According to the San Diego Regional EDC website, their mission is to maximize the region’s economic prosperity and global competitiveness. Their latest move to maximize economic prosperity involves a new website and campaign aimed at helping local employers recruit top talent. The website is called San Diego: Life. Changing.
While the website does raise the visibility of San Diego to job candidates looking to relocate to San Diego, it also provides great tools for those of us who already live here. The San Diego Regional EDC describes this launch as a campaign about real people who have chosen San Diego and have changed the world and upgraded their lives along the way. The video below is part of this campaign. After watching it, how could you not want to move to San Diego and buy a home?
The website is divided into 3 main sections: work, live, and explore. Let’s take a look at each.
This section talks about local companies, the growing local business climate, and networking opportunities. There is also a section dedicated to beer. San Diego has a strong craft beer culture and Ballast Point is probably the best story of a small San Diego company hitting it big.
This section gets into the real estate world a bit more. You can find a guide to getting around the City, higher education options, and a moving guide. Check out my steps to buying a house in San Diego, which explains what happens from start to closing escrow and moving in.
The third main section of the website is a guide to what to do in San Diego. This section is useful for prospective residents and current residents alike. Here you can find great places to eat out, fun things to do outdoors, what’s going on with the local art scene, a calendar of events, day trip ideas, and recommended places to go.
