How do I move to a new city without a job?
The first step in preparing to move without a job is to ensure you have enough money to live on while looking for employment in the new city or town. This is in addition to all moving-related costs. Take into consideration either six months rent or a solid down payment, plus food, living expenses, and utilities.
How early should you look for a job before moving?
In short, I’d recommend starting 3-4 months before you plan on needing a job. This can depend a lot on the economy in the city you’re moving to, and how in-demand your skill-set is. For the reader above, I actually recommended 2-3 months maximum because Nurses usually have no trouble finding interested employers.
