What companies will relocate apparel designers or technical designers in to nyc?
It’s my experience that it depends on what you do. The scarcer the talent is for a particular position, the more likely NY companies will pay to relocate. For example, a C-Suite executive is more likely to get paid relocation to NYC than an Assistant Designer. Similarly, a Tech Design Manager who focuses on full-fashioned sweaters is more likely to get a relocation package than a Tech Designer who works with cut and sew knits or wovens.
great feedback- agreed! Generally speaking I’ve found very few companies are willing to re-locate you to NYC unless you’re already a star. Eventually I just took it upon myself to move there to get the work experience I needed to move my career forward.
I think this is fairly common- if you get a job in a more unusual fashion place, they will offer relo, but I’ve never found a big city that offered it before. (for instance, Abercrombie in Ohio or Lands End in WI)
It’s unfortunate and frustrating I know
Seems like California and just in general west coast pays relo
