I graduated with my Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications with certificates in Multicultural Marketing & Digital Video productions from FSU and have 2 YOE in the field working in house & at a comms agency. I’m looking to move to the Boston area & every mentor/recruiter I’ve spoken to has told me im hot talent but I cant seem to get a bite. The only way i got an interview monday was after disclosing i wont need relocation. Is throwing out candidates from out of state common right now?

I simply think companies are looking to keep costs low. Hiring in state or employee's who won't need relocation saves them money. Plain and simple.

Yeah it's common if they already have local candidates who they won't have to help relocate. If you can afford to relocate yourself say so; it'll likely get you more bites.

Hmm I didn't think it was common. But of course these companies will do anything to save a buck.

Will this be a hire to fire case?
