Best Charleston, SC Firms
« on: May 15, 2008, 12:43:48 PM »
Anyone have any input on the best/most lucrative places to work in Charleston, SC?  Either home offices or satellite offices of bigger firms?  Thanks!

I like Charleston, but if I don't find good work there I'm sure I'll look at Charlotte, Atlanta, D.C., etc.

As a side note, if you're interviewing in Charleston, you need to be able to tell them the last time you were in Charleston and some convincing connections/reasons why you want to live there. 

Yes but who would want to live in Charleston? Except coma lovers.
