A reader sent me this question related to a very common issue:

I just read the article 22 Secrets HR Won’t Tell You About Getting a Job on Yahoo! and I’d like to know your thoughts about finding a job in another state. I currently live in Chicago and am looking for work in South Florida.

When sending my cover letter / resume, I go back and forth between including my current address or my future address.  Sometimes, I’m reluctant to put down my current address because HR managers might be hesitant to hire or even interviewing out of state candidates.  But I don’t want to be perceived as misleading by putting my future address while I’m still currently employed in another city.
