Ask the Readers: Would You Relocate for the Perfect Job? (Chance to win!)
*** Congrats to our winners! ***
"I'd relocate for a great, perfect, or possibly even an OK job (if it was something that I was excited about and would pay well)--but I'd only move if boyfriend could come with me. We're currently three hours apart, and in four months I'll be moving to his city to continue my education."
Some people are just happy to be where they are — and no amount of money (or the perfect job) could move them. Others are more flexible, willing to follow their dreams to the ends of the earth for a chance at something more. Many of us are somewhere in the middle: open to the right opportunity, but not eager to pack it all up and move across country for just any 'ol job.
Where do you stand on this issue? Have you relocated for the "perfect" job? How about just an "OK" job? Or have you put down roots right where you're at.. forever?
