Flying Out For a Job Interview

Would You Spend Money on a Flight For a Dream Job Interview?

Out of state jobs may ease the problem of the shortage of hiring in your area, but sometimes they can burden your wallet, especially when the interviewer wants to see you in person. Some companies can be quite generous and offer to pay for your flight and hotel stay, but there are many that don't. Do you think it's worth tapping into your precious savings to fly to another city or even to another state for a dream job interview?

I absolutely would. If the new job meant relocating to an unfamiliar area, flying out for the interview would give me an opportunity to check out my potential new city in person. Internet research is helpful, but it's no replacement for physically touring the place that could become your new neighborhood.
