The tech industry accounts for five percent of the total regional economy and is the fastest growing. As part of their ongoing growth and continuing efforts to integrate the tech community here, the Charleston Digital Corridor provides a service under the name “CharlestonWorks”. Its mission is “Connecting You to Charleston’s Thriving Tech Economy”. This arm of the CDC recognizes the need to continually assist new talent who wish to make Charleston home. It supplies viewers with a directory and map of known tech and tech related companies in our area and assists those interested in making contact with the appropriate companies. Those seeking careers find this site very useful by being able to quickly view the companies that are hiring and linking them directly to their respective careers.
These and other efforts by the CDC make career seekers’ efforts to connect easier and more rewarding, thereby increasing the pace of employment into higher paying jobs that benefit all of us.
And the CDC’s efforts, in addition to fueling the growth of the local tech industry, fuels interest in the greater Charleston metro real estate industry. It enhances our stability and the long term prospects for continued steady growth. This, in turn, provides these new residents with a comfort level in real estate in their new locale and encourages them to become homeowners to further their participation in the future of Charleston.
And this benefits all of us! Our town and the benefits of living here just keep getting better and better! I look forward to hearing from you and assisting in your search for that perfect home.
