I'm an American overseas for many years looking to return, and not to my home state.
I wish to live in one of three different states, in specific cities, in the case of two based on where I want to live which I believe have strong economies.
Despite replying to job notifications which are very good fits mailed to me by a variety of job sites, applying online to active roles on company sites, cold-Linking (new term here) to recruiters on LinkedIn in those cities, etc. I have yet to get interviews.
I totally get the importance of face-to-face, and it benefits both sides.
The best alternatives I can come up with are:
a) taking the risk of moving to a place I've never lived, being out of work until I find something there.
b) moving back to my home state, getting something there first, then move to where I want (a multi-year plan which might not work for the same reasons as from here to there).
Plus I'd probably have to get a car first.
So realistically, can one make this happen remotely? For the recruiters reading this, am I the type of candidate you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole?
Hopefully this is a useful thread for not only myself but others, and apologies up front if there is a thread on this already.
