Has anyone been able to secure a new job with H1-B while outside US? I was recently laid off and am outside US. I have a valid H1-B for another two years. Any one in similar scenario who has been able to secure a job?

Outside where ?

The challenge will be the time zone I guess. Finding a job shouldn’t be a problem, at the moment anyway since everyone is still remote. You can have your visa processed premium too. Can you find a job with BCG India ?

It is possible. Interviews are all virtual anyways and you still have two years on your visa. Reach out to recruiters and it should work. Good luck!

Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers.

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
