At what age are you too old to relocate for a new job?

Posted 04 February 2019 - 01:24 PM

At what age would you consider somebody too old to try and relocate for a new job opportunity?

What factors would you feel influence the age at which somebody would be too old?

Are there different factors for moving to a new city?

Are there different factors for moving to a new state?

Are there different factors for moving to a new country?

I would say none unless you have kids that are close to graduation (the moving of schools might mess with their graduation and/or scholarships for college).

Why would numerical age be a factor? It isn't, of itself.

Do you mean an opportunity or a concrete job offer that includes moving expenses?

The only thing I would be hesitant on, is retirement age, but it could be covered in the interview process. Otherwise, hire whomever is qualified.

I intended concrete job, though I tried to leave the question as open as possible to garner individual opinions.

I'm too old to relocate for work, when I'm too old to care about a massive pay raise.

Mid 40s I think. Roots must have been set far in the ground by then.

What if your roots were set in your 20's, & your seeds have now moved on?
