Not everyone that comes to Raleigh searching for a place to live already has a job awaiting them. The reality of Raleigh’s thriving economy in the midst of a global recession is enough to bring the throngs in from out of state in hopes of finding gainful employment and building a better financial future for themselves and their families.
If you’re moving to Raleigh to find employment, it’s going to make all the sense in the world to find an apartment near enough to the financial districts to allow the quick, convenient access necessary to pavement pounding. Not that you’ll be doing much of that—if you’re already savvy enough to look for rental opportunities online you’re probably already scouting out employment opportunities there as well, but it never hurts to stay close in the event that you receive an out-of-the-blue interview callback.
Search for apartments in the Brier Creek/RTP (Research Triangle Park) vicinity. The Brier Creek area of Raleigh gives you convenient access not only to Triangle Park, but also places you within a short distance to the Durham airport, I-40, and I-540. Not to mention potential employers like Cisco Systems, DuPont, Fidelity Investments, LabCorp, Red Hat, and Verizon (to name just a few).
