Depends on the agency. The smaller agencies I’m interviewing with have made it clear they don’t offer relo (currently in Chi, trying to move back to NY). But R/GA gave me $3k of relo + flight when I moved to NY from LA as a senior planner.

Varies by company and role

Most places give some form of a relo, it may just not be enough to cover the full move. I'd wait to move until you have something lined up.

I’m in Chicago trying to get a new job and move to NYC. Already have had someone say to talk to them once I’m in the city :/

Option a generally unless you are very senior

Yea, it usually depends on how many years you have and the role you’re applying for. Generally though, being in the city always helps

It’s hard because I don’t want to move then not get a job and not be able to afford to live there. But it seems like no ones looking at my book bc I’m not in the city!

I was a junior and I got 2k for relo to NYC. It may not cover the full move after taxes are taken out, but it is possible OP. Don't let others tell you relo isn't a thing, it is. That being said, no shame in couch-surfing and freelancing if NYC is really what you want.
