Friend just got some bad news, looking for referrals.

My friend was on an extension for contract work at JPM, but somehow he was told that tomorrow is his last day. He’s a great engineer.

Is there any way someone could help with a referral somewhere? I would greatly appreciate it, as would he. We’re trying every venue.

Thank you for any time you take to respond to this.

They’re SWE skill set.

Location: NYC, he can also relocate to CA, or NJ.

He has about 4 years of experience in Python and Java. He worked contract at Google and was employed at Accenture before as well.

      Yes. He would, and I’m sure he will. But it was a 24 hour notice, and he’s devastated. I’m trying to help him out.

    • Apparently Oath / Mgmt takes issues when people post on behalf of their friends. He/she provides zero answers on the topic.

      But hey, it’s a free world. People are free to choose between being helpful and being critical (and digressing from the topic)

    He worked at Google before and you seem to currently work at Google. Why not refer him yourself? Sounds like a no-brainer.

    If that doesn’t work out, why not have him go back as a contractor at Google? Better than being unemployed.

      He didn’t get in FTE, has to wait until July.

      Also, contracting just doesn’t work like that at Google man.

      What do you mean? I admit I’m not a contractor but I used to manage a small TVC (vendor) team so I’d like to believe I’m pretty familiar with the temp/vendor onboarding process. Former TVCs can easily come back assuming they did a great job last time.

      I didn’t know this. How does the process work though?

      Just contact your old manager, ask if there are currently any TVC openings. If your old manager wants you back, he/she can make arrangements with xWS or vendor solutions teams.
