I'm interested in any insight Phoenix members could offer about the current jobs market and the best way to go about a relocation to the area from the east coast. Since I'm unable to attend a Phoenix chapter meeting to network, are there certain recruiting firms that would be willing to work with out of state candidates? I have come across Head Farmer, Ledgent, Career Evolutions, Yoh & Zimmerman and others.
I don't know if you have made the move yet as I am just seeing this post from a year ago; however, it took me about 3 years to relocate here and it was done purly through networking. Headhunters don't seem to work in my experience. You just need to connect with people and ask for further connections. You are doing it right by reaching out through the group, but if you need help, I am happy to connect on LinkedIn.
