What's the Best Way to Say I'll Relocate at My Own Expense?
by Jaclyn Upleger
I'm a recent college grad and want potential employers to know I will relocate for a job--and will do it at my own expense. I am willing to move anywhere to get an entry level job in Human Resources--so how do I make sure that people look at my resume and give me a chance?
Should I take off my current address, so people reviewing my resume don't assume that I'm not a candidate since I'm not in the area? Should I put something in my cover letter? ... what's the best way to handle that on a resume? ANSWER:
Hi Jaclyn, The place to deal with this issue is in the cover letter and be very clear about it. Say what you said here, that you're willing to go where the jobs are... at your own expense. You don't need to make any changes in your resume, and definitely DO want to list your current address and oontact info.
To your success,
