I’d like to move to the west coast from the east coast, but it seems like firms/companies aim to fill positions locally. How do I show my willingness to relocate ASAP?

Have you even spoken to anyone in the actual firm about it like your direct HR contact or partner

Very true, especially at lower ranks. Your relocation cost can easily add 50%+ to your first years total comp from the companies perspective. For some one with less than 5-10yrs experience a company can just find that locally. One way to get around that (if you don’t have much stuff and your relo would be flights+shipping) is to list “xyz area” on your resume that corresponds to your target city. Then make sure you get enough of a sign on bonus to cover travel for interviews and your own relo. This is how banking recruiting works at bschool

Appreciate the insight; guessing changing my home area on my resume may help a lot. The lack of relocation support is poopy though.

What about transferring with BCG first and then locally, and calmly looking for something else ? Is there an urgency to change jobs ?

I changed my city on LinkedIn in hopes of attracting more recruiters in the city I’d like to move to, but I haven’t noticed a huge change

You work at BCG. You have lots of demand. If you’re intent on moving, quit your job and move. You’ll get another job in 3 months time. If your company really wants you, they will relocate you.

Send me a DM. Let’s see what we can find for you

How do you manage taking on new clients when you are already so busy on other ones? With manager promote coming soon, my teams are going to drop my time (which I get since I will be a manager). But we have no reliable senior or recurring staff. Pretty much opening my schedule up for more client load but I’m still going to need to spend just as much time on my current clients. I feel like I’m about to be thrown to the wolves :(. Any advice much appreciated!

I just started subleasing a room at my new apartment early (actual lease starts mid august, moved in early because one old tenant moved out already). The bathroom is disgusting and clearly hasn’t been cleaned for months. There’s huge brown stains/mold around the drains and the shower gets backed up quickly so I have to turn it on/off so the water doesn’t go up over my ankles. I’m so grossed out, and I realize an obvious solution is that I can clean it myself, but I feel like they should. Advice?
