What is MakeMyMove?
MakeMyMove is a marketplace product that connects remote workers and other work-from-anywhere talent with communities that are attracting new residents. We help workers find the right place, and we help communities build and promote programming to attract those workers.
How much does it cost?
We’re 100% supported by communities. If you are a worker that is thinking about making a move, our service is free.
Why are communities offering incentive programs?
Empowered by newfound remote work, tens of millions of people (in the U.S. alone) are now free to move wherever they choose. This poses an opportunity for cities and towns to sell themselves, and recruit new residents. New residents mean growth, economically and culturally. Leaders are recognizing this opportunity, and assembling relocation programs that make the moves a little easier, and integrate new residents into the community.
How do I qualify for community programs?
Every program is a little different, so be sure to check individual eligibility criteria. Most programs require that you be a full time remote worker, or able to bring your full-time job and income with you when you move. Generally, you must be 18 years or older, able to lawfully work in the United States, commit to moving for a minimum amount of time, and have a minimum income. Further, most programs require that you apply, verify your personal information, and receive a formal offer in order to qualify.
How can I increase my chances of being selected?
Sell yourself! Tell the community what is drawing you to the place, or express how you want to get involved once you arrive. Add details about yourself,
How long will I need to reside in the new community?
Most programs require that you stay at least a year. But we hope you’ll love the place so much, you’ll call it home.
What is a remote worker?
Remote workers are employed full-time and typically do their jobs from a computer. They can work from their house, an office, a co-working space, coffee shop, maybe sometimes from the bleachers at their kids' swim meet. Remote workers who have moved through our programs have titles like Customer Service Agent, Software Engineer, Insurance Advisor, and more. Examples of roles that aren't considered remote include Delivery Driver, Mechanic, and Cashier.
What does “Apply Now” mean?
“Apply Now” indicates that the community is working with MakeMyMove. You can apply on our site, and our team will help you navigate the application and move process.
Are program amenities taxable?
Very likely, yes. Most cash and equivalent amenities would be considered income, subject to IRS rules. Be sure to talk to a tax professional for personal advice on how to handle it.
I’m bringing my remote job to a new community, but my spouse needs to find local work. Can MakeMyMove help?
Yes! In most participating communities, we can connect program members to local employers.
I live in the same state that is offering incentives. Do I qualify?
Probably not. Most programs require that you move from out of state.
My spouse will need a job as part of our move. Can you help?
We can often help connect spouses to local employers. Let us know what you're looking for when you apply.
