Out-of-Town Interviews

If an interview is located outside of your local area, you should discuss with the office manager, recruiting coordinator, or secretary, how the arrangements will be handled and who is going to be responsible for the costs. Some large firms will pay for your travel, accommodations and reasonable expenses. However, make sure you discuss this with the recruiting coordinator as to how the firm handles such matters. If you are traveling to a city for more than one interview, alert all the firms of this to give them the opportunity to split your travel costs between them. You should also contact other employers in the area that you are interested in to determine if you can arrange additional interviews. Small firms, government agencies and public interest employers generally do not pay for travel.
