I'm looking for jobs on the other side of the country to where I'm currently based and, since uploading my CV to a few major jobsites, I have been receiving 10-15 calls/emails a day from recruiters.
Normally this wouldn't be a problem (I'm looking for a job after all!) but almost every single one of these recruiters is only offering me positions in my current area, rather than the area I'm trying to relocate to. This often ends up with me scheduling a phone call, and having a 10 minute conversation about the job details before finding out it's in the wrong location.
I want to be able to politely let recruiters know early in the conversation (before scheduling a call) that I'm not interested in positions in my current area, but don't want to put off recruiters who may be contacting me about jobs in the prospective location.
A few clarifications;
- My current location isn't on my CV, but most of the jobsites I signed up for require a street address which is probably then passed on to recruiters.
- It's a combination of emails to set up a call and getting direct calls from recruiters because I (rather naively) included my phone number on my public CV.
- The distance between my current location and target location is around 400 miles.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
