I have never had a credit card. The only loans I've had have been student and car loans. Both of those I always paid on time; both are paid off.
I have accepted a job offer and am now looking to scrape together some funds for relocation. I am guessing I would need no more than $5000. I am coming off being unemployed but can perhaps show offer letter as proof of income? What kind of credit or loans could I qualify for for these purposes? What is the best kind to get? I plan to pay it down as soon as possible. What is typical for this situation?
