I've been invited to an interview in Ireland for a gap year job and I was wondering if the boarding school, where I am applying for the job, would pay for my travel expenses there? It is quite awkward to ask them outright as I'm sure you can imagine haha :rolleyes:

Nah it's the real working world. Pay for everything yourself.

Despite what the other two posters said, the answer is usually yes. My school pays expenses to anyone who attends an interview as a matter of course and I have claimed expenses when I have needed to travel to an interview. The obvious course of action is to check with the school concerned.

I would never work for a company that wouldn't pay for my flights to the interview. In the past the employer has always paid, usually after a successful phone/digital interview.

I've never heard of a potential employer paying travel to interview expenses. If you're the one who wants the job and have applied for it, surely you know you've got to be interviewed there and it's your responsibility to pay for it!

How do you go about asking them? Is it a bit awkward to ask them outright? :/

So do they only reimburse you after they confirm you've gotten the job?

"Hello. You have kindly invited me to attend an interview. I'm just phoning to check that you reimburse travel expenses."

The companies I've worked for booked everything so I didn't have to be reimbursed.
