My husband and I want to move to Daytona, we are empty nesters, we have a dog. I have a degree in Information Technology, he is a hospitality/Hotel GM. Starting to look for employment Daytona/Ormand Beach area. Any jobs pertaining to Information Technology? When we vacation there, we love the beaches and the hotels and the general feel of relaxation..Since we are not getting any younger (we're both 44) We want to move and start a new life.

My current field of employment is Executive Administration trying to switch to IT field.

Comments/suggestions.. Where to start looking?

Yeah the pier area aint what it used to be, further north in Ormand beach or up to Flagler the beaches can be quite nice.

Daytona and Daytona Beach are NOT two different towns. It's one city called Daytona Beach. "Daytona" is just what people call it for short.

FSUMike is right! The whole thing, both the beachside and the mainland side, are called Daytona Beach. Other nearby areas which basically connect with each other here in the Daytona Beach area are South Daytona, Port Orange, Holly Hill, Ormond Beach, Ormond By the Sea and New Smyrna Beach.

Since this is a tourist based economy here he shouldn't have a problem getting a job. I am not sure about you, though we do have places like universities and colleges, hospitals, etc. where you may want to apply. Try University of Central FL, Daytona campus, Daytona State College, Bethune Cookman University, Embry Riddle Areonautical University and Halifax Medical Center. You may not be interested at all in working in those environments. If so, let us know. I am sure someone around here will have some ideas.


Good luck and wow, empty nesters already at 44! I'm 51, my DH is 58 and we still have a 10 y/o at home!

Arrow Welcome!

Pffft!

How do I reply to such ignorance? ...
when people OUTSIDE the area have such great perceptions from their visits 20 years ago as Tourists?
BUT ARE THEY ACCURATE NOW?

(I'll be getting on the Montreal Forum soon with my insights from MY visits there a ways back!)

Hmmm...

There's a STICKY POST at the top of the Florida Forum on general info. about relocating/employment issues.

Here are a few links about Daytona Beach you might be interested in for starts:
Downtown/Beach Street Neighborhood Areas:
Our Daytona Beach - Rebranding Our Neighborhoods, Reimagining Our City
Beachside/Main Street Neighborhood Areas:
Our Daytona Beach - Rebranding Our Neighborhoods, Reimagining Our City

Oh and yeah, here is a map of National Register Historic Districts in Daytona Beach you might be interested in moving to (which are hard to come by in the rest of Florida, since MOST of it was developed AFTER WWII):

You are right ,where did i ever get the idea it was two separate cities, its a misconception i've been under since the early 70's

daytonadewd sorry for upsetting you with my ignorance.It came from the time back in the 70's when i was living in Flagler Beach while constructing the Bunnel high school..
