Such a mixed feeling when you receive a contribution award from partners you worked with and you are leaving the firm in 2 weeks due to visa issue.

@P1 no idea yet. The firm doesn't really work with you (at least in my group) to find a position overseas. I had some contacts with the US firm passing on my resume but nothing has come through. Also did some cold calling, which is surprisingly the most effective way so far.

Your going back to India by any chance ?

Didn't you try one of those schools that give CPT from day 1?

Didn't want to take that route so no...

I'd be interested to learn why not .. I've always considered that a decent option

Is it easy to get a job in Canada after you've worked here ?

Well I don't know if working here counts but in general the Canada pr process is much easier .i believe they have some sort of points system and hey am sure the US experience helps it .

Thank you EY1! Do you have a burner I that I can send my resume to? Yeah I believe firms in UK are probably on a hiring freeze while trying to figure out the impact of Brexit. I've looked into Canada but it's all need based. If there's no suitable position, I doubt I could get them create a headcount for me (as an associate with one year experience)

@P1 I just feel like I'm forced to go back to school... I mean I understand it provides a workaround for me to stay here.

I would try OW in Singapore if you're headed to Asia, and especially if you're in FS. We have a HK office as well. Always looking for Mandarin speakers!

OW?

Thank you for the advice C1! I haven't really looked into positions at other firms but good to know that OW is in need of mandarin speakers.

@op fishbowl865@gmail.com

@EY just sent you my resume. Thanks a lot!

OP were you part of a forensics engagement that recently ended? Cause I got a contribution award as well just today.

@P2 Hmmm I don't think the engagement has ended yet but we could have worked on the same one lol.

Are you at a point in your career where you are ready to invest in yourself to shift what’s not working at work? I’m offering complimentary sessions to boss ladies you want to stop doubting themselves, asking for permission, seeking validation that drain your energy, joy and credibility. If you’ve tried all the things and you continue to buffer in place, it’s time to try something that will actually work. Quit the money story that says you should do it yourself. Comment yes below

Interviewing at Deloitte, and they’re saying for me to come in at a lower level at the most experienced level. After a year they would move me up to manager.
