5 Expert Tips on How to Land an Out-of-State Job
We’ll be the first ones to admit that making a drastic career switch isn’t easy — especially if that switch involves crossing state lines. And while pro interview tips and Pinterest hacks to find your dream job may be helpful tools to get you started, there’s a certain je ne sais quoi required to successfully land your ideal job from across the country. We sat down with career expert Annica Russo to find out her top tips for applying for (and getting!) your dream out-of-state job.
1. Be honest.
