How do I relocate??Locked
I’m in a little bit of a dilemma and need some suggestions.. I’m currently planning on relocating from Florida to Media, Pennsylvania for my bachelor’s degree. The problem I’m running into is this: How exactly do I go about securing employment where I plan to move? I mean.. I have roughly 3 years experience in IT, with support, network administration, web development with Classic ASP and ASP.NET, some programming (C#/VB.NET) and some database work (jack of all trades, you could say). I have an A+ and an MCP at the moment.
How do I spice up my cover letter when I apply to jobs in PA so they look at it, when I’m not living there at the time and probably won’t be able to move until the end of the year or beginning of 2007 (I need to have at least enough money saved to live for a month in the event I can’t find employment)? It just seems to me like I’m shooting in the dark because what company will look at someone who isn’t even living there at the time? I can’t go for in-person interviews there; and I don’t have enough experience yet to get relocation or to be flown in for an interview (not that most companies offer that anymore). So.. what do I do? Do I wait until I could theoretically pack up and move before I apply? Or do I apply and explain (how?) that I’m going to be moving there? I’m new to this aspect of the jobhunt, and in dire need of some advice.
