[quote="jjenkins"]If you don't want the job enough to figure out how to get there, maybe don't apply? Leave the jobs for those with true passion and drive. You sound like a socialist - gimmie more, gimmie more.

socialist??? WTF! you're so stupid, YOU don't know the difference between Government and "Private Industry"...

You have the socialist mentality of whining about what others aren't doing for you. Stop being a baby and try creating enough value that someone would pay for your sorry butt to move. It takes hard work kid, try it some time.

I don't think it really has anything to do with how hard a person is working. I think the topic is more about comparing how much times have changed. Before all the recession and economy BS, applying for a job across the country and getting a move paid for came with the territory of working in the business. Now, it isn't.

As far as accusing people of not having passion or whining about the status quo - lighten up, dude. The passion is there for all of us and I think it shows in the fact that we're willing to pack up, regardless of what attachments we have to our current situations, and move away. It doesn't make someone a baby or say they aren't valuble enough because times are different.

If you were offering enough value you would have your moving expenses covered - simple capitalism (and math). The fact that you are not getting offers to cover your expenses says more about your talent than anything else. Newsflash: businesses want to make money. If you can bring it in with your talent then you will be taken care of. It sounds like you should be seeking work as a Walmart greeter instead.

jjenkins you are a moron and i don't know why i waste my time arguing with you.
i will just say this, after being hired ,i have NEVER paid for my own move in over 30 years, and i will not apply to jobs that say in their post that moving expenses are not included. i will assume that if moving expenses are not mentioned in the job posting, it will be paid or we can negotiate terms.

Nothing here is new. I've been a radio guy a loooong time and have moving stories going back to the beginning up to recent times. Budgets might be tighter now but this has ALWAYS been an issue for all but the very top gigs. My opinion - if they want you & you want to work for them and moving cash is tight on both sides - you can usually find a creative way to get it done.

The truth is that most stations DON'T want you that bad. I'm not sure why you don't just start your own business and take advantage of the media technology available today. Radio stations aren't as open to letting jocks talk and create a personality on the air so you will have to take your scary talent to YouTube I guess.

Hay nanglo, are you such a broke loser that you can't afford to rent a moving truck? If so, I wouldn't want to trust you as an employee. Anyone that tells an employer they won't take the job because they can't afford a U-Haul is a red flag.

I love radio and have had my moved paid for and I have been told the will reimburse me and they didn't..

In answer to the question of most companies out side of radio don't.. My Friend just moved from Boston to San Diego for large pet company and paid her 15k for the move.

Radio needs to start treating the talent with just a touch of respect we are for the most part the lowest paid in the building and yet if we were a talent in in other industry movies,tv,video games etc we would be the highest paid and garner some respect.

But guess what "Chaddy?" You are not "a talent in in other industry movies,tv,video games etc." You are a radio moron. Radio requires ZERO talent today and in fact REQUIRES zero talent because anyone with a voice and with talent wouldn't spend their life in an industry where "music is the star" and talent is told to shut up. If you had any real talent you would not be in radio.
