Live Where the Work Is – Savannah GA’s Top Employers
When you’re shopping for a new home, it may be because you’re taking a new job, or it may be that you are looking for a fresh start. While many would never decide to move without a job waiting for them, some families find themselves relocating without ready employment for one or more family members. It’s very common for a spouse or older child to surrender their job to follow another family member in a move. In our new technology-heavy economy, many families have become more mobile due to one spouse having a portable career that does most of the heavy lifting for the family’s overall budget. And it isn’t unheard of for a family to have a strong desire to move to a certain area to be closer to other relatives, who may lend a helping hand until new jobs are found. Sometimes families simply want to make a change to a location they’ve dreamed about, or perhaps their move is directed by the military. For whatever reason, it’s likely that at least one member of the family will need to find a new job soon after the move.
