigh. Cost of living is much higher than pay . In 2000 I started at a WHOPPING $15.25/hr. I hear that the average new grad is now $18-20/hr but a 1 bedroom in a decent complex in atleast $700 not including utilities.
