i wonder what H1B options are available these days, might be interesting to go work in the us for a year or two while ive got no hard ties here yet

always seemed like amazon was the best way to go for foreigners wanting to work in usa tech

a suit is correct or at least not wrong unless you are interviewing at some weird west coast dudebro shop in which case rethink your job application entirely

i don't really like that? i don't feel like it's the right environment for me, but that's also the grand majority of companies looking to hire in boston

i have no idea how to get noticed by and hired at non-startup places and that's loving me up

Oh snap, I suddenly have an interview coming up for a QA gig.

The team seems really cool and talking to people on the team and others around them, theyíre big on actually giving a poo poo about work/life balance. Some people had to be on call over a holiday and the manager legitimately felt bad since heís been on teams before where thatís the norm, so theyíre changing procedures and how they scope things so that doesnít happen again.

Post your best advice for prepping for interviews as itís been a very long time since Iíve done one

make sure you can tell a little story about every line-item on your resume

i've decided to leave my job about a month from now, i'm the only person with the knowledge needed to field support requests after the other devs were laid off and the work shipped to elbonia, any suggestions how to break it to my boss who I'm on good terms with? :( (i don't expect to have an offer in hand)

based on multiple accounts, yes. I don't feel it was malicious, more of "we already got a lot of good candidates and you already have a strike against you being at a different office so v:geno:v".

exact phrase was "set your expectations properly" which is pretty good business-speak.

that's extremely strong gently caress-you language

The thing is I genuinely can't tell because i just got off of 2 months of disability (66% pay, untaxed so I have to pay that later) and that ate into the nonretirement reserves I had, plus Mint only can access 90 days on a new account

for a long while beforehand I was also sinking ~$650/mo in psychologist (and will be doing so again starting tomorrow :sigh:), probably ~$100/mo in doctor visits/office fees, my rent is $1500 and my car is $420 (nice). Typical takehome per biweekly check's just shy of 2k. dunno how any of that or my salary compares to averages in the vegas area

your car is far too expensive

wearing a suit to an interview is generally a massive fuckup because either you look like a dick, or youre interviewing somewhere where you have to wear a suit because of abstract arbitrary reasons which instantly makes it a garbage workplace

you can be goddamn sure that if your boss cares about how you dress they approach everything else in the workplace from the same petty and superficial place
