As much as we wish, our dream job isn’t always in our backyard. Often, scoring an awesome position will require us to take a longer commute, or sometimes, to move cities, states, or even countries. A growing number of companies recognize that in order to ease the transition for new employees, relocation assistance is necessary. This is a sum of money that employers pay to new employees to help them with expenses like moving fees, real estate agents, travel, and all of the little costs that add up when you move your life and your family to a new location. Here are 12 jobs open now that are offering relocation assistance along with a host of other benefits and perks!
