(MarketWatch) — College grads may find themselves with a slew of career-related questions: Does it make sense to follow an employed significant other to a new city if you don’t have a job? How do you negotiate pay? Is it OK to take an unpaid internship? To shed some light on these questions, I asked several career experts for their advice for soon-to-be college grads. Should you follow a boyfriend/girlfriend to a new city if you don’t have a job? “Love is a beautiful thing. However, being kicked out on the street with no money and no friends is not,” said Jason Levin, district manager for career site Vault.com. “Moving to a new city has a great deal of risk, especially if you are doing that just to be with one person.” Before making a move, figure out how the bills will get paid, Levin said. “You really have to have the ‘money talk’ on who pays for what until you find a job,” Levin said. “You would hope that your girlfriend/boyfriend would be patient until you find a job. Make sure you have money on the side as well as a clear exit plan, in case things go south.”
