Trying to get a job in another city, but having difficulties. Could this be due to my current address?

Hi Savvy Sweeties!

I've been applying for a couple months now and have clearly stated in my cover letter that I plan to relocate. I'm trying to be responsible financially and not move to the new city until I have a job lined up. As soon as I get an offer, I'm prepared to put in my 2 weeks notice and move right away. But how can I best convey this to hiring managers?

I've clearly stated in my cover letter that I am planning to relocate. I've already been rejected once due to the company only wanting to consider local applicants at the time.

I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do to make my resume or cover letter stand out, or if many employers see a non local address and put the application in an automatic "no" pile.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
