It’s tough to plan a job search from a distance but there’s quite a bit of research you can do online as part of your preparations. Start researching companies and career opportunities in your industry at your destination location. LinkedIn is a great resource and you can also check sites like Glassdoor. When applying to jobs, make sure to include a local address (you can use a friend or family member’s address) on your resume and online employment application. This is important because recruiters will often search resumes by zip code radius to the office location and may sort applications that way as well. Now that video interviewing is becoming more popular, you can probably participate in the initial interview process without having to travel – although you may need to take a trip on your own dime for final interviews if it’s before your big move.
