I ended up moving to Tampa for my job. Went through 3/4 of my checking account in the process. Agh!

Yeah, I moved a little over a year ago, and it was awful. I'd lived in the same place for about 19 years so I had a lot of crap to go through. I hired movers for the first time in my life, because I lived in a 4th floor walk-up and was moving to another state. Definitely worth it, and fortunately for me, my job reimbursed me for moving expenses.

I will probably move again once I get tenure and buy a house, but for now I'm content to stay in this apartment.

It is definitely a good idea to discuss compensation for moving costs with a new employer. And a lot of big companies will actually pay for it. But there are plenty who will not. Remember, for them it's tax deductible.

They were only willing to pay $0.50/mile + hotel costs (I had a week off to head down here and find an apartment) or they would just pay me a normal week's pay. If I had hired movers or rented a truck or anything they'd have paid for that but I didn't have anything worth moving that wouldn't fit in my car. Furniture, housewares, deposit, rent, Florid plates, insurance, etc. really added up.
