I would indicate on your resume what city your current role is located in. If you write a cover letter/intro I would indicate it there as well

Just put a local address on your resume. Even if it’s your hotel.

My company just held a round of massive layoffs. A lot of people quit shortly after. They’re now restructuring and the way I see it they have until the end of the year to make or break. I didn’t get cut but I started sending out resumes because I don’t want to wait around for the axe to fall. What’s the best way to answer in an interview when they ask why I want to leave my current position? Is full honesty the best policy, or will that make me look disloyal? I’ve only been there for 10 months.
