I am looking. To accept a position out of state within my company. The position is posted and I am very likely to get the job .it would be an internal transfer. The recruiting HR told me that me that I am the top candidate but I shouldn’t expect relocation package . They would just give little something to help with the move. Should I push to get the relocation package or just be happy with what they give me.
