Fun And Socialising

Even though you’ll be working hard, and money might be a little tight at first; don’t forget all the reasons you decided to head into the city.

Make sure you use your free time to explore; see what events, exhibitions, and nights are on in your area and turn up to enjoy them.

It can feel pretty isolating when you turn up to a new place; therefore, whether you’re a straight, bi, or gay girl looking for your new gang or companion, it’s worth making it a priority. Feeling like you’re part of a social circle will ensure that you settle in quickly, and a big city can feel like home (and not scary at all).

Invite people over, say yes to others who invite you out, and make the most of what’s on your doorstep.

Work/Life Balance

Getting a job, or on your chosen career path is something you’ll need to consider; you’ll need that steady flow of income coming in so that you can enjoy the rest of what your city has to offer you.

It’s worth using the help of reputable recruitment and placement specialists so that you can find your ideal role sooner rather than later. Once you’ve secured a job, you can begin to plan around your monthly income; this will help determine where to look for accommodation, and figure out any commuting costs as part of your budget.

Inner city accommodation doesn’t come cheap; the plus side is that all those bar and restaurants, work offices, and shops will be a walk away from your door.

However, you’ll definitely have to pay for the luxury of such convenience. Therefore, it’s worth thinking about flat or house sharing options; this is a great way to get to know some new people and an unfamiliar place from those who know the area.

You can often get short-term rental agreements if you’re sharing, which is ideal as you’re finding your feet and working out where you see yourself in the city.
