Jobs in Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston, SC Employment Information

Charleston, South Carolina Overview

Not to be confused with Charleston, West Virginia, Charleston, South Carolina has a rich history as the oldest city in the state. Known by the locals as where the Cooper and Ashley Rivers meet, this coastal town is home to over 700,000 citizens. Originally named Charles Towne in 1670 to honor King Charles II, the southern city adopted its current name in 1783.

Charleston's well-maintained architecture, beautiful restaurants and genteel residents emphasize the city's rich southern history. Don't worry about not knowing anyone if you're moving to Charleston for work—the city was voted "America's Most Friendly City" by Travel and Leisure.

Charleston Job Opportunities

There are plenty of opportunities when it comes to Charleston jobs. Many residents of this bustling coastal city work at a few places that employ a large amount of people. Because of its proximity to the water, many Charleston residents work for the US Navy and other sea-based operations. The Medical University of South Carolina—a teaching hospital—is another top employer, giving jobs to over 10,000 doctors, nurses, administrative assistants and maintenance workers.

The three school districts—Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester—employee the city's teachers, but also administrative and maintenance workers. Other opportunities include retail positions, so Sales associate jobs in Charleston are easy to come by.

Charleston Employment Trends

According to the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce, unemployment continues to decline — good news for those seeking work in Charleston. Because Charleston is a coastal and tourist-driven town, finding permanent work in the summer months is difficult due to seasonal hiring, but for the most part, Charleston's unemployment rate seems to be dropping each month since June 2013. Because of the large teaching hospital, nursing jobs are becoming increasingly popular, and an increasing amount of nursing school graduates seek employment at the hospital and other surrounding clinics.

Charleston Cost of Living

Living in Charleston isn't like living in many of the bigger cities. Cost of living is average, as is common in the southeast United States. Residents can expect to pay around $750/month in rent or buy a house for around $200,000. Taxes are lower than the US average, but so is the average salary, proportionally. Living in Charleston, with cost of living and average income in mind, is nearly the exact average cost of living of all the states. Charleston's lifestyle won't make saving a breeze, but you won't have to worry about not getting what you pay for.
