Your next AV Career move is to Phoenix, AZ: Here’s Why

Saddle up cowboy, it’s time to go out West.

Looking for some fun in the sun in a city full of opportunity? Now is the perfect time to move to Phoenix and capitalize on your prospects out West. The 5th most populous city in the US, this city has just about everything a young professional could want. Reap the benefits of living in a big city: delicious food (tacos anyone?), a happening nightlife scene, and huge sporting complexes. But in Phoenix, you don’t have to deal with all the typical annoyances of a big city! Traffic is rarely a concern thanks to an easy-to-navigate grid road system, 20 miles of super clean, safe, and affordable light rail transportation, and bike-friendly commutes. In Phoenix, you can also go ‘off-grid’ by exploring the beautiful mountain and desert landscapes surrounding the city. All at a relatively low cost of living! So secure your next AV job in Phoenix and ride off into the sunset, cowboy.

What is there to Do in Phoenix?

Phoenix is world renowned for its breathtaking desert landscapes and gorgeous natural formations. Channel your inner Butch Cassidy by going horseback riding through the desert trails on Phoenix Mountains Preserve on State Route 51 or hiking on the backcountry terrain. For a more modern twist on outdoor adventure, go ziplining above the desert landscapes or ride in an airplane for a panoramic view of Camelback Mountain! Too dang hot? Might we suggest cooling off at one of the many area water parks or floating down the Salt River? With 189 parks, 33,000 acres of desert preserves, and 200 miles of trails, there’s no shortage of outdoor adventures to be had in Phoenix. On a date and they don’t like to get quite as much dirt on their boots? Take them out to the ballgame! The D’Backs’ stadium, Chase Field, is set up for the sweltering heat with a retractable roof to cool it down before you and your date arrive. With MLB spring training in Phoenix and the largest professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour – the Phoenix Open – odds are, you’ll run into your favorite athlete at some point! Don’t sit on the sidelines, head over to Phoenix today!

What is the Cost of Living in Phoenix?

With nearly 300 sunny days a year, it’s easy to see the bright side of things in Phoenix. One of the biggest perks of living in Phoenix is the big-city amenities without the big price tag! The cost of living in Phoenix is 5% lower than the national average. Not only are utility prices 4% lower than the national average but transportation expenses like bus fares and gas prices are also 8% lower than the national average. The estimated monthly costs for a single person are 928.15$ without rent. As more and more starry-eyed young people move out to Phoenix (60,000 Californians flocked to The Valley just last year alone!), you’d expect the cost of housing to increase but it has remained affordable!
