Relocating for a job

Has anyone relocated just for a job offer and did it work out? I have 2 offers from other offices still in the same state. One is 3 hours away and the other is 4 hours away. Both pay $12/hour more than I am getting now with benefits which I don’t get now. My husband makes most of the money now but he also goes to college part time and he is getting burnt out. He wants to quit work so he can take more than 1 class a semester and spend time with our kids. I’m nervous to sell our house, move away from family and be the only one taking care of the bills. But if I don’t take one of the offers he is going to quit school which I don’t want. What if I don’t like it or worse they fire me for some reason? Then we are 200 miles from home and both of us have no jobs. And jobs in my area are either part time or full time with crappy pay that won’t support my family like these job offers could. Advice please!

I agree with Lrskda. A working interview would be great to really see how the office works on a daily basis and how the Dr. is with his patients. I moved for a dental position much like yours sounds and for the same reasons. Only mine was a 10 hour move from home and to a different state. My husband started his own business when we moved. We rented a home for awhile until I was sure I wanted to remain in that position. We were there for 4 years and the experience I gained working in that area was amazing and career building. Change in any arena can be scary and nerve wracking. Explore all of the opportunities, make a list of the positive and negative aspects and above all pray! 🙂 Good Luck in your decision :).

You should do a working interview with both offices. This is a good way to see if you like the way they run the office and gives you a chance to see the dentists work. I personally will not work for a dentist I wouldn’t have work on my teeth.

Is it possible in addition to a working interview, you can do a 1 month trial? Keep everything in place at home for now, do the working interviews and then decide , or divide up the work week between the two offices for a while until you choose.

How did this turn out for you? I’m thinking of relocating for better opportunities
