Recently laid off and job searching right before my due date. Kind of scared because I am on interview 6 with a company so I feel an offer is near but I’m not sure how to negotiate delaying my start date. Anyone been in this situation or pushed for a later start date between 4-6 weeks at minimum? The job is remote so that helps me.
When it comes to layoffs do you think parents are considered safe because they have mouths to feed or it doesn’t matter?
The team I worked/traveled with for the past 5 years was laid off today. Seeing their Skype status show up as “presence unknown” just hit a nerve. 😢
My company got laid off recently and Iam looking for a new oppourtunity in Cyber security field.

I am looking for job openings based in Canada and US.
Any leads would be appreciated!!
I’m struggling to book an F2 visa appointment on the ustraveldocs website and would appreciate any advice.
I see appointments throughout India but when I select and click proceed, I get a “no ofc appointment available at this location” error. In this constant back and forth I’m ending up exceeding the number of checks I can do, thus potentially freezing my account for 72 hours”
Any idea on how/what the issue could be for ?
Should you tell the recruiter who placed you in the previous role, that you were laid off from the company they placed you in 1.5 years go.
(mar2021- aug 2022)
They are working with me on finding new roles for me now but they don't know I was let go.
I'm assuming they will think this as a reflection of my abilities and I might lose my only contact. ☹️
Please please advise.

I am not sure what to do. My company just had another round of massive layoffs. So far my job was spared. I do got a job offer from a different company but the salary is way lower than what I have now (20,000$ less). Should I choose for financially stability but with a lower salary, or take the risk, keep the higher salary, but have a high chance to loose it as the company isn’t doing great.

I am UI/UX Designer on first H1B and my new company is filing for H1B transfer and needs an experience letter from my previous company which laid me off on 8th Sept. The chairman is our family friend and told me to draft an experience letter which he will sign. I want to include job responsibilities in my experience letter but not sure whether they have to match the petition filed during my H1B as I worked both as a contractor for 2 years and full time for another 2 years after H1B was issued.

Fellow Recruiters! Any certifications you recommend that really pushed you to the next level? I’ve checked out CIR, PHR, etc., but they don’t seem to be quite what I’m looking for. I’ve been recruiting for 4.5 years and would like to find one that could bolster my resume as well as learn more Talent Advisor vs. Recruiter skills. Thanks for any insight!

Looking for advice on how to be less of a ‘yes woman.’ I’ve gotten feedback that I should be less quick to say yes or should feel comfortable pushing back on unreasonable requests, but I’m struggling with doing that in practice.
Wondering if there are any resources (coaching, book recommendations…?) that you have found helpful to retrain your frame of mind to be less of a people pleaser and feel more confident being direct or saying no. Any suggestions welcome!

Thoughts on POC and BIPOC? In my opinion, the POC's have a lot to gain from these grouping, but black people don't. In fact we tend to lose more.
Looking for companies that streamlined the hiring process. It shouldn't take more then 2 interviews and a month tops to complete the process from first contact to offer. Please list below. Thanks
How do you ask for a raise? If you exceed all expectations, and more? It’s been over 15 months?

New immigration order
H1B holders who have done a short term secondment (6 months) in another country (while still paid by the US firm), are you still required to pay U.S. tax? I know PR and citizens are taxed by Uncle Sam regardless of physical location, but wondering if the same applies for aliens
Hi everyone, my new employer filed a h1b transfer for me. However, after reviewing submitted packets, I found some error. Would these make an issue?
1. I-94 end date: they put 3 days later than the date on the document (I-94 is attached to the packet)
2. J-1: I was on J-1 4 years ago before coming as F-1 but they said N/A on the question if I ever had J-1. (Section 212(e) does not apply so technically no legal issue. They still attached my previous DS-2019 in the packet)
Hi fishes 👋 immigration firm is planning on sending my PERM application in next one month. My H1B maxes out in Oct 2024. I'm planning on changing jobs 6 months after my PERM approval so my priority date stays current, which would be around Aug 2023. Say the new company starts the new PERM process immediately, would I be eligible for H1B extension after max out?
Hi Fish! In need of advice. I am filling an H1b transfer out of EY, planning to leave mid March. Issue is that currently my dependent H4 extension (filed by EY) is pending approval (receipt notice 08/2020). My concern is if EY will drop the H4 application once I resign. Anyone had a similar experience doing h1b transfer while H4 extension was pending??
Anyone had gone to Canada from US recently for H1B stamping? What’s your experience? I am thinking about this option.

Hi Deloitte 🐠, got ITA for Canada express entry, any idea who is the best POC to get the employment reference letter? The generic one on ToD doesn’t include all the required details. Thanks in advance
Cuz it’s $$$
You just probably get that impression because more ppl on h1b post about wanting solutions and have a dire situation, we end up seeing the posts. Guilty of this myself as I posted being on h1b some multiple posts after being laid off
No, your mind is playing tricks on you
Of 3-4 people I saw here being laid off from D, all were on H1B.
I'm certain any large enough firm would make sure that the layoffa arent targeting POC or women disproportionately. Not sure about immigrants (i.e. on visa) because I'm not sure we have any protection under the US law. As long as the 2 factors above are controlled for
Not that I have seen any, but probably a pr disaster if firms do it
No not true . That would be a PR disaster for any firm ( either which way ). All firms get legal counsel before doing layoffs - I imagine this would be considered!
I don’t think they are doing it on purpose, but unconscious bias may be contributing to it
