Desi fam... got laid off and last day is July 31. Looking for jobs now but any idea on the latest I have to do the H1 transfer by ? ( before it goes to the grace period). Thanks!

Just got benched, been completely billable till now, how long until I should be worried about potential layoffs? (Even though management is “committed” to not letting people go during covid)

PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!

How do you usually ask for PTO? I have the days accrued but I have PTSD from a past job about asking for time off. I’m wanting to take 5 days in June for a family trip and know I need to put in the request to the partners I work for sooner rather than later. I had to take a day this last week and they were great about it (immediate “Yeses”) but somehow, asking for a week feels like a hurdle. (Also, I’m only 7 months in, haven’t met the partners IRL, and we only really communicate via email)

I have been going to therapy for a while now and it made me realize for the first time that I didn’t know how to choose emotionally available friends. My therapist has helped me understand that my upbringing - emotionally unavailable parents made me to easily tolerate friends that aren’t available and rationalize it in a way that let me build up resentment overtime. In hindsight, I have met incredibly caring ppl that I have pushed away bc it almost felt too different than what I’m used to.
