When you are in the market for a job, you may find yourself in the position of needing to travel to meet with hiring managers about potential employment interviews. This is true if you are looking for positions out of town from where you currently live, as well as for corporate jobs where the work may be in your local area but the person you need to meet with for your interview is based at a headquarters location elsewhere.
While travel is not something you’re likely to be asked to for the early rounds of job interviews, if you make the final cut to the last few candidates, you may well find yourself being asked to travel for interview. Companies that invite candidates who are seriously being considered in to meet with home office representatives as a last stop before making a final employment decision typically fund the travel costs on behalf of the candidates they are considering hiring.
Depending on the size and ongoing travel needs of the company you are considering working for, you may find yourself being invited to travel via corporate jet, charter flight or commercial aircraft. Common destinations for these types of business meetings are major markets where large corporate headquarters facilities are located and where there are busy airports with a lot of flights coming in and going out. In New York charter flights are quite common and there are also many flights in and out of any of the region’s commercial airports. It’s also not unusual for companies to have corporate planes based in locations like this.
