How do people approach out of state job searches when they are out of college? I know that employers have a strong preference for local candidates when it comes to entry level jobs but if a candidate were to travel 1500 miles at their own expense to interview for a job, would that level the playing field between that candidate and a local one or would the out of state one still be at a significant disadvantage? What are some things you guys have done to maximize success for out of state job searches and how would you recommend that I approach it? I'm generally talking more along the lines of a 200-300 mile radius but if the right opportunity came up 1500 miles away I would consider flying out to meet with them.
