My husband recently got a new job that he really wanted, but the office is in a different city (more than several hours of travel from where we live now), so he has to relocate. I'm going to start looking for a new job in that city soon, because I don't want to see my husband only on weekends.
I'm sure I'll be asked why do I want to quit my current job.
Would it be okay to just honestly answer that I like my job, but I have to relocate because of my husband's new job? Or should I say something generic like "I'm looking for new opportunities" instead?
I asked my friends for an advice, and some of them said that potential employers might think that I value family way more than my career. Also, a lot of couples live in different cities because of work, so my reason might not look valid.
Would it make me look bad if I say that I'm looking for a new job because I need to relocate? If so, what would be better to say instead?
