Charlotte Jobs: Overview
If you want a downtown experience in Charlotte, head uptown. That's what the locals have called it since the 1970s when city council named the shopping and business district "Uptown Charlotte." You might also hear that Charlotte jobs are in the Queen City, named after Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany, who reigned when the city was founded. And don't worry about being told you're in the "Hornet's Nest." The nickname stuck after a British general failed to invade Charlotte during the Revolution—he called the city the "Hornet's Nest of the Rebellion." The Charlotte Hornets adopted the name in 1988 when they became the city's first NBA team.
Today, Charlotte is the largest city in the state of North Carolina and the third-fastest-growing major city in the U.S. New residents might be pleased to learn that Charlotte has an affordable housing market and that prescription medications, groceries, and Social Security retirement benefits are not taxed. Most Charlotte jobs are a 23.8-minute commute from suburbs like Concord, Gastonia, and Huntersville.
