I had talks with my RL about transitioning into the consulting practice internally, however I was told it wasn’t reasonable due to Covid, I just recently applied to the client and was then staffed onto a consulting engagement for 4 months. Has someone been in a similar boat that would be able to point me on if this is actually a realistic chance for me to get into the consulting practice or if they are only trying to keep me at pwc and staff me back on audit.

Hi Partners - Any tips on expressing interest in transitioning roles to one closer to home without burning bridges? I really like my sr manager and he went to bat for me to get promoted but I am interested in finding a project with a closer commute (current commute can be ~ 2.5 hours round trip per day). The current role looks like a longer term role but we have projects significantly closer to home which I am interested in, and it will help me spend more time on a budding relationship that is getting more serious in my personal life. Any thoughts on how to frame this convo with manager while keeping a good relationship? 😬 I'm okay if I take a hit on my performance rating etc. thanks so much for your time!
