I am wanting to find a new job in a different state. I currently live in Missouri. I also want to try and stay with the same company if I can. I see some job openings for my company, but they are all in different states (such as Phoenix AZ and Washington DC). So I have a few questions about this:
1. If you want to avoid having your potential new employer call your current employer as a reference (otherwise the current boss will know I am looking), how do you go about doing this? How does this usually work out?
2. I heard that most employers will trash a resume if it's from another state. I don't want to lie, but I also want to have a chance at a job. What should I do about that? Again, what's the usual protocol?
3. I obviously have no clue about what I'm supposed to look out for or what I'm supposed to focus on when trying to relocate to another state within the same company. What unspoken rules to follow? What unspoken guidelines to follow for scoring a new job in another state?
