Job Transfer Abroad Many moves are the result of accepting a job transfer within your company. Take a preview trip to your new location to gain helpful information on housing that meets your needs, schooling, shopping, health care and other accommodation and opportunities in the area. You’ll also need to consider whether you will lease or sell your current home and address school transfers, if you have children. If your job transfer is an international assignment, you’ll have a whole host of other considerations to address, such as property management, housing, intercultural training, schools, immigration and more.
