Is he open to T2/T3 cities and perhaps smaller firms? Could he get experience there then recruit again once he has something on the resume?

Yeah, he’s pretty much open to anything right now. But honestly just struggling to opportunities that essentially require no experience. He’s aged out of eligibility for most internships since he graduated this fall. He’s just taking extra classes for his last year of eligibility on the team

I am wholly convinced that the best person to lead our country right now is Former Secretary Condoleeza Rice She has a deep understanding of diplomatic and military power, and has a solid academic understanding of economic policy; an amazing background to become president: growing up in the segregated south to now a more liberal California She has always struck the right tone with opposition, taking a measured response to both Trump and Obama policies Overall moderate views Thoughts?

I’m actually a bit proud of how we as a country are handling these last few days of chaos. The tradition of democracy runs deep and our institutions have been able to continue moving forward even when placed under direct assault. As an immigrant I don’t think this outcome could be possible anywhere else in the world.
