Some of the candidates that we are working with choose to pursue opportunities that require relocation.Top Reasons Candidates Relocate:
- Huge career opportunity
- Looking for a better and more affordable lifestyle
- Move closer to family
- Move to a better climate
Things to Consider when Relocating:
Did you ever seriously discuss relocation with your spouse or family? Communicating with family and kids (especially if they are teenagers) is critical.
- Timing matters especially if you have kids. Will you wait till school ends? Time it with a school break if not during the summer
- Majority of our relo candidates rent a place before settling down in a new location as it’s important to research desirable neighborhoods where you want to make roots in. Easier to search for a permanent location with a temporary home base
- If you rent, you may need to break a lease, so if you are on the job market, best to keep your lease to a month to month
- If you own and have family and you need to be at new location fast, just rent at your new place of work and do a delayed relo to get an idea of your new location first and minimizing impact of relo for your family until you are ready.
- Not all companies offer relo packages, so make sure you indicate early in the process if you need assistance to make the move.
- Minimize any strings that you may have holding you back from relocating.
