Looking for your Hollywood Story in the USA? You might be moving for your dream job, your perfect partner, or simply for a change in life. But although you’re super interested in moving to the US, you’ve got one question on your mind: is it the right choice for me?
There’s a lot to unpack when answering this question but, luckily, the experts have arrived. Here, we consult the highly experienced team from The Moving Company. They’ve helped thousands of Kiwis move over to the US to start the latest chapter of their stories. Here’s what to consider:
Have you been offered a job there?
There are so many industries that are in desperate need of more workers in the US, but it pays to have a job offer first. If you’ve applied for a job and received an offer, it’s a good sign that you should consider moving to the USA. While it’s definitely possible to find a job in the US after moving there, you’ll feel a lot more secure when you have a job lined up first.
If you don’t yet have a job – don’t stress! There are lots of industries that are looking for more workers. In March 2022, there was a reported 11.5 million job openings, showing signs of a serious labour shortage in the States.
Which city are you interested in?
The US is one of the largest countries in the world, offering a huge variety of cities and a unique culture to be found within them. Basically, you can imagine your dream location and find it in America! From cultural capitals Chicago and Los Angeles, to tech business hubs like San Francisco and New York, to hip and happening cities like Austin and Nashville, you’ll find the perfect place for you when you move to the US.
On the other hand, you might be moving to get away from the hustle and bustle of a main city centre, choosing a more regional location. Whether you’re in agriculture or simply enjoy the quiet life, there’s plenty of breathing space in the US.
Moving with family?
Moving to the US with your family is awesome. House prices are, on average, lower in the US than here in New Zealand, so you’re in luck if you’re looking for the perfect family home. While New Zealand has a median home price of NZ$850,000, the USA’s median home price is far lower at US$374,900 (roughly $572,000 in New Zealand dollars).
There are thousands and thousands of top-quality schools across the country too. You’ll find great family neighbourhoods with top-rated schools wherever you are in the US.
