    Looking to move back home

    I'm looking to move back home in April. I hate my job and where I live. The company I work for started out great. There were enough people to cover everything and everyone got along for the most part. Now for every 1 person that gets hired 3 leave. I'm in and early learning education center. The people I work with now have this awful mean girl pack mentality. I keep putting off the time I leave for work later and later. I am getting an I-don't-care attitude there with all the drama.

    Now as to where I live. It started out as a lot of more quiet professional types. It now is more of a kind of party place. Some of neighbors now make me nervous to stay there, but I'm stuck in the lease til April.

    I am really homesick. I miss my family and the community in which I grew up. The community where everyone bands together to help each other. I am having trouble finding any work for which I am qualified. I just want to move home in April job or no job but I have a feeling my parents aren't down for that. I could probably stay with them but they want me to have a job.

    I don't know how much of my current job or city I can take. Have any of you all moved back home voluntarily without having a job lined up?

    Would your parents be more amenable to you moving back if you paid rent to them while looking for a job?

    I'd be paying rent regardless. That is what they told me.

    If you work with children you can look into nannying jobs for now since you say your community is so close knit that means you have an established network right?

    Have you been applying for jobs? Have you gotten out and tried to meet new people?

    Why cant you move before April? Even if into a temp. housing place. If it's that bad, you need to move sooner.

    If you plan to move in April, are you currently looking for employment closer to home between now and then? I know you said it was challenging. But are you applying yourself now?
    If you are you may not have to move in with your parents.

    Hi there. I have been in the same place that you are now. The job starts out great then it slowly gets worse as the days go on. Have you considered looking for a job in your hometown while you are still working? It's always easier to find a job while you still have one. Have you thought that if you quit your job and move back home it may be a very long time before you find another job? You want to make sure you are not in that position or maybe work out something with your parents if you move without a job already lined up. I changed jobs but made sure I had another one before I quit. Have you considered getting a job that may not be in your field that would allow you to move home with a job? There is still hope for your future. Don't give up. Maybe start thinking about a change and that will give you hope until you are able to move. Wishing you the best.

    Tune up your resume and LinkedIn profile. Start getting active there and seeing what's in your desired geographical area and career field. Talk to your parents. See if they can let you stay until you find a place. Start browsing the housing market there.

    Keep an open mind about house-shares, apt types, etc. Make compromises with your parents and with a new job and with housing options.

    Use an organized planned approach. Just knowing you have a viable exit plan will make you feel better. But don't jump from the frying pan to the fire in an emotional panic.
