Should You Relocate for a Job?

Before you call the movers, there are many factors to take into consideration when relocating for a job opportunity.

Moving within your own state is costly and traumatic enough, but when you’re looking beyond the state line, even more needs to be weighed carefully.

Here are a few important items to think about before you make a move, the key is proper planning:

1.) Is the unemployment rate where you are now higher or lower than the area you are exploring? If it’s lower where you live, think twice about relocation. Be very cautious about figures. For example, the state unemployment rate might be much less than the county you are researching.
