    I've been looking for a graphic design job to do for a year before UNI since i just finished a graphic design HND course in college, and i recently got an interview request after a month of applications but the location of this company is extremely far from my house and it would take two trains and two hours to get there, is it worth it? the salary is apparently £18k a year but i feel travel expenses would eat up most of that salary.

    If it's not practical then it's not ideal but it depends on what else you have in the pipeline, how much you need this job and experience and whether you can move closer.

    Why did you apply for it if distance or actually being offered it was a problem? 2hrs is too much imo, so renting a room would have to be an option.
