Finding work in another state

Finding work in another state

If you think the time has come to start expanding your job search, it might be a good idea to look for work in another state entirely.  Job seekers from all over the United States have been demonstrating a strong interest in moving to other states to find work and there are methods you can use to make this process easier.

Looking for a new job can be tough to begin with, as trying to find employment in a state different to the one you currently live in can be a real challenge.  If you are thinking about making a move and want to find a great job interstate, you need to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate to employers why you should be hired over local talent.

One good tip is to plan a trip to help with your job search.  If there is a particular state that you would like to move to, set up a trip there for business purposes.  Schedule information interviews with recruiters and employers and see if you can get some actual job interviews lined up by scheduling your trip around networking events.  This is an excellent way to build your reputation and connect with potential employers.

Another good way to show interest in working in a new area is online networking with local professionals.  Use LinkedIn to search for professional groups in cities where you would be likely to find a suitable job in your industry.
