Have you been offered a job abroad or maybe you are actively seeking jobs abroad? Before relocation for work, there are some things to think about. Finding a place to live, schools for your children, what items do you want to bring from home can be hard. It can be exciting or a complete logistical nightmare. Here you have my tips that made my moves smooth as silk.
1 - Connect with your fellow expats
2 - Research the city
It might be given to do a little investigation of your potential new town. For example, get to know the cost of living in the new city. Surprisingly, this can make a big difference in your salary. Also, make sure to look into if the city offers the things you love most. Take time to get to know your new environment before you move.
3 - Easy travel and moving
Start by researching moving costs (truck rentals, quotes from professional movers, transportation expenses, temporary housing, storage, etc.) Moving companies offer various options, so make sure you get the one you need. Maybe the cost for the move is something that you can negotiate in you contract?
4 - The city admin burden
5 - Make sure to have savings
