Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any agencies that I could use to get a job lined up before making the move, or any companies that would consider out-of-state applicants? I was born in Seattle, but moved to Hawaii when I was younger. I know the area well and I have a place to stay because I have family that still live there. I just don't wanna move and live off my family. I want to be able to have job security. I have a little over two years in customer service and three years in an office setting. I would appreciate any ideas that anyone may have. If offered a job, I could move up to Seattle within a week. I love Hawaii, but I've been here for 12 years now; it's time to go back home.

Thank you

See if any of these might be suited to your qualifications. Public Agencies are not as likely to discriminate against people from other states, but usually will not pay for any relocation or
fly you in for an interview, except for top management positions. Some, including where I work, will do phone interviews.

I'm relocating today from Hawai'i to Seattle after 4 years When I sent out my CV and applications I always would put aloha as the greeting or in the subject line so it would stand out a little. I am assuming it worked because I got 2 interviews and 2 offers in a 3 week period out of 4 applications. HR departments read apps all day so anything to catch their I is helpful in my opinion. No one was offering relocation services that I spoke to. Best of luck on the job search!

Since you have family in Seattle, put their address on the resume.
