How often does a 3D modeler/rigger/animator move areas?


Hi, I’m currently interested in the 3D industry and I know very little about it, or the lifestyle of the average worker. A main question of mine that I cant seem to find any answers to would be “How often does someone in this business move?”. I currently live in North Carolina and I’ve noticed that some people move from state to state for different projects they’re hired for, for short amounts of time and then moving on to the next once the project is completed. Is something like this necessary for one to be successful in this industry?
