    Hey, I've been applying to jobs in a different location the past few months and I rarely get any responses back. Anyone have any advice how to get noticed from afar?

    What locations have you been applying to? I know here in Nevada we have the highest unemployment rate in the country so hardly anyone would get a response. Maybe you should redo you resume to make it fit the jobs your applying for. :)

    Sorry, here's the story:

    I work as a project manager and sales rep for a construction company. Im in ATL now, but its a small company and has 2 owners. Long story short the owner I work for is retiring and sellign his half to the other owner who is an idiot and his kids will run the company into the ground, if our crews haven't left by then.

    My wife is in chiropractor school, she'll graduate in June. We can't stay in ATL cuz we dont want to and theres already 10million chiros in the area. So we decided to move to Utah. I've been applying for work out there for the last 2 months, dont get too many responses back.

    So I would like to find somethign out there in sales/management as soon as I can. I'm getting a P.O box there so atleast I can put a UT address on my resume. Any other tips? Thanks TW!

    well, unfortunately i never moved out of state to take new job, ..so can't speak from experience.. maybe those companies you applied to are skeptical because you aren't in-state already... not sure what you do to secure a deal.. are you looking for companies who give relocation assistance?.. hopefully someone will reply to this thread who's already been through this..
