Were moving out of state this summer (finally!) and its a very rural area. There is a job I want to apply for and I can be in town the week they will be doing interviews. I do have a local address I can put down. Question is, how do I put this info on a cover letter and which address do I put down? It says local residents given preference for the position. My worry is they mail a letter with interview info (have had this happen) and it goes to the mailbox there where no one will be for a couple weeks to get it and I need to know a few days before so I can catch a ride with a family member going up there then I can fly home.


Also, any suggestions on how to explain having been a homeschooling SAHM the past 8 years yet still have job skills? Can't figure out how to make that sound good. I've had to do serious organization/research and scheduling between schooling and medical appts/out of town travel but, yeah, how do I make that sound good and that yes I am available? I still plan to continue HS'ing (the job is at the local 1 and only elementary school so I wouldn't be able hide the fact my kids won't attend, the population is only about 200 people total) and my kids health issues have been resolved so I can return to work but I worry that says "has other commitments".
