Friend just got some bad news, looking for referrals.

Apr 16, 2019 23 Comments

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.

    Your friend should come ask for himself

      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.

      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.
