also, as a follow up to my question, i am interested in knowing:
1. if there is a saturation of experience candidates for jobs in cali (bay area), and they don't want to bother with an out of state person
as opposed to
2. if they have a more hard and fast, policy driven reason unique to california licensing requirements, etc., why they will not call back a candidate w/o an active cali license
again, i'm just wondering bc as an out of stater, it is hard to get a ton of insight into the job market there, and it is asking a lot to pay $200 just to make oneself eligible for jobs if it's a total longshot to even get a callback.
