I have a job offer but have to relocate. I have absolutely no money and nothing left. I do have a car but job is 700 miles. I asked for relocation loan from employer but was told they don't do that.

What can I do to get from my current city to the new one without the money?

    Can you add details, like... when you interviewed did you discuss possible relocations and did you say you were open to it, etc. Or is the relocation a total surprise

    Do you currently have a job? Can you borrow money from a bank?

You could explain your situation to the Salvation Army and check what services they can offer to people in your situation.

You could also try explaining your situation to the government public assistance, where they could give you a small emergency grant to keep you alive until your situation straightens out.
