Hi everyone! I am planning on moving back to the East Coast and I have a few questions about how to go about landing a job from here in Seattle to the East Coast. I have a good job in the administrative healthcare. Are employers going to worry about that I might want them to pay moving expenses or flying out to interview expenses, which I don't expect them to pay for any expenses. Is it difficult to get an interview or job when you live across the country? Thank you in advance for your replies.

A potential employer would check where you are from as your resume and application state your current address.

If they are interested in you, they'd contact you regardless. Some may offer moving expenses, some may not.

It will be difficult. I moved from Seattle to NYC last fall. I was at director level at my job in Seattle. No bites on my resume/applications until I had a local address. And where do you mean by "East Coast"? Here in NYC there is fierce competition for even receptionist jobs. Administrative assistant positions are asking for grads "from top tier schools with stellar academic records". Check the job postings in your target area and see what's out there. The problem with the big East Coast cities right now is they are saturated with new (local) grads that will work for less money than you. Good luck!

Thank you guys for your replies.....I am a state employee in healthcare I deal with solid organ donor transplants and chemotherapy, not planning on moving back yet until a couple years. I am just curious and want to get some feedback from people who were in my shoes....I am looking into Philly, New Jersey or New York.
