Congratulations! You’ve just been offered the job of your dreams. There’s only one problem. You live on the East Coast and the job is on the West Coast. With a salary, benefits, and a whopping 4 weeks of vacation that is too good to pass up – there seems to be only one option: it’s time to move.
We understand that moving, whether it’s across the country or to another city nearby, can be a stressful and overwhelming ordeal.
Which is why we’re offering a few tips on how to make your transition to a new city as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Location, Location, Location
Finding the right neighborhood in your new city can make all the difference in the world. When looking for that perfect location, consider the following:
Maybe you like to cook but in the off-chance you don’t, check Yelp to find the area with the most highly rated restaurants. If you do consider yourself a chef in your own right, look for highly rated grocery stores and markets.
Do you like to see live theater or comedy? Or do you prefer seeing a baseball game? Check your new city’s paper to see what events you can expect to find throughout the week. Then find out where those events are happening.
As you research different neighborhoods, try to find a neighborhood with a culture and feel that fits your lifestyle. To do this, consider asking someone at your new job or even checking out blogs and forums that discuss your new city.
Your new, awesome, fun job will become a lot less awesome and fun if you have to spend 2 hours a day commuting. Try to find somewhere to live that’s close to your new job. Also, be sure to use Google Maps traffic option to see just how bad traffic can get for any given commute. Not to mention saving your car from added wear and tear.
When making the big move, be sure to take each of these things into account so you can avoid moving across the country to place you don’t even enjoy.
