Should I continue the interview process for a job that mentioned relocating whenever offices open (possibly next summer) even though I’m not looking to move? I said I’d be open to it but in reality I don’t think I want to move and I’m wondering if they’ll just let me be remote if I do get the offer

TAKE THE MONEY AND WALK

If you are interested in the job, continue the interview process and negotiate work location this when you get the offer. Just don’t lie and say you will move during the interview process — your “open to moving” language is good. Once they make you an offer, they want you, and they will likely willing to make concessions on salary and/or location. And if it ends up not being an acceptable offer to you, you walk then. No need to stop the interview process early unless you 100% know you do not want to take the role.

I'm literally in the same boat. I think I also used the open to moving language, but not sure if in an interview I said something more definite. I think it was more along the lines of the moving wouldn't necessarily be a dealbreaker. Just got a verbal offer and now really nervous about trying to negotiate location.

How much do you want this job? Could always move for it then request to be remote or transfer cities.

(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement.

A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
