Moving away to a new destination is a hard choice to make. If you are moving for the first time and you have a long wait ahead of you before moving, then it is a good idea to use that time to prepare for the move. This is not strictly directed at the packing of all of your belongings and making arrangements for the actual physical move - though this is an important element to your relocation. The other preparation comes with becoming familiar with the area and getting to know your new neighbours.
During my recent move to Sudbury, I spent a lot of my time becoming familiar with the area and approaching the Sudbury recruitment agencies. If like me, you are moving to start out a new life in a different location, then you will need to have considered the job prospect and your ability to finance yourself. With any move, the first thing to do is to secure yourself a position of employment with a view to finding a long term accommodation.
One of the things that I had found when approaching the Sudbury recruitment agencies is, how each consultant had asked me why I was relocating. It is no use just saying that it is for a change or career change, you will need to give your reasons for moving. Much like a normal job interview, only you are going through an agency and seeking assistance on finding employment as quickly as you can. Always prepare to explain about your previous employment experience, with emphasis on how you could use your skills that you have picked up for potential employers.
Another thing that I had picked from some of the other Sudbury recruitment agencies is their keen interest in where I would be living. Some places look to find you something local to them and prefer you not to commute. Like most jobs, this is a sore spot and more often than none this cannot be avoided. However, if the opportunity arises where you will need to move away for your job and you are able to relocate then my advice would be for you to take it.
As Sudbury was my choice of destination for a new job, others may not have the choice to move to a location that they desire. It is a good idea to take your time in considering your options beforehand, as this is a decision that will be a big change in your life. Allow yourself some time to think about it, this is something you will be entitled to and you can use your time to find out as much as you can about the new location.
It is a daunting experience when you finally reach the point of where you will be moving for the first time. You will find that the stress will be alleviated if you spend some time making sure that you have a secure base and will not struggle once you are moved in. Always make sure you have a six-month contract with the accommodation you are staying at, or a contract with a break clause, as you will need to prepare yourself for the unexpected.
One final thing to remember is knowing your local emergency services. These include your local police station, hospital, doctor's surgery etc. Get yourself registered with the nearest doctor's surgery and dentists, so that you will not have to worry about looking for the right one. You may find that when you move, it will be too late to register onto their books, which is why it is important to do this as early as possible.
