Relocation. Factors in a tight Market
Filed under: Position Searching, Mentoring, Recruiters, Post-docs, Technicians
Posted by: site admin @ 2:14 pm

It seems more common than not that
desired
jobs might involve changing
where we live.
  Several ACS members
have shared their
experiences changing
jobs staying in the
same area.  That is,
in fact a consideration
we should all
factor into
job changes these days
accept a position
where you can have
a reasonable chance of finding another job,
if needed.

Previous entries have detailed factors
in
strong economic times  1 , like a
relocation
area trip with significant
others, company
policies, and
re-establishing a family support
system. 
Another entry 
2   provided checklists,
negotiation items, and insights from
others
about moving.

A. Hoak also offered that these
decisions are not clear cut and require
balancing competing desires, needs and
personal likes.  People facing these
choices
can be involved in a merger, a
cutback where
divisions are closed or
re-organized, or a drop
in business or
end of an era of product.  It
might be
helpful for them to have career

consultant (
ACS CCP) to share their
concerns
and get an experienced
person’s view.


Another perspective is based on real
estate considerations
