Moving for your job is far from uncommon here in the United States. After all, our ideal jobs might not be located near our place of origin at all, and it would certainly be a shame to always limit ourselves to jobs that were directly nearby, thereby closing the door to other potentially wonderful opportunities. Moving for a job is particularly common among young people, recent college graduates who are just getting their start not only in the working world, but in life as a whole.
Fortunately for many, job opportunities are currently vast, with unemployment rates on a consistent path of decline. In fact, the data that has been gathered on the subject more than backs up this claim, showing that national unemployment rates had already fallen to a mere 3.7% by the time that we had reached the September of this year, of 2018. This is quite impressive and it means that career growth and achievement is likely more possible than ever before for people of all ages and backgrounds.
This statement holds particularly true of the corporate world, which is seeing growth on a quite consistent basis here in the United States. And with more corporate employees, it’s likely that many of these employees will actually need help moving from one part of the country (or even from outside the country) to the place where this corporation in question is based. For such people, finding a house or an apartment in a short period of time can be a difficult thing and staying in a hotel is far from ideal.
After all, hotels are expensive and it is unlikely that either the soon to be employee or the corporation itself has enough money to fund an extended stay at a hotel of decent quality. After all, it has been found that the average hotel costs more than $120 on a daily basis, which can be okay for just a few days or even a week or two but is not a sustainable place for the vast majority of people to stay. Fortunately, corporate housing and short term apartments are becoming more accessible as temporary housing solutions for employees or soon to be employees that are in the process of relocating for the job in question.
And corporate housing is becoming more highly utilized than ever before, with nearly half of all people using this corporate housing directly because they are in the one of the stages of relocating. Corporate housing options, therefore, have been consistently on the rise, growing each and every year since the year of 2012. And corporate housing is likely the ideal option for many people, as corporate housing tends to come in all shapes and sizes.
For instance, corporate housing could include a one bedroom apartment. It might also incorporate a short term furnished apartment, making the moving process even easier as the mover in question won’t need to move their furniture between so many different apartments all throughout the country. And corporate housing is ideal because, while short term, it tends to allow for longer term stays than any given hotel or motel. In fact, the average stay in any type of corporate housing is likely to exceed 80 days, though not by all that much.
For many people who are moving, there are simply so many things to think about that the process of it all can be very overwhelming. This is something that is likely combined by having to start a new job as well. Finding an affordable place that meets all of your criteria for moving can seem an impossible thing to do with the amount of time that has been given in which to move.
The availability of corporate housing can make a stressful move (as most moves are) just a little bit less stressful, providing the reassurance that an affordable place to stay while searching for a more long term home is more than possible for the average person who is in the process of relocating. And while a move is really likely to be stressful no matter what, having at least this reassurance can certainly help.
