Aw, hang in there you'll get things figured out. You have to start somewhere in order to get somewhere. Best wishes!

I suppose that if they really desired your services, then they would at least opt to shoulder (some of) the travel expenses. My company flew me all the way to Korea; hopefully, they can accommodate you. As for the interview, like everyone else said, phone or Skype, if they prefer. Mine was done over the phone.

That's not even funny op :(( I actually feel bad for you! Well hopefully if its a large firm or company, they can do a video/phone interview or even have one of their associates interview you instead of making you travel far! Good luck! :)

OP could ask his parents to buy his flights, and promise to pay them back if he gets the job.

I don't see why the employer would even want this person to travel around the country for an interview, she's not even hired yet

Find out if you can borrow some money from a friend or family member, perhaps? Sorry man, I hope everything goes well.

I hope that somebody can help you out with the expenses, and if you are successful in getting the job, you can pay them back.

Might as well start walking now. If you make it not only will you have that job opportunity, but some really toned legs as well.

Actually with the way the economy is now, it is very difficult to find a job, even with a degree, no matter how much "clout" their chosen degree has.

Well aren't you just ridiculously ignorant. Jobs, these days, aren't easy to come by, no matter what degree you have. In fact, in many situations, people with many GOOD degrees don't get hired, because the better your degree is, the higher your pay is supposed to be. So basically, people with a super good degree cost more money, which is why people with a not so super good degree are preferred by a lot of employers. That and... You know, our economy is kind of shitty right now anyway, so there

I think the distinction to be made between a "good" and a "bad" degree is here not based on how advanced your studies have been and how high a salary your education warrants, but rather what field you studied in and how the chances are of you getting a job in said field. English literature, for example, is a field where you simply won't get a job for quite a few years, because you have about 5-10 times as many people graduating each year as there are new job openings.

I would love to know how one majors in "philosphy," and what exactly that entails. I guess we know 11 isn't majoring in English.

I just graduated in May from a science and engineering school, and our employment rate is still over 90%, because we have useful degrees. Some degrees have virtually 0% unemployment, even now. So your degree can have a big impact on your employment.

I have an arts degree and have been turning down 3 jobs offered to me in the last week alone. Instead of worrying about other people's "shitty degrees" you might want to contemplate your shitty attitude.
