Where Would You Move Your Job?
Let’s say you could move your job to any city in the world. Would you choose Hong Kong? Paris? Des Moines?
Relocation specialist Cartus Corporation recently surveyed relocation and human resource professionals on which cities they would accept a job transfer offer to.
Among areas of the world, most of these U.S.-based professionals chose the U.S. as their #1 destination, followed by Europe. New York was their top pick for a U.S. city to transfer to, followed by San Francisco, San Diego and Boston.
European countries making the list of dream job transfer destinations included Italy, France, Germany and Spain. Among all international countries, Italy tied Australia for the #1 slot.
Location definitely factored in as a criteria for accepting a job transfer, but it was not the biggest one. That honor went to “My spouse’s/family’s happiness while on assignment,” according to Cartus. And if your spouse isn’t too pleased with the idea of relocating to a glamorous new city or country, there are always vacations.
