Agreed. My post that you quote above was in response to Bobsell, who implied that employers should hire out of state applicants because they need the job, because they need money, housing, etc.

It is not that I donít care if employees are properly compensated, and I do have a few established relationships with decent rental landlords that I give out to relocating new hires to ease out of area transitions. My post was limited to stating that a person's personal financial circumstances are not part of my hiring decision. My decision is based on quality of applicant, tempered with an understanding that out of state applicants are slightly more risky. It is simply one more factor in evaluating the overall desirability of a candidate.

How do you get a job in another state?
Apply
Many employers refuse to consider non local candidates.
Bull****. Plenty will. See first comment.
It is unlikely to have personal connections with people in other states who could get you passed the HR screening, directly to the manager. Personal networking is normally local. See first comment.
Are we imprisoned in our current state, so we cannot move to the other side of the country?See first comment.

Plenty of places will hire out of state candidates. You just have to search far and wide since some places have an inbred mentality.

I am returning back to this thread in hopes of having this one question answered. Is it any more difficult in the public sector?

Sorry, but no definitive answer is possible.

It will depend on the job, the agency, any applicable regulations, the local talent pool, the organizational budget, the whim of the hiring manager and the area of the country.

As with all things, the more rarified and desirable your skills compared to the local population, the more likely it is that you will be hired from outside the area.
