Tips for Relocating: How to Start Fresh in a New City
Moving to a new city won’t magically solve your problems. However, a change in location may be the perfect tonic if you’ve been foundering in your current job and location. A new city can lead to more job opportunities and a clean break from anything that’s holding you back. Here, Options and Traders Network offers some insight on how to decide if moving is right for you and how to make the leap.
How to prepare for a move in recovery
How can you be confident you’re making a smart move for your recovery? Here’s what to consider as you plan a move.
- Moving shouldn’t be an impulse decision driven by escapism. Be honest about your motives and choose your new location based on practical factors like a safe place to live, a like-minded community, good schools and job opportunities.
- Start applying for jobs before moving. Major employers are usually more willing to hire out-of-towners. Consider traveling to local industry events to build your network and learn about job opportunities.
- Identify MeetUp or networking groups where you can get to know people in your industry or who have similar interests.
- Hire moving help. Whether you hire full-service movers or pay for a few hours of loading and unloading help, it’s worth having an extra set of hands.
Finding somewhere to live in a new city
Beyond budget, what should you consider when searching for a rental in a new city?
- Choose the right neighborhood. Do you want a lively urban district or a quiet residential area? Pay attention to commute times, green space, and nearby businesses when choosing where to live.
- Convenient amenities like all-inclusive rent, in-unit laundry, and on-site fitness centers ease your transition if you’re moving into an apartment.
- If you’re renting a home, look for rentals with lawn care included or hire out for yard services so you don’t have to worry about buying a lawnmower right away.
Settling into your new home
Take these steps after arriving in your new city to start feeling at home.
- Make your move official by updating your license and registration with the motor vehicle office, registering to vote, and notifying important services of your new address.
- Find a new doctor, dentist, and mental health care provider in your network and set up an initial appointment.
- Put yourself out there. You won’t meet friends sitting at home. Introduce yourself to your neighbors, volunteer, and socialize at coworking spaces, coffee shops, and bars.
A change of scenery might be just what you need, but relocating takes some work. Set yourself up for a successful move by securing employment and housing ahead of time. With careful planning, your move can put you on the path toward the future you want.
