Hello everyone,

I gave an interview round 1 today and I got shortlisted from that, but then HR told me that for the final round you have to travel to a different state and the tickets would be reimbursed.

But the thing is it's difficult for me to travel for an interview to 1000s of KM.

How should I handle it and not loose the opportunity also?

Please advise.

Similar thing happened with me few weeks back.. In the very first email which I received from company they had questions like why our company? n would you be Ok to come for an one on one interview at _ _ _ location?.. and s**t... I really wanted to know about their culture and team, opportunity was worth trying.. So, What I did is, I wrote answer in a paragraph form instead of addressing every question one by one and in the end I put up a question, Do you think that, It is worth showing up for an interview from _ _ _ to _ _ _ would be a good idea? (Not like this but I put it very nicely) and further I politely mentioned that, It will be great to meet you on 1to1 zoom call, and assured them that webcam will be correctly placed to help them observe body language and posture.

I received positive response from them, currently waiting for 2nd round.. 1st zoom meeting happened with company board advisor, it went as planned..

So what I had to sacrifice to convince them.. A little time to think for a nicely worded email and had to wore full formal during zoom call.. gave laundry wala 10Rs. and saved myself 7-8k travel cost, 3-4k hotel stay.. as well as hassle..
