Career Advice - Finding a Job in a Different State


There comes a time that after you have been on your job search for far too long without even a nibble that you may have to come to the decision that you may have to sever ties with where you are living and move to another state to start fresh. Of course the idea of moving to another state in itself is overwhelming, you may discover that it's your only choice. So to make this type of transition easier, below you will find a few guidelines to help you get started.

Before making that huge leap of moving and starting over you need to sit down and make a list of what your goals are. There needs to be at least three things included on this list. One would be the perfect job you are looking for, the kind of job you think you will more than likely get and thirdly, what might be your worst case scenario. Make sure to write all of these down and keep this list with you to refer back to.

If you already know where you are thinking of moving to, you need to take time to research the different job opportunities there might be in that area. There will be big differences in different areas and you need to find jobs that your qualifications match. If you look for what might be available for you make any type of move, you are going to alleviate some of the stress involved with moving and finding a new job.

Before moving, if you've not already done this, you need to write a all purpose type of cover letter, your resume and make sure you have a list of references that you know will be able to be contacted. Make sure that you have a glowing resume, one that will make you stand out amongst the crowd.

If you find it difficult to write about yourself and your skills, there are plenty of websites that you can use to help you create the perfect resume suited for your particular skills. Once you have your cover letter and resume written you really should ask a person you know to go over it and be honest with you. However; don't ask a family member, they will more than likely not be as honest with you.

If you know people in the state that you are thinking about moving to, it never hurts to ask them for any kind of assistance that they might be able to give you. Even though a lot of us want to believe it's what you know and not who you know that gets you a job, the unfortunate truth is a lot of times it really is who you know and not what you know that gets us that foot in the door.

There is a website called indeed.com that you can get daily leads for employment that will focus on the area that you are moving to and this could be a good way to get some ideas of where you might be able to apply for work. This will help cut down on some of the time you will have to be spending on your job search.

Make sure to keep records of all of the places that you have applied for and then making notations on the jobs in which employers replied, didn't reply and whatever other information you feel is important. This will help you figure out what seems to be working and what is not working at all.
