How Do I Say I Am Willing To Relocate?

Kent Nolen

Q. I am completely open to moving for the right job. How do I say that I am willing to relocate?

A. The cover letter is where you want to share things like a willingness to relocate. Keep in mind two important things:

  • Unless you offer an extremely in-demand skill set, companies will likely be reluctant to cover expenses associated with relocating. Make sure you share that you don’t need assistance with relocating expenses (if that is the case). One very tactful way to accomplish this is to communicate that the move is underway. I suggest something like, “I am currently in the process of relocating to City, State. During that time, I remain fully available to speak with you about this exciting opportunity.”
  • Employers will likely be inundated with resumes from local applicants, so applying from a distance will put you at a disadvantage. If you can use an address that is local to the employer, consider doing so.
