While job searching is a full-time job and often very stressful, some candidates make it even more challenging by deciding to look for work in a new location. This brings additional challenges.
If you are not physically in the new location while you are searching, consider identifying a local address you can use for your search so you don’t jump out as an out of state candidate. Use a friend’s address with their permission or rent a post office box.
Research your options in advance so you know how to make last minute plans should you receive an invitation to interview in person.
You make your initial impression on paper. The goal of that is to gain an opportunity for you to sell yourself in person – the interview.
