KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend and welcome to another Friday Finds here at KCL! I don't know about you guys, but we have actually been able to use our heater this week. I'm so excited that sweater weather is finally here! It's time to cozy up with some hot cocoa and watch my favorite scary movies. My husband and I love Halloween, and we love to relax at home with a good movie or show. Several new scary shows are streaming as of today, so we will definitely be staying in and watching Netflix. Whether you're staying in or going out, enjoy your weekend, and enjoy these incredible seasonal picks. Happy shopping!


At AfterHours Decals & More they carry gifts and home goods like candles and personalized wedding gifts, but with Halloween coming up, I really wanted to share their seasonal Autumn-themed decor with you. Among my favorites are their Halloween door decals (pictured above) and their set of witch pun Halloween stemless wine glasses.


I prefer the ready-made set, but if you're…

The Challenges of Building a Career After Relocating

Relocating can be extremely tough in a number of ways, especially when you start thinking about having to find a new job to replace your current source of income. After all, once you’ve built a routine around your existing job, it can be difficult to envision any other way of life, and going out on a limb just doesn’t seem like a wise option. Most people try to arrange a new job before moving, but that isn’t always possible, leading to the dreaded possibility of being unemployed in a new area.

Nobody wants to be jobless and without extra money to spend when they’re just trying to have fun and become acquainted with in their new location. With that said, here are a few of the major hurdles you’ll encounter when trying to build your career after relocating, as well as some measures you can take to make the process easier.

Earning New Credentials to Aid Your Job Search

After you’ve arrived in your new town and have fully accepted the reality that your old job is a thing of the past, you might get the urge to embark on an entirely different career path. Fortunately, if you’re anywhere near a major city, you should have no trouble finding local education providers that can help you elevate your resume and gain entry into a whole new field.

You can narrow down your options by using locational search terms related to the occupation you’re interested in. For example, if you just moved to Fresno and are looking for medical assistant schools, you could search for “Medical Assistant Schools Fresno CA.”

Adjusting to a Different Set of Opportunities

The old saying “when one door closes, another door opens” is definitely applicable for people who have just relocated and are in search of a new job. However, the door that opens might contain entirely different opportunities from what you’re used to, so you have to be ready and willing to adjust if necessary.

For example, if you moved from a rural area where agriculture was a major industry and you were employed in the agricultural sector, you may have to consider other options if you’ve recently relocated to an urban sector that doesn’t have a high demand for agricultural workers.

Leaving the Past Behind and Moving On

Finally, the feeling of regret is perhaps the hardest thing to move past after you’ve relocated, but it’s imperative that you live and let go for the benefit of not only your career but also your emotional well-being. Even if things didn’t work out as you had planned, take comfort in the fact that there are plenty of career opportunities out there just waiting to be seized in your new hometown.
 
The Option to Relocate Is a Major Career Perk

There are lots of jobs that let you move around and some will even pay you to travel the world. Ultimately, if you feel like you’ll want to relocate in the future, you should take that factor into consideration when you’re choosing your career path.
