I applied for a new grad position at a hospital over 900 miles away from where I currently stay. I received a phone call from the HR office and they asked me if I could come in this Friday for an interview, I told them yes hesistantly. Thinking maybe some friends and I could drive and split expenses but everyone I spoke with either works or are not financially capable to assist me while on the drive. My question is would it be unprofessional to call them on Monday and ask for a phone interview explaining my circumstances financially. I did not think I would be asked to come in for an interview so abrupt because I applied a week and half ago for the position. Im really interested in the position as this is a magnet hospital in a metropolitan region across the country. I feel if I get the job that money can be used towards moving expenses but if I didnt get the job then all of that money to travel there would be a waste to my already tight budget.
