December 27, 2012, 7:11 AM — Scott Bond, an IT director who's currently consulting while in transition, is staying put. When he's been offered job opportunities that required relocation in the past, Bond's answer has always been a polite, "No, thank you."
That's how Bond has dealt with the age-old question of whether IT managers should relocate for new jobs. Some see relocation as essential to an IT executive's career path; Bond doesn't.
When asked if his family would consider moving, Bond jokes, "My wife and I have four generations represented within the Philadelphia area, and, no, they would not relocate with us. They all have careers, too!"
