Before accepting a job that requires relocating, an executive should consider a few important questions, says A.J. Christopher Wood.

Wood, executive director of the Richmond Economic Council, says the questions would include:-What's the place you're planning to move to like? Is it urban, suburban or somewhere in-between?

-Is it considered a growth area?

-Is there a lot of construction going on? Is it industrial or residential construction?

-What's the current economic and employee situation?

-Are the taxes high?

-How is the school system rated? How are the local colleges and universities rated?
