Tuesdays and Thursdays are the traditional days. I and 13 other men (all men) got a Monday morning 1-on-1 meeting notice pop up on the Friday afternoon before Fathers Day, so the (female) President could fire us all and install her lady friends. Nice touch, Celine.

I’m on the work visa and was just laid off from tax. I honestly hated the busy seasons in the last year and was so miserable bc I had to stay to keep my status so I can get my GC, which was the biggest goal for years. Never thought I would grow to dislike my job. So the lay-off is a blessing in disguise in a way! The funny thing is, jobs I’ve heard back so far that sponsor the visa are in PA...I think for my well-being I should just go home, or am I too big of a coward for giving up my goal?

Since graduating college 4.5 years ago I’ve worked at three marketing agencies averaging a year and two months at each. I took four months off earlier this year after a layoff to study data science. I’m now back in digital marketing on month six of my current job. How long should I stay at my current company? I’ve been told two years minimum which is unfortunate because if I leave in six months I’ll make a lot more money on the market.
