Depends on the type of profession. For instance my husband gets offers from other states often because of his experience and skills set in the computer programming industry. These type of professional jobs make companies willing to relocate the right applicant.

If you work for a large retail or restaurant chain they may be willing to let you transfer to a Philadelphia location but not pay moving expenses.

But if you are looking for something less specialized why would a company relocate someone when there are tons of local applicants? Or do you have to money to fly here multiple times for interviews?
