Some job candidates cannot relocate because they have a hard time selling their houses

October 16th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Each year several large employers in Seattle extend offers to hundreds of out-of-town job candidates. Those firms offer very attractive relocation packages to lure these candidates to move to the emerald city.

Lately, the economy is tanking, layoffs are mounting, and it should become easier for companies to hire. However, it hasn’t been the case. Apparently, some out-of-town candidates have received job offers and wanted to relocate, but they couldn’t sell their houses.

Do you know someone who is in this situation? Please add a comment or email me ( I’d like to write a follow-up post to offer some practical advice on this issue.

    As a technical recruiter the “relo factor” is one of the most challenging aspects of my job.
