FACT: Unless you in industry that is short of experienced workers, there is no reason for any employer to even take the time to consider an out of stater when the unemployment rate is 9% to 10% and double that or higher if you consider underemployed.

They can visit with and interview the local person, but the out of stater is not available to do this with.

And with a high unemployment rate, it is not really fair to the locals to even be looking for out of area people if there is a supply of workers for the type of joy you have available. That is not good for the company image, and employee moral.

There are jobs that I have *precisely* the skills they are looking for, I highlight those in my resume (not literally highlight them, but you know), and I still get rejection letters saying I do not match the skills and qualifications that they are looking for. I honestly wonder if it's because I am not a southern UT native...

I have found that craigslist here does have many legitimate jobs on it, you just have to check it all. the. time.

Anyway, good luck to anyone out there looking for a job.
RSFMomma my husband and I live in Salt Lake City and have been hoping to move to St.George for some time now but my husband hasnt been able to find a job. He also works in the telecommunications industry and has for 12 years. If you dont mind me asking where was your husband able to find a job?
