if you can easily be mistaken for an international. Helps answer the "require sponsorship" inquiry since some companies will trash your resume if they assume you need a visa.

    FANGs don’t care. Rest of the companies don’t matter anyway

      Fang is for high flying stock companies. It’s has nothing to do with quality of life, work, or projects lol.

      Fang doesn’t mean shit.

      Pay is not subjective. $400k is real money

    It’s illegal to discriminate based on citizenship. You can just mention you are authorized to work for any employer.

    I think it’s better to say “authorized to work for any employers” unless the job you applied to requires citizenship (military, etc.)

    Doomed. Need a career reboot. Uber rescinded my offer. Previously wasted a lot of time and effort at Alexa voice shopping.

    Of course, if and only if you are a citizen, in case that wasn't obvious.

    If you want to get a job at Intel, just be sure to mark down "I am eligible for H1B". Sure-fire-hire. Don't let the weight of being a US citizen drag you down

    Will make you look desperate. Might work well for government jobs though.
