This may have been discussed elsewhere in the forum at another point, but I'm curious about the following:
What's the protocol for applying to jobs beyond local employment options? Particularly, if one is applying from an opposite coast, is it tremendously unlikely that anything will materialize simply based on the distance involved; even if the applicant states that they are willing to move cross-country at their expense?
With so much uncertainty in the marketplace, it's tough to pick up and move, only to potentially get stonewalled yet again in another market. I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on this.
