Job hunting in a small town

Justin Thompson, CareerBuilder, says sometimes people get sick of the filthy, noisy big city or the "valleys" of technology and want to work in a small town, maybe a small college town.

Rural communities have fewer jobs and can require some finesse.

You need to go there, maybe drive to the company and meet face to face.

You might even try something folksy--like sending a hot pizza with your resume at lunch time. Gauche in the city might be lunch in a more practical, casual place.

Reach out to friends, relatives, anyone who knows anyone there.

My advice would be go--poke around--read newspaper ads there. Also check housing ads.
