Thinking about moving for work?
Moving for a job may seem intimidating at first. Not only are you relocating to an unfamiliar city and leaving friends and family behind, but you have to navigate all the changes and emotions that come with starting a new position.
But recent research shows that these types of moves can be positive. According to a study by the human resources firm Impact Group, many have seen improvements in both their personal and professional lives following a move! Making friends, discovering new experiences, having better career opportunities, and living in good communities are some of the biggest draws to moving for work.
What you look for in a city may differ from the next person, but some common factors help make a destination desirable, such as:
- Having many things to do (diverse entertainment and dining options, cultural enrichment)
- Good career opportunities (a low unemployment rate with a healthy job market)
- A positive sense of place (good schools, low crime rate)
