Unemployed Lawyer Planning to Move Out-of-state Unsure About Bar Issues

By
Question:
I am a second-year associate and was laid off from my job in March 2009. Since then, I have focused my time on finding a new job. I am completely open in terms of geography and have applied to a number of jobs in different states. I finally secured an interview with an out-of-state firm, and while I am excited at the opportunity, I am not sure how to address the fact that I am not yet barred in the state. What do you recommend?
