Hello job seekers. If you find any links that don't send you where they should, then let me know. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/338496005/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Feb-6
These two counties on the north coast of Washington have relatively high unemployment rates compared to neighboring counties such as Kitsap, Pierce, King and Snohomish counties. It is very tempting to just get up and move to these locations since commuting may be just too far to go and back five days a week. Here is a list of things to consider when making a move to that job in a different locale.
1) Cost to move (moving van, rent, deposits, moving helpers, gas, etc)
2) Brand new (where are the schools, shopping areas, no friends or relatives)
3) New area characteristics (crime, neighborhood atmosphere, weather)
Making a move for a job may be a good career move, but it will result in you starting over again. Military members and dependents live this life. So do some people whose jobs involve a lot of displacement. Others prefer to stay in one area, even though this might hurt them financially. They prefer setting down roots, no matter the cost. Make your choice wisely.
