- Who all are affected?
Obviously, you are affected greatly, with all the negotiating and getting yourself to move into a new home. But, if you are family person, you have to think about the other members of your family too, how their lives will change. Will the new town or city have good educational institutions and is the locality safe for children?
If you decide on moving away alone, with your family staying where it is, you will still be affecting them. Your immediate family will have to adjust to your not being around so much. Then there are time zones and office schedules. You will have to plan carefully so that you give enough time to speak with your friends and family, and upholding all responsibilities as well.
- The new cost of living
At the negotiating stage of a job, you may feel pressurized and accept anything they are offering, just so that they don’t pull back the job offer. Negotiating is a critical part of the job interview process, but to do it right, you need to know about where you’ll be living. Research about the rent, the area you’ll be living in, the kind of people around and if all facilities and easily available. You should also have knowledge about the local gas rates, taxes, prices of basic food items and grocery. Research will help you know how much you need to make each month to afford the cost of living in your new town, plus any other expenses you know you’ll need.
- The traffic
People generally don’t think about the traffic. Traffic decides how much of time and money you’ll be spending on traveling daily. Even if you live 15 miles from your new office, but in a city with heavy traffic, it may take you hours to reach work every day.
- Seriousness for the job
Before you finalize on all the above mentioned points, making certain adjustments and sacrifices, you should consider, one more time, whether all this is worth it. Will this be worth the moving expense, the stress and the adjustment period you may need after relocating? The answer should be satisfying, both to your brain and your bank account!
