Would like to take a job in an Alaskan Fishing Factory and will have to be background checked in Washington. No money for travel but highly motivated to acquire job position.
Research the company and hiring manager or would be manager/leader to such things like their needs, recent prior events (& whom else would have been there), near future company goals, products and find a place within that need structure where you would add material value.
Then craft what is called a Speculative Application. Get yourself into a position in which travel might be an option as part of your roles.
Hi there. The answer is very simple. You can just ask them if they cover travel costs. Really this is not something you should be afraid of.
Usually people are afraid to ask employers/potential employers questions like these due to fear of seeming greedy. A question like this will not put your job offer at risk.
Like with all things, the manner in which you ask will make all the difference.
Try being honest, and explain that you traveling to Washington will be a major financial burden and ask if they would be willing to cover the full or portion of the cost.
