Changing a job is almost as stressful as moving to a new city. It’s even worse when you have to do both at the same time. Yes, you’re starting a new adventure. But at the same time, a lot of your life is going to change at once.
In this article, we’ll give you some tips for staying sane when changing your job and your home at the same time.
Make Sure You Have Enough Money for a Move
The first step to making a good move is setting yourself up for financial success. If a company was willing to hire you when you lived far away, the chances are, they really think you can add value to your company.
That’s good because it means they may be willing to finance some of your moving costs. Preferably, before you move, you should ask about their “relocation package.” This is essentially the amount of money they give you to ensure that you can reasonably move to the new job.
Try to Get There a Day or Two Early
This is one of the big advantages of making sure you have enough money to make the trip a day or two ahead of time. If you quit your job on Friday and try to get to the new job on Monday, you’re going to be stressed. This isn’t going to put you in the right headspace when you train for your new job. Plus, moving during the weekend is more expensive than moving during the week!
Midweek moves are cheaper. Even better, Moving during midweek allows you to start unpacking your belongings before going to work. This means you’ll be able to feel at home more quickly, and you’ll be in the right mindset for work.
