I am on h1b and only have 60 days to find a job. Need help. I am a software engineer. I am devastated and completely lost all hope.

    First, I was not aware that H1B guys have 60 days to find job in the US. This is new knowledge for me. I was under the impression that we go out of status immediately if we are laid off.

    Second, ask your company to keep you on the payroll for the period which your severance package can cover.

    Sorry to hear. You should still put this into perspective. If you can’t find a job, you will just go back to India or China and find opportunities there. Unless you are from Afghanistan or a African country, there might be opportunities in your home country and it may be a blessing in disguise

    Sorry you are in this situation. Layoffs happen for a business need. Don’t take it personally. Chin up and move on. First negotiate to replace upfront severance for employment for the same number of months. Explain your situation to your manager or HR. That will give you time to interview.

    If you are confident about your software engineering skills, just go out there and get yourself a new job. DM your CV to me if u want to consider Walmart Labs
