How to find a job from other cities
When it comes to remote work, the candidate’s place of residence may not matter at all. Although it happens otherwise, if the interaction involves regular personal meetings.
In situations, when the personal presence of the employee in the workplace is necessary, it makes sense to pay attention to, first and foremost, on jobs where it is agreed that candidates wishing to move.
But that is no reason to ignore the rest of the appropriate sentence. It is not excluded that for the employer, it may not be critical. But count on indemnification of expenses of travel for interviews and relocation to the place of future work is most often not necessary, although there are exceptions.
Often, job offers in another city can also be found in your region: on specialized employment websites, in relevant sections of local forums, print media, and recruiting agencies.
Most of these vacancies are associated with a professional occupation, but there are proposals for specialists with higher education. The costs of moving and accommodation at the place of work (though not acceptable to all, if we are talking about a hostel) can be compensated by the employer.
The next step of selecting the candidate, resume, cover letter and examples of work (if applicable) is interested in the employer is usually the interview. In some cases it is preceded by a test, but it could be the reverse sequence. Can do without the test, but without an interview usually does.
The perfect option for the applicant — the willingness of the employer to conduct a video interview via Skype. The opportunity now provide its users with some of the sites for employment. For Example, "Work.ru".
If your prospective employer is ready for a remote interview, prepare for him no less responsible than a personal meeting. Take care of the presence of an Internet connection, a microphone, headphones or speakers, webcam.
Keep in touch at the appointed time. Dress as you would going for a personal meeting, this includes options for remote work. It is unlikely that the interviewer will be pleasant to contemplate on the monitor of a man in a t-shirt, pajamas or Bathrobe.
And for the rest, keep yourself as if in a personal business meeting.
You can first move to another city and look forthe job already in place. In this case it makes sense to emphasize in the summary that you have in place (it is sufficient to define the settlement in the section on place of residence, it is possible the area or the nearest metro station).
But it is worth considering that the job search can be delayed, and all this time you need somewhere and live for something.
Ideal if you have other reasons for moving: family circumstances, admission to study, etc.
