I was laid off by my company in Nov 2021 after getting my green card approved in Sept 2021. I just got a new job and planning to go back to my home country for a long overdue visit. Will CBP give me a hard time for re-entry when i get back to the States?

Why would they give you a hard time?

Will the visit be under 6 months?

Thank you!!!!

Any value to the CAIA?


So we are a remote-first company. We’re working on this new concept for a virtual Sales breakfast where the team can all get together first thing In the am to welcome our new hires. We wanted to send everyone a DoorDash gift card so that could order breakfast/coffee and we treat it kinda like a happy hour. The problem is that we have folks in the US AND Canada. Apparently, if you live in the US you can’t buy DoorDash gift cards for Canada. Does anyone suggestions for a workaround?

Have seen quite a few people move from direct PE to co-investment or secondaries firms because it is less in the weeds and you can evaluate deals faster. I recently moved from strategy consulting to AM (primaries, secondaries and co-investments) with the intention of trying to go direct PE. I’m now debating whether I continue to get deal experience in my current role so I can eventually pursue direct PE or if I should look into firms who exclusively do co-investments or secondaries.
