I spent about 4 months looking for a job.
When I was looking around, I made it a point to let them know that I have no problems re-locating etc.
Color me nuts - but I received ONE call from LA, California and about a dozen and half calls from the South (actually all of them from Texas and new Mexico).
I received ZERO calls from the East and North East.
I'm currently in the midwest and all this was about 8 months or so ago
I am of the opinion that the "hiring" process and market could use a bit of fine tuning and re-organization. Seems a little haphazard from my perspective.
