With a healthy population blend of young, skilled and seasoned employees, the Charleston market has a wide variety of readily available workers. Though the age range is fairly diverse, the largest bracket is ages 25-54. This is a telltale factor as to why this area is so vibrant — the largest percentage of residents are either just learning the ropes or truly hitting their professional stride.

The Charleston region stands ready with a workforce of over 350,000. An average of 34 new people move to the region daily, and it’s no surprise why. The quality of life that the Charleston market offers is unparalleled.
