Would my bosses let me move to work in a different state? I work as an internal consultant within KPMG, working for the firm within the internal HR team. I have been with KPMG for 5 months but I am wanting to move back home to be with my family - on the other side of the country. There’s only a 2 hour Timezone difference and I’d make sure to work on current time. My line manager I report to lives in another state to me anyway - and it seems to work well for her. Am I pushing my luck to ask?

I don’t see how it would make a difference - besides not being able to see my team mates face to face everyday (or a few days a week based on new upcoming working from home plans).

P.S there is a KPMG office where my family lives too. But no one in my team works there.

Usually in consulting , they are pretty open/flexible on relo , it helps if you are near a KPMG office . Definitely worthwhile to ask it’s a reasonable request . Good luck 👍

I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump

I would love to get some support getting my resume past initial screening and to a human. If anyone is willing to help please let me know :) thank you in advance!

Need resume help — in college, it was pretty standard to have a consistent amount of bullets (no more than 3-4) for each position. I’d imagine that experienced hires would have probably more for their primary job and only a couple of lines for volunteering or other extracurriculars. Thoughts?
