Was laid off by EY few weeks back, had 60 Days to find an employer and get them to apply H1B for me. Subtracting the h1b app time, roughly had 5 wks to land an offer in this economy. Landed a consulting offer and an offer from a small Bay Area Data firm for a TechCloud Product Manager (choosing this) I was able to exit consulting in 5 weeks, something I was trying for over 1.5 years. What worked? Going away from the FAANG mindset, look at sm/mid sized firms and being open!

Everyone! I need your help! I was laid off due to a reduction in force certainty impacted by COVID-19! I am based in Atlanta, Georgia and I am currently seeking Business Analysts, Project Manager, Scrum Master, or Product Manager opportunities. Please, any help is appreciated. Thank you.

What’s the difference between exiting at C vs M (or SC)? I’m interviewing for a Product Manager role that would net at least a 20% salary increase. At the same time, I’m having second thoughts about leaving consulting given the current trend of layoffs.

International student and Deloitte C here who was laid off recently. Given the circumstances (COVID, my visa status, Trump’s new executive order), I need to find a new job ASAP or I risk being uprooted from a country I’ve invested so much into. I graduated with a degree in civil engineering, co-founded a social impact startup at 20 and worked for ~2 years in Deloitte. Ideally looking to pivot to something more strategy based but any and all leads will be greatly appreciated at this point!

Hello there, i’m wondering if anyone on this group has experience opening your own agency? I was laid off in April and had been freelancing ever since.

How do you get more clients and dealing with the sales/pitching process on your own? also as WOC i don’t feel like have the right network to tap into for higher earning projects
