Advice Needed: Last month I was laid off from work, however, since have been able to secure another position with another firm (located 90 minutes from my house in a more rural part of the state) doing real estate closings. Aside from the commute and the work (not incredibly fulfilling or challenging) the job is fine. I do consider myself incredibly fortunate to be employed during these challenging times. Do I aggressively continue my job search or wait until the beginning of the year?

Previously doing general corp/transactional work, however, I haven’t seen very many positions for more junior level associates (not sure whether this is because of the election, the state of the economy, or being so close to the end of the year or just a combination of things). I’ve just developed bad anxiety over this situation. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience as this and any advise that you may share.

I thought that with most in-house roles, there would be a conversation about that first to make sure everyone is on the same page. 😩

Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved.

On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
