This reader posted in our Ask Savvy group for advice on getting a job in another city.
I've been applying for a couple months now and have clearly stated in my cover letter that I plan to relocate. I'm trying to be responsible financially and not move to the new city until I have a job lined up. As soon as I get an offer, I'm prepared to put in my two weeks notice and move right away. But how can I best convey this to hiring managers?
I've clearly stated in my cover letter that I am planning to relocate. I've already been rejected once due to the company only wanting to consider local applicants at the time.
I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do to make my résumé or cover letter stand out, or if many employers see a nonlocal address and put the application in an automatic "no" pile.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
