Survey finds more willing to relocate for better pay

With the economy both in the U.S. and Canada still hurting, more people admit they are willing to relocate for the right job, according to a recent survey from CareerBuilder. This can lead to other stresses like selling a current home and figuring out storage solutions for valuables.

The survey was conducted from November 9 to December 5, 2011, and was sent out to more than 3,000 employers and 7,000 workers.

From the data, researchers noted that 32 percent of employers would be willing to pay for qualified workers to relocate, while 30 percent of workers said they'd be up for a move to "make a fresh start."

According to the source, moving for a better pay has become the norm over the past few years, with many opting to move out of the country entirely.

"One of the key trends we saw coming out of the recession is the movement of labor in and out of markets across the U.S.," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. "Workers have had to expand their job search geographically and employers in need of hard-to-find, skilled talent have had to recruit across state lines."

It can be hard to move from one city to another let alone to a new country. Those willing to make the sacrifice in pursuit of a better life will need to consider finding a new place to live once there, as well as worry about selling their current home and getting certain affairs in order. Finding portable storage containers to keep furniture while in transition shouldn't be hard. Those moving should look for a facility with security features like surveillance cameras and gates to reduce anxiety.
