When there is an opportunity to relocate due to a job or a promotion, if the money is right, most people are tempted to take the offer right away. However, there could be other things that are just as important in your life for you to think twice.
- Think About the Future – What are you trying to achieve in the new job? Is there really no room for advancement at your current job? How secure will your new job be?
