JOB SEARCH Q&A: Should I move for a job?

By Ilene Rein, Executive Recruiter and Job Search Strategist

Are you considering moving for a job? You're not alone. Many people are in the same boat, trying to decide if the new opportunity is worth the move. There are pros and cons to both decisions, so how do you know which one is right for you? Well, that all depends on your specific situation.

If you're unhappy in your present job, a new position may be the fresh start you need to rediscover your enthusiasm for work. However, if you're content with your current job and want to move, uprooting your life for a new one isn't necessarily worth it.


It's a good idea to think about the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative before making any decisions. Take into account things like commute time, company culture, and pay when making your decision. Don't forget to consider your personal life as well; will relocating for work affect your routine or relationships?

If after careful consideration you decide that moving for a job is the right decision for you, put together a solid game plan as you head out for your new endeavor. Make sure you have your finances in order and know exactly what your new position entails. With a little preparation, you can make sure your transition to a new job is as smooth as possible.

So, should you move for a job? The answer is complicated, and it depends on your specific situation. However, if you're unhappy in your current job or want to move for other reasons, a new position may be just what you need. On the other hand, if you're content with your current job and don't want to uproot your life, staying put might be the better decision.
