Will those opportunities be available in the locations you're considering? Are you interested in being close to family? If so, make sure you include those areas in your preferences, and determine how far you'd be willing to drive for a visit. Recruiters love when a candidate has roots in their area, and it may give you a leg up. Consider, too, the opportunities available for your spouse or partner and children. Once you have some places ident i f ie d , m a ke th os e you r geographic preferences. The next step is to visit those locations, ideally through the interview process. When you get there, make sure you try and take some time to explore the area, not just the employer. You may find that you were wrong and those are not places you want to live. That's fine — and better to find out before a contract is signed. Remove the location from your preferences and take it as a lesson learned. Picking a location is as important as picking a practice. Employers know this and are going to be a lot more interested in candidates who have done their homework and know exactly where they want to live.
