Currently, I am living in Columbia, SC and I HATE living here.
My background - I graduated with my MBA In April of 2008, I am still currently looking for positions in sales/management.
My plan is to get an entry level job for around 35,000 - 40,000 (which is decent money in SC) in mngt or sales and save my money. I have a nice car that is paid for and no rent/mortgage because I live with my dad. My goal is to move to Central/Northern NJ to experience NYC in 3 to 4 years, which would mean that I should have some money.
When the time comes for me to move, I am VERY concerned that my future company is going to shrug off my move to Central/Northern NJ.
Basicly, I really just dont know or understand how companies accept or disapprove a person's transfer. In 3-4 years I am moving with or without a job because I will have the money to do so, but of course I would like a good position waiting for me. So I have some questions for everyone!
1. Are job transfers request by employees usually met or disapproved?
2. Should I talk about this with my current boss or contact a person within my company in Central/Northern Jersey. Should I keep my desire to transfer a secret from my current boss?
* I know that I have a better chance of transfering with a large/nationwide company. Also, moving now for me is out of the question because companies are not willing to fly out of state candidates to job interviews that are entry level. I am very unhappy in SC and am looking for a way to get to the NYC metro area with a job waiting for me! Also, I have visited Freehold, Colts Neck and Fair Lawn many times to see friends so please dont start bashing NJ and try to persuade me not to move there
