I'm just curious as I could find no address other than one two states away, why they would want to interview me? As I don't think it's a level that would contribute to relocation so I'm just curious what to say if it comes up as to my desire to move there? I know one of the rules is don't ask about telecommuting or anything but I think that's the only way it could work out.

So I guess the question is, if you are looking to hire someone out of state what amount of preparation is normally given? Or do you think they just overlooked this? I need the practice and want to say the right thing regarding. thanks

They probably figure that if you're desperate enough for a job you'd be willing to move. That being said, what kind of job is it? You might be surprised and they would be willing to pay relocation. Is the job listed as for local candidates only?

Why did you even apply then?

We need more detail about what this is. Maybe they are considering opening a branch in your area, maybe they are willing to cover relocation, maybe many other things.

So it turns out they didn't realize I was out of state and were looking local. It was over quickly. Why did I apply? I was hoping it could have worked remotely but no such luck. I will talk to anyone at this point, even if just to practice.
