QuestionLeaving the State Pin

Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to peruse this post.

I am looking for a job in another state, and in this troubling economy a lot of employers are hesitant to interview candidates from out of state for fear of relocation costs. In spite of the fact that I am not seeking them, I feel like this is causing a hindrance. The job boards are flooded with recruiters searching for people as well, but I wonder if a recruiter is not more harm than good given the circumstances.

With that said, I would like to hear tips on transitioning states. Also, in regards to creative resumes do you guys think the old classic boiler plate resume is the way to go or do you think there is some substance to adding a little bit of color or background to your resume? Something like this website for example (Minus the adds unless I can sell the adspace on my resume?). Something like a simple menu across the top containing name, address, etc... and maybe a left nav style bar as well.

If those ideas are completely weak, let me know. I just think something a little more artful would be eye catching, but it could suck. As a senior level programmer I am trying to find ways to stand out. I thought about writing the resume into an interactive program, but any company that would run a random exe on a disc they got in the mail might have bigger issues.

I was thinking of getting about 100 resumes on disc with some portfolio work and mailing it out to a hundred companies or so and hoping for the best. Anyone have experiences to share?

I appreciate the input, cheers... EA
