Relocation Tips for Your Coast to Coast Move

Long before Microsoft held the tech fort in Washington, Boeing touched down. Rooted in tech, the Pacific Northwest has seen its share of hubs and does in fact boast the most jobs of the industry.  From the Big Apple to Apple’s HQ in California and Amazon’s orange smile in Washington State, the digital gold rush remains planted in the West. Not to be outdone, Google’s HQ and Microsoft square off as well in the Pacific Northwest. And like the Wild West, it’s a culture all its own. There’s no shortage of jobs, though Seattle, WA – desperately seeking experienced talent - and Portland, OR – work from home (WFH) opportunities - ply their workers in wildly different ways. Here are a few trends to consider as you debate if you should stay or go: Three Reasons to Make the LeapMake a Local Connection - The Silicon Forest, a play on California’s Silicon Valley, can be a bit intimidating to those outside the tech arena. But with a robust community of like-minded locals, groups, and events, it’s easy to find your tribe. Not interested in group functions? Not to worry. Portland boasts an abundance of remote worker opportunities to suit any personality.Get Your Resume Tech-Ready – With the rise of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), be sure your resume is laser-focused for a smooth transition. Even if you’re moving with a job already in hand, it doesn’t hurt to keep your credentials sharp. If you’re moving with family, helping them get their resume ready can ease their transition and job search as well. A Move to the PacNW Can Mean Lower Relocation Costs – Why? No sales tax. Well, not in Portland. On the flip side, Seattle doesn’t have income state tax. Either way, your check’s just a little bit bigger in the NW.Need more reasons to choose to move to the Emerald City of Seattle or the Silicon Forest of Oregon? Check it out here. TIME TO PUT A PLAN TOGETHER So, you've negotiated a relocation package, but you can't just pack up without a plan. What should be the number one item on your to-do list for your big move? Create a Budget – Moving costs can add up quickly. Whether you’ve been offered relocation assistance or not, it’s a good idea to have a budget so you know what to expect and can plan for any contingencies and unforeseen issues during your move. Include everything involved in a move, including packing boxes within your budget. Other things to consider?MoversGasLodging and Meals (along the way)o Grocery bills. Don’t forget,  you’ll also need lightbulbs, paper towels, batteries…all those little things which aren’t on your mind until you need them. Before You Can Stock Your Place, You Need to Find One – Finding Temporary or Rental Housing - While many companies offer temp housing until you can find more permanent placement, not everyone has that luxury. But, if the offer is made, take it. On the flip side, it can be difficult to find housing in an area you’re not familiar with, and can add to big move worries. However, there have been a few companies which have come online in the last few years to help with the housing search. One option, though, if you’re pressed for time is an AirBnB stay as many of them offer a discount for lengthier stays usually with a minimum of a month or more. Homeaway.com is another temporary rental option as is Sublet.com. Make All the Necessary Appointments as Soon as Possible - Try to organize your appointments and expected arrivals of furniture and such to happen on the same day or within a few consecutive days. This way, you can make your new boss aware of possible absences. They and their inbox will thank you.Start Building Your Network – Whether you’re looking to eventually by house, want to get setup in a new rental which offers a bit more permanence, or just want to know where the best restaurants are, and get settled into your new city, start building your network. Plenty of businesses offer get togethers at work, but consider building a network outside of your work life – go to meetups, attend local events, volunteer. Get in the habit of saying yes to new opportunities and activities. Making the effort can go a long way in enriching your new experience and helps to bring you more fully into experience your newfound digs. There is so much which goes into a move, whether its state-to-state, city-to-city, across the country, or around the world. But having a plan, making connections, and communicating openly with your new boss can help take some of the stress off moving. And whether you’ve negotiated a relocation package or are coordinating it on your own, there are plenty of ways to keep your eye on the prize and relax once you get to the other side and settled into your new job. Our brick-and-mortar locations are in San Francisco, New York, Berlin, and London, but we have clients around the world.

The Culture Rush of Working in the Pacific Northwest

When you think of the Pacific Northwest, images of Pike’s Place at Seattle’s Waterfront and Starbucks’ birthplace may come immediately to mind. Or shoot down the I-5 Corridor toward the Silicon Forest, Oregon’s tech hub nod and nickname, a play on Silicon Valley just a little further South down the I-5 to San Francisco. One thing which may stand out immediately on the drive is the ocean vista view. Relax and unwind with a good cup of coffee at a local shop, bask in the mild climate, and curl up with a good book when you get a bit of free time. Here, the mantra is to ‘work hard, play harder’. The Land of Tech Seattle, also known as Emerald City, is one of the largest tech hubs of the eight in the US seeking top tech talent. Available jobs are outpacing the skilled workers to fill them. While they could outsource to other countries, many businesses are choosing to offer remote work options. Commuting Like a Local For most people, commuting involves keeping your car gassed up and maintained whether your office is a few miles down the road or in the next town. But, in the Pacific Northwest, commuting is part of an active lifestyle, while at the same time lowering your carbon footprint. How?  Well, with plenty of walking, hiking, and biking trails as well as a robust public transportation system, it’s a breeze to get to work. And you’ll be helping to support a sustainable environment as well. Biking is the most popular commuting option. If you’re a biker or plan to become one, be sure your outfitted with good reflective gear, a waterproof windbreaker, and of course, a helmet. If you’re going sans car, don’t forget a waterproof back. After all, you’ll need something to carry your stuff in, right?  Work/Life Balance Whether it's because of the temperate climate, the mild winters, or the laid-back atmosphere, the work/life balance in Washington and Oregon offer a peaceful setting to refresh and recharge. Available communities to spend time with like-minded people and the abundance of tech-focused jobs available in the area offer an amazing work/life balance. Spending Time in Nature – plenty of islands, parks, and trails offer a chance to commune with nature whether your commuting to and from work or planning for the weekend. The Arts - Portland and Seattle are both known for their arts and culture scenes including art festivals, indie bands, symphonies, museums, and more besides.Activities – From hiking to surfing to mountain climbing to yoga, there’s an activity for everyone to enjoy, meet people, and make friends.  One Final Takeaway… The quirky culture of the Pacific Northwest is an exercise in the unexpected. Whether listening to local bands, dressing up in costume at random, taking advantage of sunbreaks when the clouds part, or hiking in the rain, the reward is a good meal with good friends. If you’re new to the area, don’t be shy. Invite yourself along. Our brick-and-mortar locations are in San Francisco, New York, Berlin, and London, but we have clients around the world. Whether you’re looking for a permanent or a contract role, we’ve got you covered. Check out our current vacancies for opportunities or get in touch to learn more.
