I get a lot of emails from consultancies. Send me your email and I’ll forward those to you.

Also, you can work with some consultancy to keep you on payroll and you pay them back the taxes (illegal but happens). This seems to be an option for many but officially I advise against it

Try moving to Canada on PR

The timeline is around 1-1.5 years, depending on your situation

Arrow Icon

Sorry OP, keep trying for the new jobs as suggested. Since the hiring is very uncertain now, try to negotiate with a desi consultancy to run your payroll temporarily. Some companies do that if you pay them.

I am proud to say that my firm did the right thing today. Instead of Associate salary cuts or layoffs, they suspended equity partner share payments and suspended hiring and spending. A plus.

Has anyone here filed for unemployment in California? I got laid off 2 weeks ago and at the time was seeing projections online that the fed govt pmts would only cover about 25 million ppl (not sure how accurate that is). My claim is still pending with CA but the total amount projected per week is only $400; doesn’t include an extra $600 fed govt pmt. Does anyone know if the $600 gets added somewhere else in the process? I hope I didn’t just miss out because I was lay-off 25,000,001

For those that have been working with health systems on COVID testing, what have the isolation / quarantine protocols been after someone tests positive? The current CDC recommendations don't seem to match my current understanding. Current CDC recommendation: 10 days have passed since you had a positive test (asymptomatic). If symptomatic, 10 days since onset of symptoms, 24 hours since fever (no meds), and symptoms are "improving" Elsewhere: 14 days, or 10 days with 2 neg tests 24 hours apart.

Today she told everyone that her son became a close contact of a confirmed case when the kids had a party... and now she’s scared and anxious and worried waiting for her son’s test result... what can I say...
