Moving to a new city can be a scary experience, especially if it’s your first time living on your own. However, not every part of moving to a new city has to be intimidating. If you can secure a job in your career field as a financial analyst, you’ll be one step closer to being established in your new home. Read some helpful tips to help you in your job search when you’ve just moved to a new area and aren’t sure where you should start.

Update Your Online Profile

If you have an online profile with professional sites, make sure you update your geographic location to your new city. This helps you to show up in the search results for recruiters who are looking for people who are financial analysts in your new hometown. It’s also a great way to network with other professionals in your area to see if they work at places you may be interested in applying, which is especially helpful if you don’t know what companies are nearby.

Get Alerts

You can discover which companies are actively hiring Financial Analysts by city and industry by signing up for job alerts that are targeted to your geographic location. This will ensure you don’t overlook any job postings and bring related jobs right to your inbox as soon as they’re posted. The sooner you can get the alert sent to your inbox, the sooner you can apply and get a foot in the door or an interview.

Be Available

One way to prove that you’re interested in a job is to make yourself available for interviews. If you have no availability when a company or recruiter calls you, it may make you seem difficult to work with and they’ll move on. In a world where there are many qualified job candidates, companies don’t have to waste time on one applicant so it would be smart to have open availability or flexibility for interviews.

Network

One of the most tried and true ways to secure a job in a new city is to network as much as possible. Look for networking events for professionals in your area and plan to attend as many as you can. This puts you out there in the professional realm and on the radar for companies who may be hiring financial analysts. Attending networking events can also help you by giving you some insight into which companies are worth applying to and which ones you want to stay away from.

Be Patient

Getting a job isn’t always something that happens overnight. Often, there are multiple interviews to go through and companies have to meet internally to discuss candidates to determine who would be best for a role. Then, you may have to go through background and reference checks before you can get started. In reality, the process from your first interview to receiving an offer letter can take months, so you may need to be patient and understand the process. You may want to consider getting a temp job to help you pay the bills until something permanent comes along.

If you can practice patience, build a network of professionals and know where to look, you should be able to secure a financial analyst job. While you’re looking for a job, try to use this time to enjoy your new city and explore everything it has to offer.
