From Layoff To Liftoff As An Immigrant - By Rashmi Kishore (Senior Intuit/Netflix SWE)

In August 2022, Silicon Valley engineer Rashmi Kishore was hit with something too many of us are unfortunately familiar with: Layoffs. She lost her job at Netflix and was immediately put under time pressure to find new employment as she was on a visa.

Rashmi was able to overcome the odds, and she's now at Intuit. In this session, she talked about:

  • Quickly picking up the interview game again to land an offer
  • Managing the stress of the layoff atmosphere and immigration issues
  • Handling the logistics of being on a visa in the US
