When a company is willing to move you to an office located in another state for a job position, you’ll likely be excited. But before you celebrate, you must ask a few questions about your potential new job and corporate relocation. Below our Seattle corporate movers provide you with a list of things you should know before accepting a corporate relocation.
Take advantage of your first few interviews with a company to learn what the duties and responsibilities that come with your potential job position. Ask about the day-to-day schedule you can expect and how the company measure performance and success. This way, you’ll know if you’ll be a good fit for the job. Also, you’ll know what will be expected of you should you accept the job offer.
Moving for work will give you sense of place and purpose because you’ll already have a safety net of connections once you move to your new community. Making friends at the office is a great way to acclimate to your new location. However, the more familiar you are with the area before you take the plunge and move, the better.
Request the company you are interviewing with for some local resources to learn more about the area. Plus, ask them to connect you with current employees that also moved from out of state, so you can talk with them about their experience.
To schedule your moving date at the right time, you should know when you will be expected to start working at your new job. Find out whether the company will offer you some flexibility when it comes to your starting date because moving, especially if you must move with your family, can be a long process. Preferably, the company should be willing to give you about two months of wiggle room.
When a company asks you to move for a job, the job offer typically comes with a corporate relocation package. Make sure to understand what that corporate relocation package includes so you’ll know how much of your moving expenses will be compensated by the company. If the company is only offering you a partial relocation package, you may be able to negotiate for more reimbursement.
