Yes we do. It’s a database not a graveyard or file cabinet and truthfully, if there’s something special about your work or credentials you will be “flagged” to be remembered. It’s all about the quality of your work.

Recently had to Rollover my previous employers Roth 401k into separate IRAs (post tax and pretax employer match) with Fidelity which opened up my investment options.

I spoke with a recruiter recently about a position in her company and before we even began talking about the job, she asked if I needed an sponsorship, I told her no, I dont need one. But she continued to press on the subject until I had to tell her I was a US citizen. I dont know why, but the whole conversation made me extremely uncomfortable.
