I just read about someone in San Fernando who killed his family and himself because he didn't have a job.

Please reach out to your friends in times of difficulty....the world is not going to end if you don't have a job OR if you there are delays in getting your GC..the world is a wonderful place and still full of opportunity - to add value, to help others etc...you may need to reach out to your friends for help to find your calling or the next opportunity....please don't be desperate....and please ask for help. we all have so many things to be happy and thankful for...

Cheers!!

I totally agree with you...recently I moved to CA and it took me close to 2 months before I had 3 offers...I can see it can be frustating, distracting but keep +ve and it will be rewaded.

Not sure what you mean by 2 months before I had 3 offers??

if you are talking about jobs, then all you need is one!!

this category is to deal with starting and doing business in USA... no place in the first place to cry and vent depression of your brain and your friends brains... though annoyed with it, i respect your post and respectfully ask you to take it elsewhere... i wont respond to flame from you...

Totally agree.
Another night my wife was worried. I told her that I am still young :). When the worst happens, I can still work in a Chinese restaurant, and put the food on the table for the kids.

I see nothing wrong with this topic at this website. We had a lot of pressure on GC. The bad economy just made our life worse. We need some high spirit.

And the title clearly indicates that it is not about any specific immigration issue. People don't have to click when not interested.

not website... just the category... thanks for your opinion...

also, title leaves the possibility that the content talks about a creative new business idea... or some creative twist in interpretation of law...

Recently I got laid off and I worried on how long it would take me to find a job, Here is my situation:-

* I have a green card
* Severance package I received is 7 months
* Skills - MS computer science, 6 years full time experience in financial industry. SQL server 2000, C# (mid level programmer), solid communication skills
* I live in New York, open to find a job in tri state area (or ideally would like to move to bay area)
* I have two kids, Wife is not working
* My salary expectations - 110k+

Any suggestions on how to get motivated ? Every where news is really bad and there are only few openings - what are best ways to explore the opening's ? please let me know your job search experience

Thanks

Try to update your skills to the latest versions i.e SQL 2005 or SQL 2008. Try to find a job that gives a decent salary during this difficult economic times, don't have hight expected salary. I don't know your financial commitements just a suggestion. Try to contact few head hunters. Also try to join Linkedin and it is a good professional website. Some times I used to get calls through linkedin. If you are good at SQL Server you might even try as SQL developer and I think there are still few requirements in LA and southern california for sql developers. Try to upload your resume in monster, DICE or both. I am working as contractor since 2001 in USA and I always apply through Dice or Monster because my employer is not good in finding good projects as well as they won't always tell you the truth with regards to the billing rate. Always Have hope in life and this is just a temproary set back.
