Charlotte, North Carolina

I need some insight into the area. I'm visiting for some interviews at the end of the month and wanted to look at some apartments at the same time... What area should I be looking into? I'd like something nice for around 800 a month. So far from looking online it looks like uptown is the place to be, but I haven't seen any decently priced apartments there. What are the surronding areas? and which ones are the best to look into. I'd like to be as close to the city as possible... thanks for any advice!
