Relocating Out Of State

Hey all. I'm considering moving out of state (currently living in TN). I'm looking to head to western North Carolina around Asheville, but I've got zero experience relocating or trying to line up work in a city that isn't my own. Anyone have any advice about hunting down job opportunities when moving before I take a leap and wind up broke? I've got my Arkansas journeymans license and some crossover into HVAC. Any input is appreciated.

Re: Relocating Out Of State

Do you have a website? Try optimizing it for a specific location where you're moving to. Also, you could contact an advertising agency where you're moving to and hire them to promote your work for a while. Maybe consider it an investment.
