Try Marc Siegel in Chicago (Google him for office contact details). A friend used their services and recommended them. The initial consultation is free I think, so you can speak to them.

I’m currently on severance after being at a tech firm that cut the majority for their staff. I am in late stages hoping to receive an offer late this week. I am concerned about the hybrid working model. More so about moving cross country. I enjoy where I live, have a great network, and the place where the offer is has very little diversity and I know no one (and quite frankly have never been). Is there a way to negotiate hybrid? I know some of their team works remote.

Hey Gente, Im applying for jobs and I wanted to get others opinion on the race part of the application process. As an indigenous LatinX I worry that if I put indigenous it won’t tick the “diversity” box for the algorithm or recruiters.
