You got that fancy promotion you have been vying for, congratulations. The new position comes with a bigger salary, better perks, and a generous sign-on bonus. However, part of the deal is moving across country. People relocate for work all the time but that does not mean it is easy. Priority Moving is here to guide you through the ins and outs of moving across country when you are relocated for a new job.
Often, companies will pay a chunk of the cost of relocating a new employee. Many large companies have relationships with local relocation services which can net you a major discounted rate. Some companies may even offer a buyout option if your old home does not sell before you move out. Very often, you can get more moving benefits with some skillful negotiation on your part.
One of the first things you need to figure out when moving across country for a job is what the daily commute from your house to work is like. It’s better to go into it with at least some knowledge rather than jump in blind. A long commute does not necessarily rule out a job offer, it just depends on your personality.
You should also make an effort to keep in contact with old professional contacts and begin building your network. Consider asking HR is they can connect you with some of your future coworkers or people in the industry. It is also a good idea to check out local meetups and conventions to put yourself out there.
