SA Firm to Provide Housing?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Mar 28, 2013 10:55 am

Hi All:

Might be a dumb question, but in a short questionnaire for my upcoming SA position, I was asked if I needed housing and, if so, what I wanted. It did not provide any other details. Should I assume that my housing is being covered for the summer? Is this normal? I'd rather not pay an arm and a leg for a swanky pad if I am expected to flip the bill.

Thanks.

Note: This is in a secondary market.

Likely asking whether you need help finding housing. I wouldn't expect them to pay for a dime other than the location services.

+.5. I wouldn't even expect most firms to pay for a SA's relocation.

Good point. For clarification, I was talking about merely putting OP in contact with an apartment locator, not moving expenses, etc.
