Your spouse has just been informed that in order to stay employed, he or she must relocate. Yo may at first be reluctant to begin the process of searching for employment in unfamiliar territory. Before you begin job searching, try researching your new town or city. Read through a local newspaper online. Look particularly for news of companies that are expanding, news of promotions or transfers (that may create vacancies). Discover organizations that look interesting to you. If you went to college, use your alumni office to obtain information on any fellow alumni that reside in your new place. Establishing contacts ahead of time is key! Research local churches, synagogues, or national organizations that you may be affiliated with may also be useful.
