A family of three from Vermont with family in Denver, Leadville and Grand Junction areas, thinking of relocating but wondering where! Our son is 8 years old and lives to play hockey, so a strong youth hockey program is a must. My husband is a certified propane tech and I have my Associates in Interactive Media and Web Design plus I've run Offices for years.

Ideas?

Denver metro area, with 3M+ people, is the big dog for jobs, sports, etc.

Lots of good school districts in the metro area.

Use your relatives address in Denver on your resumes to appear local.

This strategy can back fire too though. They assume you are local and call up and say oh, can you come in for an interview tomorrow, etc..

If they know you aren't local and are still interested they will pay for your flight out here.

You can do both - give current address and local address with explanation of plans to relocate. Gives impression serious about relocation and plan to do so, but not there yet.

I recommend looking at Castle Rock, it is a great town and very close and easy to commute into Denver I lived there for a while and loved it. There are a lot of great neighborhoods, most everything you need is right there, and it is a very beautiful part of the area. Douglas County schools are good , and compared to a lot of areas, the crime is not very high. I felt very safe there. You can also drive into the mountains fairly easy from there also. There is also an area of Douglas called Highlands Ranch that is very family oriented and has everything you would need, it is further north , closer to Denver than Castle Rock. Never lived in Highlands, but was in the area a lot. Good Luck

LOL. An employer paying for your flight. I think you just got out of a time capsule from several years ago or choked on a silver spoon.

Employer better darn well pay for the flight. I wouldn't go on any out-of-town job interview if they didn't.

I will pay for your flight if you promise to work for free for 2 years probation to see if you are actually worth it.

The great thing about an attitude like that is I would instantly know I didn't want to work for your company.
