Relocating for a job is both exciting and confusing all at the same time, with several factors to consider before making a final decision. It’s never one-size-fits-all and should be given serious consideration before making the big move. Take a look at this short list of questions to see if relocating is right for you. Keep in mind each of these questions may mean something different for each individual. Some might value opportunity and experience over a culture fit and vice versa.
To help you get a jump-start on answering some of these questions we’ve compiled a few tips and tricks of our own:
- Do your research. Have you looked through the company’s social media? Do you like what you see? Could you see yourself fitting in there?
- Can you arrange a trip to visit the city, new office, and coworkers?
- Check Glassdoor for company reviews, salaries and benefits from employees.
- Make a pros and cons list.
- Listen to your gut.
You can do all the research on a new company and the position they’ve offered you, but if deep down you have a gut feeling that something isn’t right, you should follow your instincts. A job is more than money and benefits; it’s an opportunity to do what you love and to share that gift with others. So, the next time you’re offered a position in a new city and you’re unsure about relocating, take a look back at these questions and ask yourself-Is this right for me?
Recruiting companies more times than not get a bad rap for the way they do business. They hire candidates just to fill a position quickly and reap the benefits. As a result, the candidates are not properly paired with the right employer or position. We think that’s pretty backwards; don’t you?
At Conexess we aim to make the recruitment process pain-free, and even fun. Mentioned in our last blog, it’s essential to build a genuine relationship with a candidate in order for us to truly place them in the right position.
Still hesitant about working with a recruiting company? These are just some of the benefits you will receive if you change your mind and decide to work with us:

In this day and age, time is our biggest asset. Handing over the “job-searching reins” to a recruiter takes a load of stress off your shoulders. Doesn’t that sound nice? But wait, there’s more!
- A Wider Array of Choices
We’ve been in the business of bridging the gap between talent and opportunity for over 20 years, so needless to say we know the industry pretty well and we have contacts that you might not. We even have a giant list of career opportunities on our website for you to apply to.
- A Perfect Match
Our recruiters take the time to get to know you. We find out more than what you listed on your resume so we can match you with a position that will set you and your future employer up for success.
Keep in mind, not all recruiting companies are one and the same. It is a sad truth that most recruiting firms use a churn-and-burn method that fills positions quickly and satisfies a candidate’s need for instant gratification. In return, their turnover rate is sky-high and candidate satisfaction is at rock-bottom. Take a look at our website or one of our social media sites. We think you’ll like what you see.
