Is my husband getting fired? Tonight he got a meeting invite with his bosses boss and an HR director. Meeting is titled “critical business update” my HR gut thinks this is a termination meeting. He’s had a hard last month or two with work due to some circumstances out of his control. He isn’t on a PIP or anything formal, but his boss did have a recent verbal chat about performance. He’s a software engineer for context.


Looking for referrals from kind internet strangers for my husband whose 60 days starts today.

He is a principal software engineer with RSA which was a part of Dell until a week ago. Dell sold the company to a private equity firm that laid off 90% of all US staff.

YOE - 9+ development including 2+ as a technical manager
Skills - Javascript, ember, angular, node, html, css and docker
Roles - principal front end engineer or engineering manager
Requires H-1B transfer and open to relocation


My husband was affected by covid related layoffs this morning from a cybersecurity product company. He is a principal software engineer with 9+ years of front end experience (angular, ember, node, html css). Located in Virginia but open to move anywhere and would need immigration support. Any pointers to companies that are hiring right now / a referral from a kind internet stranger would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello. I graduated, and I need honest opinions. I have a few offers on the table. One of them KPMG for Audit and others for Commercial Banking Middle Market Analyst think BMO, Huntington Bank . Both positions offer almost the same salaries. The only difference is commercial banking pays over time. What would be a better carrier path leading to more opportunities? Which one would be more recognized if I were looking to switch position? KPMG BMO EY Huntington Bank JPMorgan Chase


Has anyone ever had a verbal offer rescinded? I received a verbal offer on Friday and on Monday they sent me an email to recind it! Isn’t that the most unprofessional thing you ever heard of? I cancelled my job interviews for this week because I thought I had a job! How would you respond to this? I’m so angry!
