I'm trying to move to a different state. How do I get an apartment without a local job or local cosigner?

I am currently trying to move to California. The rental companies I have talked to about signing a lease have said I either need a local job making three times the monthly rent, or a California cosigner.
I have a job now. I will take whatever job I can in California to make rent while I look for a better one. I have a few thousand dollars saved, and a college degree to make the transition easier. My dad is willing to cosign the lease with me, but does not live in California.
Other than living in a motel until I find a job, how can I make the move to California? Should I keep calling rental places until I find one that will accept an out of state cosigner?
