Has anyone successfully relocated for a job and have some tips? I am currently applying (3 yoe) but having trouble getting interest from recruiters outside my state.

You just need a compelling reason for the move, “anywhere but here” isn’t going to fly. They generally like to hear that there’s a specific reason you want to move to a specific place. People are wary of out of state moves because they’re afraid the new hire will dislike the place and (shortly) move again (specifically, back). For me, I lied 🤷‍♀️ and said that I was interested in moving to be closer to family. I did research on where the specific recruiter’s big areas are and restricted myself to 2 of them.

I definitely mentioned it during the first phone call, as like a little aside. So for example, if they ask about my feelings of the job, I’d say the usual BS (excitement, opportunities, company culture), but I’d also add something like “and I know it’s a little thing, but honestly I’m really excited about the location because it’s by my brother and I’ve been trying to be closer to him!”

I’ve read it helps to put your address as the area you are being recruited from if you do not intend to have them help pay for relocation

I don’t rec this unless you’re within reasonable driving distance OR you know they’re only doing remote interviews. Otherwise, it’s a big headache when they ask you for on-site interviews (flying from SF to NYC on the fly multiple times, for example)

I sometimes listen to Ben Shapiro, I am a libertarian myself.

I've listened to it multiple times now, and it just seems to be people venting their own opinions with certainly not as much substance
