My partner (along with his team) has been laid off from an equity research role. He is on H1b visa and has until end of February to find a new job otherwise he’ll have to leave the country. I would be very grateful if someone knows of any sell-/buyside investment analyst opportunities and can refer, please. Years of experience: 9yrs. Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
I have been pursuing a job at a certain firm for over a year. They initially rejected me, but then offered me a job after I had already accepted and started at another firm. Well now I have been laid off and I reached back out to this firm. They called me 4 weeks ago and asked me a few questions, asked about my requested salary and mentioned a possible interview. Now it has been radio silence for 4 weeks. Should I just keep waiting?

Chris Krebs was fired at DHS today... very bad move and it’s gonna take a while for his replacement to gain the same trust and confidence within the cybersecurity community. January 20th can’t come soon enough.
Advice Needed: Last month I was laid off from work, however, since have been able to secure another position with another firm (located 90 minutes from my house in a more rural part of the state) doing real estate closings. Aside from the commute and the work (not incredibly fulfilling or challenging) the job is fine. I do consider myself incredibly fortunate to be employed during these challenging times. Do I aggressively continue my job search or wait until the beginning of the year?

Am I overlooking something or do most schools not ask about college internship experience?
Heya!!! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency. The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers. The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6. I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company. Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!

Does anyone know someone who was placed on a pip who then found a way to get on medical leave so could apply to jobs while still employed? (Idea being that you greatly extend your opportunity to look for jobs while still being able to say you’re at current firm. Example: Person gets 1 month pip, gets medical leave, then is able to look for new jobs for many months rather than 1 month. If you don’t know anyone, any opinions on how this could work?
