Jobs in Charleston, South Carolina, United States

The oldest and largest city in South Carolina Charleston is a historic delight. Sitting on an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean known as Charleston Harbor the city was formed in 1670. Initially a port town Charlestown’s rich history is entwined with that of the slave trade. A popular tourist destination the city is known as “America’s Most Friendly City.”

A Thriving Economy

Unsurprisingly for a major tourist destination the vast majority of jobs in Charlestown rely on the tourism trade. The city’s many luxury hotels employ a great number of staff, as do the smaller hotels, inns and bed and breakfasts. The restaurant and catering trade is another large employer, which is also heavily reliant on the tourism industry. Those establishments serving Lowcountry cuisine are particularly popular. A third sector that relies on the tourism industry is the city’s many museums, landmarks and historic buildings. Charlestown’s Historic District, along with a number of related buildings, such as Calhoun Mansion, employ many people. Those wishing to work alongside historic objects and buildings are drawn to Charleston’s many opportunities.

Charleston is also home to two large shipping terminals, which are run by South Carolina’s Port Authority. They make up one of the largest seaport containers in North America. The size and importance of these ports and the cargo that they handle means that many people are employed here in a variety of roles.

In recent years Charleston has become a hot spot for information technology jobs and corporations. This is partly due to the establishment of the Charleston Digital Corridor. Notable companies include Blackbaud, BoomTown and CSS. As well as these major companies you can also find a number of small start-ups in the city. This means that Charleston is an ideal location for you to start your career in technology.

A Lively Social Life

Charleston is known for its unique culture, which blends elements of the traditional south with English, French, and West African influences. The downtown area has a well earned reputation for its cultural scene. Held here every year Spoleto Festival USA is on of the world’s largest arts festivals.

Charleston is also known for its local seafood. This is a key ingredient in the city’s unique cuisine, which is made up largely of plates such as gumbo, Lowcounty boil and grits.

Despite its historic appearance Charleston is a lively and welcoming city with a good cost of living. Thanks to its willingness to embrace new technologies Charleston’s economy and employment opportunities are increasingly modern and forward looking.
