I would think relocating would be one of the last things you would do in a job search because a lot of people have families and other ties to the area where they live.

I think a lot of people are relocating to where they think there are jobs, and people at the destination also moving to where they think prospects are better. The practice of hopping freight trains revived during 1982-83, and it was usually by job seekers.

You should not move unless you have a job lined up, otherwise your wasting money on travel expenses, unless your moving somewhere you have family and a place to stay.

any unemployed person who lets the media shape their way of thinking about the economy probably won't find a job.
