I'm applying for this job on the other side of the country (in a city that I've already decided I'd like to live in) but if I get it I don't know how I'd move our family there. How did you do it? Would I have to move out there first, get settled in, find a place to live and THEN bring my husband and son out? Or do I look for a place before I'm even sure I got the job and hope everything works out so we can all move together? How does this work? I didn't expect an opportunity like this to happen so quickly so I haven't had much time to mentally prepare!Answer Question

Always secure the job before moving an entire family. Make sure the company will pay you for your move.

My husband relocated from CA to IL in June 08. At the time of the move, we had a son entering his SR year in HS and a daughter finishing her final semester of undergrad. I stayed on working in CA until the Summer of 2009, and my husband lived in corporate housing in Chicago. Currently, the kids live and attend college and grad school in CA-I work very part time in CA and commute back and worth- We sold a large home in CA and purchased smaller homes in each new city. The Company provided our move as part of a Corporate relocation package.
