Job postings that state: "Local Candidates Only"

I’ve noticed a lot of job postings say ‘Local Candidates Only”. What’s up with that?

This is not uncommon with entry level positions. Local candidates are more readily accessible for interviews and are typically ready to start immediately (i.e., won’t have to relocate, find a place to live, etc.). They also won’t request or expect a moving allowance. This also keeps the number of applicants to a more manageable level.
