Why would an empolyer want to schedule me for an interview if I live 2000 miles away?
I want to move from Michigan to Arizona. I will be sending resumes to several different employers. But my question is: If other people are sending in resumes for this job who live much closer, why would they even bother worrying about setting up an interview, worrying about the time it would take for me to make the move, etc...?
Is it just a matter of making myself truly appear the most qualified for the job? ANSWER:
Yes, Eric, I believe that it would come down to whether you truly appear to be the best candidate, or at least a super candidate, for the job. So your resume needs to really sell you. Also, in your cover letter, you're going to need to address the employer's concerns about how serious you really are about relocating.
I think it's possible to still accomplish this, but it's definitely going to be more challenging in today's job market than it might have been a few years ago.
