  • I found these links from a google search. Just type in transfer cna license to colorado and look at the results. I am sure there is a lot more info than the little bit I pulled up. and you'll understand it better than I will (I'm an artist.)

    And, here is the CNA application for endorsement:

  • First, look to see if you can transfer within your current field.
    Then talk to companies that hold your title and have phone interviews. A LOT of people aquire a job before they move to a new location.

  • the way things are right now- getting a job before you are THERE might be pretty hard- we just moved to a new state and my husband ran into problems with companies not wanting to talk to him really because he was out of state and they would tell him they were gonna talk to people in the area and get back to him.
    Good luck

  • There are a lot of online job boards. You could find a job that way. Another thing you can do is get the phonebook of the place you're moving, too, and call their HR departments directly and ask if they are hiring.

  • Coloradojobs.com is a GREAT site and i think it has where u can upload a resume and get in touch with employers (my husband has been looking for a new job as well but i didn't sign up on the site) also CO has alot of resources available for job searchers, just go to http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/CDLE-Main/CDLE/1240336821467 and i bet u can find almost all the answers to your questions! Good luck and welcome back to CO! :D

  • Absolutely! You may be able to find on that will provide relocation assistance.

    I suggest getting a local (Colorado) address, even a PO box)

  • I have had to move a lot in the past and got really tired of trying to find a new job. A friend introduced me to a home based business that really works. Now, if I ever decide to move again, I can take my business with me without intruption. Most of my work is done on the phone, so that is all I need. If you would like to look at what I do: www.greatworkplan.com/genegodwin GOOD LUCK!
