We have been planning a move to Denver area since last Fall. My husband has had some phone interviews and recently spent a 2 month process with a company in the DTC including them flying him out there. However he didn't get the job to our surprise. We are very frustrated because the timing is good with it being the summer and the kids out of school. Our house is for sale here in NC, we picked out a moving company and an apartment complex in the Parker area to lease for a few months while looking for a home.
So the last & main piece of the puzzle is getting the job there. Any suggestions on how to make this happen quicker?
He is currently a Transportation Finance Manager but his last job which he had for many years was Director of Credit & Collections- basically he's always been in the finance/accounts receivable department.
If anyone knows of any good networking tips they would be appreciated. It's hard to network across the country. He utilizes LinkedIn very much and we use all the job boards to look for jobs.
Any help would be much appreciated!!!

From my experience...you will not receive employment until you are physically in the state. Colorado is a magnet state-which means a lot of people are moving here!
I am a native and lived in Florida..I couldn't get past the phone interview even though I own a house here and stated this in my cover letter.
I sucked it up and moved without a job in September 2013..I had 6 months of living expenses saved. Found a job in 4 months-found a better job 3 months later.
It's tough and I hope he finds something before moving out here...but I notice a lot of employers state "local candidates only."

Good luck.

I have heard that before. However he just went thru a 2 month process with Dish Network and they didn't seem concerned he was out of state. They even offered some relocation assistance. They even flew him to Denver for an interview. But in the end they went with someone else who was a better fit.
He will keep networking & applying for jobs - we just really liked the DTC area for him to work. But at this point- we will take any area!!
