New City, new country: Relocation – do it yourself!

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Relocation

You got a job offer in foreign country? You are not sure to take the job, because it seems you have tons to organize beforehand, in a foreign country? There is no need for worries!! Take the job, don’t worry about relocation in the foreign country. It is a great opportunity for you. You can manage your own relocation with help of an online tool.

But first: What is relocation and what is important?
You need to ask yourself the most important questions of:

  • Where do I want to live and what is my budget?
  • What do I need to do administration-wise?
  • Are my language skills sufficient? – Where can I improve my language skills?
  • How can I build a new social life in the new city? What do I want to do in my leisure time?

As soon as you answered these questions for yourself you need to think of what to start with. Which order is best for the steps you need to take? Thinking about this is important to prevent unforeseen chaos and disappointments; some administrative steps need to be taken in a specific order. The amount of the steps you need to take depends on your profile and your personal circumstances.

Online relocation tools can support you with this. Most effective are online tools which take into account your individual facts. You just need to provide the system with information about your circumstances, status and preferences; the online tool will then provide a step-by-step path with all steps you need to take. One such online tool is Gohelp.y.

Outlook for the next part of the series: Relocation as a worker – what does this mean specifically?
