I thought this a general question that a lot of the new graduates and wait-listers who are looking for a job might be interested in. I applied to a position with a large company a few weeks ago and I had a phone interview with one of the recruiter. She was very interested in my application and wants to invite me for an interview. The problem is that the firm is located 600 miles away and I realize that I would need to fly there and stay at a hotel. So far, I haven't schedule my interview yet, but I was wondering if anyone knows whether its the company or the firm's responsibility to cover part of the cost of the trip. The firm is aggressively trying to recruit new associates and I have about a year of experience in their specialty. How should I bring this up and kindly ask them if they'll defray some of the cost of the trip when I schedule my interview with them?
