Do you just say Yes or do you your time to prepare a "plan"? It is evident that you need to evaluate all your options before relocating. In a way, you should make a cost/benefit analysis before replying to any offers.

- Do you want to relocate to that country/city?
- Can your partner find a job in that country/city?
- Is there a school for your kids in that country/city?
