What to Ask Before You Relocate for a Job

We loved this recent article in Marie Claire magazine about relocating for a job. Before you make the big move consider these three questions:

1. Will I get any help with my move? Will your new company pick up relocation expenses like a moving truck rental, professional movers, airfare, etc?

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.

3. How will I be paid? If you’re moving to a new country ask if you’ll be paid in U.S. dollars. According to Marie Claire, the best option is a split payroll – half your money in U.S. currency and the other half in the foreign currency.
