Applying out of state: Good to include desire to relocate in cover letter?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Do you think it's beneficial to include desire to relocate in a cover letter for jobs out-of-state?

I have the license for the state to which I'm applying, but it's pretty obvious from my educational and job history that I don't currently live in the area. I've been trying to address this in my cover letter by emphasizing that living in that state is my deliberate goal, but I'm concerned I may just be undermining myself by doing this...Thoughts?

Thank you 🙂

I don’t think you’re doing any harm. Simply show that you’re readily willing to relocate and enthusiastic to start a new career there. If you’ve ever been in the area you might even expand with an additional sentence. Just don’t get out of hand with it and keep everything short and sweet.
