A year ago I unexpectedly lost my mother who lived close enough that I can see her house from my home office window. I decided that once my youngest graduated I would move. She graduated and I have sent out several resumes to companies for jobs that I am more than qualified for. I’ve had my resume professionally written. I did have a job offer which I declined because the new location was not where I want to live and the pay was low by industry standards. I cannot seem to land an interview in the state that I want to move to. I do not have any connections in the area because I am initially trying to move to a location where I can get a fresh start. How can I catch the eye of hiring managers when I don't have an in?
