Steve Langerud 07sm"Relocating for a job is a fresh start -- a chance to reinvent yourself," begins an article which quotes DePauw University's "career coach." Ritika Trikha writes, "It’s an opportunity to wow a new team of colleagues with an awesome first impression and tackle a new set of challenges."

The piece notes, "The truth is, nowadays relocation packages are most commonly reserved for executive level professionals. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask, says Steven Langerud, director of professional opportunities at DePauw University. 'After all, the worst they can do is say no,' he says ... If you’re one of the lucky few, ask for the actual costs to be reimbursed or paid directly versus a flat fee, if possible, Langerud advises."
