couple of things.... 1) Could you please use sentences with periods at the end and caps at the beginning so we can tell what you are asking/saying. 2) I have no idea what you are asking and why 3) First you state that it would be an hour commute one way and then you just jump into asking "how do I answer the question of extensive travel". Where is there a question about 'extensive travel'? Am I missing something? 4) What does 'the right perfect answer' mean? 5) Because of questions 1, 2, 3 and 4, are you sure this is for a teaching position???? yikes!

    let me rephrase I have been asked by employeers why are you driving all the way out here for a job? I'm not sure how to answer that question so that they are comfortable and satified. for complicated reasons I can't teach in the county I live in and I have exahusted the job market within the 1 hour driving radius. The right answer was supposed to be a joke. just wanted someone to say "yaddah yaddah yaddah" and presto I'd get the job and yeah I'm sure about the teaching job. I kick ass at it!!

    well with this economy...... I can understand why these employers an hour away are asking. If the job is not a real high paying job then I would wonder why the commute as well. With the price of gas and a lot can happen in a 2 hour commute per day (car breaks down, run out of gas, oversleep and you end up late, any appts you would have would be an hour away one way so you would have to take off more time than someone who is closer, etc, etc.) I don't know how to answer that. I just know in my last management job we needed to hire an admin assistant and I would not hire anyone who had more than a 20 mile commute one way because the price of gas had gone up so much that they would not make enough to afford the commute starting at $12 an hour. I was the manager and I was getting killed on gas commuting 15 miles one way, 30 miles round trip. Plus, we had had too many people in that position prior that lived far away and they were always either late, car breaking down or running on appts for the rest of the day before noon because they didn't want to come all the way back to office again. That is also a lot of wear/tear on your vehicle so upkeep is more expensive as well. Any options for you to relocate closer to where the jobs are?
