Hi, my husband is in the management/sales fields, I was wondering how the job market is in CHarleston, we are thinking of Mount Pleasant for housing, and Charleston for work. Any input would be helpful, thanks!

Mount Pleasant is beautiful but a little crowded. Charleston has a robust diverse economy. The pay in service sector jobs and retail are pretty low though.

Hello and welcome to the whole Charleston experience! There is a lot of work in this area for management people. Please keep in mind the science areas that do contract work for the military.

My hubby lived in Mt P for 25 years. He found that he could get much more house for the dollar in Goose Creek. He bought me a 5 bedroom, 4 bath for 2/3 the cost of a 3 bed/2bath in Mt. P. We have 2 highschools, a third is under construction. Several new grade schools have been built in the last couple of years, plans to upgrade the downtown are in the works. Oh, and there is a great community gym with indoor walking tracks! Membership for the year is less than most gyms charge for a single month.

Now, here's the part I like. It is easy to get anywhere! There is a mall less than 3 miles from GC, a fun couple of strip malls with everything from Barnes and Noble to Linens N Things, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, K-Mart, and 2 Walmarts! and still only 15 minutes from the Historical District downtown.

Top selling point for me, the neighbors. It's a joy to step outside and be greeted with a wave and hello. As we are getting older, it's lovely to have different neighbors stop by and ask if there is anything they can do to help with the yards or house. I used to think we were just lucky to get such a great neighborhood, but I keep seeing this same attitude all across town.

Where ever you decide to settle, enjoy! Become part of your neighborhood and it will be home.
