Hi There! While on H1B, can one go on an unpaid LOA while staying in the United States ?
People have been asking me for referrals post COVID and I want to help everyone but I also know that some people won’t be a great fit. Is anyone else facing this? Does it hurt to refer not as strong candidates? I am assuming they will just get rejected?
Had a callback interview at DC big law about a week ago, a few hours before Covid-19 escalated things. Should I assume I did not get it or that it is on pause? Appropriate to reach out again?
Anyone wonders what happens if you are working in US as non resident alien and got COVID19? Nobody is going to care? 😕

I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S. I’m not trying to start a big argument, I’m genuinely just looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
I’m a gambling guy and I can bet $10,000 that Trump does not have COVID and this is a ploy to sway voters through sympathy.,. Though fake, Trump will reduce his social media presence for some days and then return announcing full recovery. Should that happen, he’ll win the election because the country will see him as a “hero”.
Yesterday 2,216 innocent Americans died from COVID. Today, Donald Trump’s only public action was pardoning a person who plead guilty to lying to the FBI to protect Trump. I dare anyone to try to defend that.
5 weeks ago I told my boss we need to start working on a “we’re open again” spot. She basically called me blind for not seeing that the Covid crisis was nowhere near finished and then accused me of not having enough work to do. This morning at 6 am she texted me - “Need you to kick off a ‘we’re open again’ spot with the agency. Tell them they have 1.5 weeks to stand it up.”
