I started my first account job in Feb. As a junior account person, do you think I would be hindering my growth if I decide to stay remote? Right now, my team is split across BOS and NY, but I can’t wrap my head around the cost of living in those cities. I’m not opposed to being in those cities for the job opportunities, but I just don’t think I could afford to do so. And truthfully, I don’t know if I want to.

My first apartment in Boston was a three bedroom that was $800/mo., if you really dig deep you can make it affordable. For what it’s worth, my starting salary in Boston back in 2014 was $33k and now in 2021 it’s $115k, you climb up over time and things become more affordable

Account jobs inherently require face to face time, you’ll definitely be holding yourself back if you aren’t ever in person to build those relationships.

Big time hindering of your growth at that level if you down that route. Lots of what you learn when first starting in account is what you hear and observe from senior people. HCOL is going to be part of every major city.
