I have exciting news to share today! Career advice website Careerealism.com has shared a guest post I wrote today.

The article, “5 Tips for Transitioning to a New City” gives advice on how to tackle the unusual task of relocating to a new city mid-career.

It can happen to anyone. You’ve been living and working in one city for years. Things were going along fine until you decided you wanted to move to a new city. You might be looking for different career opportunities. Or, maybe you want to live close to a mountain so you can ski. Your parents may be getting older and you may want to be within driving distance of them in case of emergencies.

Whatever your reason, the challenge is the same. Relocating to another city mid-career can present unique obstacles, especially if you’ve never lived there before. In large cities, there may be enough local talent to fill existing jobs. In small cities, companies may not have the budget to relocate external candidates, so they may overlook you.

To get my 5 tips and to learn how you can relocate to a new city, check out my entire article on Careerealism here.
