I apply online. Usually 2 phone interviews (one phone screen with HR, then one technical with the hiring manager) then a final round in person.

I often see the same states that are trying to hire people from other states because they lack the talent and depths of human resource in those states. Getting a job in another state is not hard, the problem is I refuse to get paid much less in other states than my home state. Why should I perform high level work in a low cost state while the difficulty and experience required is the same. Expenses in others states maybe lower than my state but it is not 50% lower so I do not want a 50% reduction in wage. A lot of employers tend to think by relocating to a cheaper state it should translate to a 50% reduction in wages.

I've done it 3x

First move was my "fresh out of college" job and the company I interned with hired me on full time across the country.
Second move was with the same company, I transferred my job. This is definitely the easiest way to go about it.
Third move, I had to find a job on my own. What I did to help me was put on my resume that I was relocating to the area at a specific time (like "relocating to XXXX in July 2019") and I added it into my cover letter as well that I was planning to move. The key is to convince employers you plan to move to the area on your own, so they think you are less of a risk. If you have a personal connection to the area and they ask why you want to go there, you can bring that up too. That way you're less likely to bail on them and return to where you came from--you have a reason to be there beyond whatever job you are interviewing for.

Another thing I did was sign up for their job worker commission thing...like in Texas, where I lived before, it was the Texas Workforce Commission and I filled out a profile and they would send me job matches. I did that for the state I wanted to move to and that's actually how I ended up with the job that allowed me to move here. They listed the job on my new state's workforce job board and hired me on despite being out of state. I recommend you do that too.

Employers discriminate against out of state candidates.

So first, move to the state you want to move to.

Then put that new address on your resume.

Then apply for jobs in that state.

Doesn't matter if you don't have money.
Doesn't matter if landlords don't want to rent to you without paying several months's rent in advance.
Doesn't matter if this will cause you great hardship.

Employers are just ridiculous like that.

If you want to get a job out of the state, share your resume in the online job sites. The best online job sites are indeed and Naukri.com etc. LinkedIn and Naukri.com are also the best platforms where you can find multiple jobs. jobMinr is the online job portal site that will help you to find a job in any state in Australia.

Do you even need to put an address on your resume? Why not just leave it off and put town/city & state of where you're wanting to move to? (Ie. New York, NY // Boston, MA)


I am seeing less & less resumes with addresses on them these days, especially from the young millennial types.

Why is that ridiculous? Out of state applicants are more difficult than in-state for a number of reasons.

The candidates need for money, or housing, or anything else isnít my problem as an employer.

Why does a resume need an address?
