Kathee,

We weren't even to that point and paying for relocation wasn't mentioned. He just wanted to submit my resume. Besides the fact that this was for a 6 month contract we would just be in the position of one person working again and it would be John looking for work and not me. I've never been to Philadelphia, but John says he hates it.

They don't want to bring you out for an interview, either. Back in the "day" large companies would pay for all of that. My last company would pay for engineers and testers, but not writers.

The job board thing is not personal. Job boards will also send you service writer jobs for auto dealerships. They are dumb.

I think it is reasonable if you have the right skills, the pay is good, and the company is willing to help with relocation that you consider moving. If a company is willing to fly you out and put you up for an interview, the expereince can be worthwhile even if you would not consider moving. Some people don't want to move.
