Refining Relocation – Part 7: The Family (continued)

If the candidate is married, get to know that spouse. Is the spouse employed, what do they do, what is their income and will they continue to work in a similar capacity in the new city are all questions that must be answered early on in the recruiting process. Of course children need to be considered, and we can assist in putting together a standard “why your city” packet that can be given to every prospective hire. Include information on what makes your town or city great; expand on things such as blue ribbon school systems, city-wide annual events and celebrations, fun attractions to see, must-visit restaurants, or cultural exhibits. This is information that can easily be pulled from your state and city visitor’s bureau, but with some personal details added in, it can be a valuable and professional packet that a candidate can take home with them and review.
