I think you could use your FI’s address. If you get called for an interview, i’d clarify the situation, but there’s no reason to knock yourself out of the running if you don’t need to!

Some companies will fly you in. It depends on the level you are at/the field. We fly people in for interviews where I work (i’m a scientist at a pharma company).

Since the worst thing that could happen is nobody hires you and you’d have to wait anyway, i’d go ahead and apply. It may work out for the best!

I’ve been flown in for interveiws out of state before.  So I agree with the PP that you should go ahead an apply.  I’d put your current address on your resume but just indicate on your cover letter that you are willing to relocate.  That’s what I’ve always done and I’ve gotten out of state jobs twice (and an out of state internship in college).

I would apply! I have a job starting July 1 out of state that I got with a Skype interview (another one flew me out for an interview). My Fiance has started to apply for jobs as well and we’re still living on the opposite side of the country. Just put in your cover letter that you are moving to the area at the end of June.

Put your FIs address on your resume and be sure to post it online.  It depends on your field, but when my husband had to move with me, the minute he had a local address and had his resume posted online, he started getting contacted by headhunters.  He never interviewed in person, but was hired over the phone within a week.

Start applying NOW.

Hiring usually takes many different steps these days. I applied for an entry-level, seasonal position almost a month ago. I’ve had two interviews and I’ll likely be waiting for another week or two while my background check processes before I’m informed of a decision. All this for a limited-term job!

You could very well apply in April and not start until after you have moved.
