Career, Get the Job

3 Questions to Ask Before You Move for a Job

September 27, 2010

airplaneRelocating for a job can be a fantastic way to get a boost in pay, move up the career ladder and try a new adventure. But before you make the big move consider these three questions:

1. Will I get any help with my move? Many companies are willing to pick up relocation expenses like a moving truck rental, professional movers, airfare, etc – just ask.

2. Am I protected from being layed off? What if you move and your new employer decides to downsize — ask if you are protected from being layed off for a negotiated amount of time or if you’ll be compensated if a layoff does happen.

3. How will I be paid? If you’re moving to a new country ask if you’ll be paid in U.S. dollars.
