How long does "not eligible for rehire" last? My AWS manager says he disagrees I was put on Focus by my skip level (Focus is a coaching program before Pivot aka PiP), and if I leave now it's automatic "not eligible for rehire."

You know that it might be easier to just start over somewhere else


You reckon there is a possibility your manager knows you have another offer?

I agree. I think it's a good idea to move on. If you have a good opportunity that's come your way, maybe it's a sign..


I'd probably stick it out and see if there is something you can do to improve performance before quitting so you can avoid the "not eligible for rehire." Amazon tends to keep things on record forever and you may want the opportunity to work there again without having that as a potential barrier.


Take the severance. The way this field is growing and your location...I doubt they will care about your do not rehire unless it's for something crazy (theft). All the rules about hiring are out the window


I think that it is permanent. If you really like Amazon, unless the job that you've got your way is super great, follow your gut and maybe err on the side of caution. Particularly if you don't have a ton of YOE under your belt.

Just remember there's a million presales jobs out there. I wouldn't stress too much if one company didn't want to rehire me.

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.

Hi Guys, I need some help. I had joined kpmg global services recently (7 months) back from one of the IT services companies in an advisory role however now I have received an offer from HCL with 40% hike to my current CTC. What should I do. I have heard that KGS gives decent hikes and bonus payouts however the work is completely backend with limited customer interaction and limited good quality. Can someone throw some light on HCL as well, what is good and what is bad and which to choose

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
