    Default Move first!

    I have not to long ago. I was in California and was moving back to the east coast. I applied for a job so I could have something lined up when I got there. I had the qualifications but never even received a phone call or anything. I guess they have enough applications from the local area for them not to worry about someone from out of state. Especially if you are looking for relocation allowance.

    Thumbs up

    When I lived in Virginia, I went through the process for the Houston (TX) Fire Department. No major issues, but then again, they put an ad in JEMS, so I think they knew what they were getting into.

    Five years, and one baby, later I went through the process for Fairfax County (VA) from Houston. Again, no major issues, but they were hungry for Paramedics, so they worked with me a bit.
