I don’t really know what to do. I somewhat enjoy doing commissions online, but i eventually want to move away from it to work on bigger projects. I don’t have the skills yet, so I have to be patient. However commissions alone aren’t enough for me to live on, and I just want a temp or part time job to help with the extra income. I have been having a hard time finding work, and I honestly feel like I have 0 skills. Portfolio wise, nothing I have is acceptable for looking for work.

I am a Senior People (HR) Business Partner working in NYC under an H-1B visa (9 years of experience). I am looking for something new, but I am finding it extremely difficult to find a company who would support an H-1B Change of Employer (COE). I either get declined immediately as part of the application process or get told the company does not support visa sponsorship for non-tech roles. Any tips, tricks, or great companies where an H-1B COE would not be an issue?

Is this legal? My spouses company just decided to change their comp structure for account managers. It was base + comm, now it’s commission only but nothing changed, OT commission is the same, didn’t get more points, just took away the base pay and said work harder basically. So now they have to worker harder to get $50k they were already making. (Not a decision based on employee performance, they’ve been crushing it. I think the company is just trying to save money they overspent else where)

I interviewed at a company last week. It was an hour long interview and the recruiter talked almost the entire time. Like the first 23 minutes, I didn’t even say a word. Not even an introduction. Then at the end, she spent another 20 minutes wrapping up. I got feedback from them today that they aren’t moving forward but I’m a little irked that I didn’t even get a chance to talk about past experiences or my resume or anything. I looked up the recruiter that interviewed me on LinkedIn.
