The Benefits of Relocation
By Sklar & Associates In Uncategorized On August 1, 2011
There are many reasons to relocate from your city of birth during a lifetime – meeting new people, better or different weather, culture and a more intense or less stressful lifestyle. And now more money and a better job!
Some companies have a difficult time attracting talent to less popular locations and are paying higher salaries and benefits. In today’s WSJ (8/1/2011), companies are seeking talented professionals in NC, Nevada and Oklahoma. These jobs tend to be for tech professionals but we are seeing the same trend in media/advertising.
We have positions in Houston, Winston-Salem, Boston, Seattle as well as Chicago, NYC and LA.
The openings outside of Chicago/NYC/LA tend to be harder to fill especially in cities like Houston or Winston-Salem where there isn’t a large advertising community.
And many of the smaller markets happen to be more family friendly and offer a lifestyle that is more affordable than NYC.
Quality of life, good schools, strong sense of community – all of these factors may be attractive as we look at our lives and decide what’s next in our careers.
