If we were anticipating relocating from one area of California to another (i.e. NorCal to SoCal), how far in advance should I apply for jobs? I know it's hit or miss with some markets (i.e. sometimes it's hot, other times it's stale... it took a couple of months before getting callbacks for jobs when we first moved to Northern California, and I came with ICU and med-surg experience), so timing is a big factor.. but does anyone have a good, tasteful time range recommendation?
