Like Ken's one thread stated "not directly related to Senior employment, but to employment in general". Has anyone here ever had to take a job transfer to another city/state to avoid being unemployed? And, if you'd never visited the city/state the transfer was to, how did it work out? IOW, there are those that will take a job transfer and then, later, find out that they don't really like the city they were transferred to. We had a neighbor, at our last apartment complex in Jacksonville, FL, that took a transfer from Portland, Oregon to Jacksonville. It was either take the transfer or lose her job. After a number of months, my wife and I asked her how things were going. She said "if it weren't for the transfer, I would've never moved/lived here. All of my family is in Portland, but I wanted to keep my job, so........." I would think there are those that lived in So California, in a "no snow/winter" area, that took a transfer to Denver (that has a winter/snow) and wished they'd just stayed in So California. Thoughts?
