It depends. You certainly have power if you are already employed, or if you have relatively certain employment options. You shouldn't have to jump through hoops for another job, no matter how attractive, if you already have a good job. You should tell the prospective employer, hey, I'm interested, but I'm also happy, and in-demand, so don't waste my time.
The one time I wrote a resume I went to the people at the law school for help. She asked me about my work history and I told her I really didn't have one. She asked if I had any special skills, I said I was kind of a writer. She asked what I'd written and I told her I'd recently sold a novel, she told me to leave it off. I said I'd once written an article that was picked up by a local newspaper, she said leave it off. I told her that was it, she asked what I did in college. I told her I played a little baseball she told me to put that.

The thing that really shows you how depressing the economy has become is the number of applicants I've seen who are so desperate they are just throwing darts at the board at this point. They aren't even remotely qualified to interview because they don't have the necessary technical background in Accounting or Finance. For example, lots of them are ex-real estate industry people whose careers got wiped out when that market went into the wood chipper.

Do employers tend to not want to hire out of towners? Do they usually pick up the expense if they fly you in?
A good cover letter is essentially worthless when hiring robot drones.
