Back in 2010, I accepted a position with a federal agency where I can work anywhere in the country. I listed a few regions among my preferences in which to work, including NC (where I was previously located, Charlotte to be exact) and north Georgia. The first duty station I was offered was too far from Charlotte and I didn't want to move that particular town, so I declined. The second was in the north Georgia mountains, and although I wanted something closer to Atlanta in Georgia, I decided to accept because I wanted to demonstrate that I was serious about the job. So I moved to Canton upon accepting the job; thankfully I now live and work closer to the city.

I knew someone who worked at a Fortune 500 here and I asked her to pass my resume to her boss. I used her address on my resume. I got a call one week later to do an interview. Immediately booked a flight and hotel and did the interview two days later. Offered the job on the spot. Started two weeks later.
