Take a closer look at location for more opportunities
Expanding your location search can open the door to new opportunities for those on the job hunt. For example, exploring less competitive communities surrounding your target area may generate more favorable job opportunities. Communities with a lower cost of living or no state taxes can give more flexibility when it comes to salary requirements. Depending on location and access to public transportation, you can also consider searching areas that are commutable to or from your ideal living place – some practices may offer a commute allowance.
Looking at an organization’s full benefit package versus basic compensation is also another great way to broaden your search. You may find that certain benefit offerings hold greater value and may outweigh a higher salary with less benefits.
