Im 18 years old and Im trying to relocate somewhere in Knox County. Before I can even consider moving out of California, I obviously need a job lined up to survive. How would I go about finding a job in Tennessee without living there?

You could start by using online job searches like monster.com. Look at employment adds in the knox co. paper.

Thanks for the idea 2mares. Are employers usually hesitant to hire employees from another state? I read that once, but I dont know if its actually true.

Well, Its has been my experience that people work at jobs out of state every single day.
I assume you are just out of hs with no real job experience so your options will be limited, but as long as you can meet their requirments I dont see a problem.
You will really need to save up some money for relocation expenses before you make such a big move. Often employers will hold your pay a week behind.

Why have you decided to move so far away with not family or friends here and no job. I would have been scared to death to make that kind of move at your age.

Here when I'm at more employers are laying off then hiring

Also remember that when you move you usually have to pay the deposit and first and last months rent......(last time I moved it was $1500 just for a house).

Then you have pay the deposit for you lights,water,gas and phone.

It usually cost you a couple grand to move locally so to move half way across the country would cost a fortune.

Honestly,I'd stay there in California and earn some sort of degree before moving anywhere.....(Tn college tuitions are going up for in-state students so for an out of stater it'll be difficult to do it here).
