Ask for a loan?

After being unemployed for 7 months, I have finally received a job offer. However, due to delay in starting and the natural wait for the first paycheck, it will be at least a month before I receive my first paycheck. I am in difficult circumstances right now, and unable to pay my current rent. What would you think about asking my new employer for some sort of assistance in this matter?

You could ask for an advance, however since you just started this job that might set a negative tone William Snyder Are there any friends of family members you could borrow the money from and let them know you will pay them back once you receive your first paycheck? Have you spoken to your landlord yet? Be honest and upfront and tell them what is going on.
