Career Calling

November 30, 2013

Follow Opportunity and Follow the Job

One of my clients wants to get out of Chicago.  She’s looking for a warmer climate and asked me how to find a job in a new city.  I gave her this advice: Act like you live in that city.

Learn about the companies in that city that need your skills.  Find local professional associations and groups that will help you identify potential employers.  It’s not enough to use the same old job boards like Indeed, Monster, or CareerBuilder.  The more you learn about the place where you want to live, the better you will be able to manage a career transition.
