It's easy to check out a new location before you move.
The Internet is a gold mine for anyone who's relocating. Not only can you job-search nationwide from your own living room, but you can also investigate different locations, see photographs, find out about facilities in the region, and locate good maps. Some sites that are particularly helpful include:
