Laid off yesterday. Being a foreign talent, am I still able to find a gig here Stateside? Should I stay or find a gig back home before my work visa expires? I’m just a highly awarded copywriting CD.

Depending on the work visa it may have expired when your employment ended. Worth checking you still have the right to remain in the US.

One month left.

Reach out to a immigration attorney right away. There are some visa options that could potentially help you, but it will cost you some $$$

I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?
