But that’s an image of 30 years ago. Modern San Diego is much more than just a small community of retirees and a great surf center.
San Diego is now a great innovation center in biotechnology, with hundreds of mid-sized biotech firms – and some giants such as Amylin Pharmaceuticals.
In other words: if you are looking for a job in this part of California, and if you are in the biotech and pharmaceutical sector, San Diego offers a wealth of opportunities.
Obviously, where there are thousands of well-paid technical jobs there are also many times more jobs in other sectors – from “unskilled” jobs such as hairdressers, waiters, carpenters and drivers, to jobs in the education and health services sectors.
Bottom line: there are many jobs in these last areas too, in modern San Diego
Anyway, that’s not just in the biotech sector that San Diego leads. San Diego is also an interesting innovation hub in the electronic hardware for telecommunications. You will find a number of jobs in this industry cluster too.
