Me personally, I’m not in a position where I’d feel comfortable starting my life in a new city. I’d only apply to places in my current city. But that’s just me. If you don’t mind starting a new chapter in a new location in your life, go for it! My friends that have moved from coast to coast seem pretty happy with their decision. So I guess at the end of the day, it all depends on you and if that’s something you’re comfortable with.

In the same situation right now. Have talked with agencies in different cities but quickly found I was more comfortable staying in the same city and not moving during a pandemic.

Ah so you’re waiting for an AS jump in your current company rather than moving?

The real question is if you want to move. Ideally you are 100% in and excited about the place (without even thinking about the job). And everyone is different with moving, some thrive and others it’s too much. Exciting you have the option to consider, all the best deciding!

it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
