Advice For Getting Settled
When I was offered a new job in Tampa, Florida, and I actually had to move to Florida I had to make the difficult decision of whether to take it or not. It would mean leaving behind my hometown and all of my friends and family. But in the end, I decided that it was worth it for me because this is an amazing opportunity for me professionally. Here are some tips on how you can transition into life in Florida!
The first thing you have to do when transitioning is finding an apartment. There are so many different choices in apartments in Florida, so you want to make sure that it’s the right one for you! You can start by looking at reviews of local complexes on Google Maps or Yelp. Next, visit a couple of places and take notes on what type of flooring they use, how well maintained the property is and whether there seems like good security. After narrowing down your options based on those factors, look up their prices online to see which ones fit within your budget – but don’t forget about utilities!
The next thing I would suggest doing before moving into your new place is getting cable set up because it will be hard without internet service once you’re moved out here. Also, get a phone plan and make sure you get all of your service turned on before moving because it’s hard to get new service in the middle of a move.
You should also look up what type of entertainment is available around town. If there are any theme park passes that you want to buy for yourself or your family members, now would be the time! You can also start thinking about joining local groups or clubs so that you’ll have something to do during those first few months when everything still feels like an adjustment period.
One thing I’m worried about as far as adjusting goes is finding healthcare providers who accept my insurance here – luckily there are websites where you can search by specific insurance types which will help narrow down possible doctors!
