I am currently in Miami working a temp position that will end in 3 weeks.
I am going to relocate back to New York to live with my family, but would like to start applying to jobs there ASAP. When I forward my resume, it will still say I live/work in Miami. Should I put an end date on my current job on my resume?
Will it hurt my chances of anyone calling me? How should you change your resume when relocating?
