Moving to a new city can be extremely stressful and hectic. Moving to a new city without work already lined up is exponentially more stressful. Anyone who has been unemployed for a stretch of time knows how rough it is, but generally you can rely on contacts to help scope out more work. When you lack contacts in a new area the challenge has an extra layer of complexity.
One site is attempting to change this, however. Workhoppers.com is looking to make it easier for those looking for work to connect with companies offering work in a slew of different cities. The site directly caters to freelancers who find themselves in different cities on a regular basis. Even if you’re already heading somewhere to complete a project this may provide the option of picking up an extra contract or two on the side to help supplement it. Next time you find yourself abroad give it a shot!
