Typical commuting expectations
When searching for a new job, what’s important to you? Salary? Company culture? Role responsibilities? Whether you’ve considered it yet or not, when weighing up job offers, the commute you could be undertaking on a daily basis is extremely important.

But what commute is reasonable and what is not? There is a number of factors to take into account when working out the pros and cons of whether a certain commute works for you.
