Job hunting when you want to move to another part of the country?
Has anyone got any tips/stories they can share with me? Basically, I want to move to another part of the UK, but I've got to get a job before I go as I couldn't afford to pay months of rent without knowing if a job was on the horizon. [BTW, I couldn't just take any job as I'm in a profession where that would be frowned on]. I just wondered whether this would put some employers off. I have spoken to some managers I know and some said they wouldn't care that an applicant didn't currently live in the area. Others have said that they would 'cause they'd worry the person might end up wanting to go back home. I was advised to mention my reasons for moving on an application form which I've been doing. But I've sometimes got the impression at interviews that the interviewer does have concerns, but they never ask me about them. If anyone has any views/advice etc I'd be jolly grateful! (sorry, for rambling on BTW)
