Yep – I’ve taken out of state jobs twice now (3 times if you count my internship in college).

I just stated in my cover letter and resume that I was willing to relocate and they started out the process with phone interviews instead of in-person interviews.  Other than that, it really isn’t much different than a local job.

Good luck in your search!

I’m in this process atm. I’d been applying a lot, and getting no bites, because I do think that it seems complicated to recruiters. However, as soon as I found a really great ad on a site that targets anyone and everyone…internationally, things worked better. I was luck enough to find a posting within 4,5 hours of me, and I simply wrote that I am eager to relocate to their city for the position. Within 15 minutes I was called! I am now in the town for interviews, put up in a hotel. 

I think the key is to make a targeted letter and cv everytime that states that your objective is to move to the X region, state, or city…even if you have change that line for every job! Go for it, keep it up, and be patient…someone will bite.

@NinjaWings:  I don’t think it would be too pushy…but mind you I don’t have a lot of experience in the area, I’m 25…so take my advice with a grain of salt. What I might do is resend an email, exactly the same and before, same CV and Cover letter and change the subject line to the new job offer name and number.
