Anyone ever seriously consider moving to a small town and just working remotely? Family has some farm land that we may be able to build on, but the cost scares me and idk if my firm would allow me to go fully remote.

Only you and your firm can answer the most important question about you working 100% remote I’m considering moving further away from the city I work in but I doubt that 100% remote will be a thing in my industry (audit) so I’m limited on how far I’m looking. However if we don’t go to around 60% - 80% remote most of the year then I’m going to probably look for a job that will allow it.

I moved 100% remote 3 years ago. Now a supervisor as well. The company has been great with it, but recently I’ve been struggling with feeling burnt out because it can’t seem to get my hours under control. I’d say make sure the area has at least another backup plan for employment if the 100% remote work isn’t all you’ve hoped and dreamed of. Shoot your shot, you’ll never know if the firm would allow it if you don’t ask.

One of my MDs was remote 60% of the time well before quarantine started. Probably mostly depends on your direct managers.

I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
