Finding work in a down market
As a result of an extended discussion in the H1B thread, I suggested that we start a new topic on brainstorming ideas for finding work in the current market. This includes job hunting tips as well as ideas for software products to develop or software services to offer., , The idea is to have everyone throw out as many ideas as possible with the intention that those who are out of work grab any useful ones and use them to get a job, get a contract with a user, or start developing a product to sell. Any of these are better than sitting by the phone waiting for it to ring!, , So, everyone, if you have any ideas that you are willing to share, please pitch them in now!

With our economy, do we still need H-1B?
With the downturn in the economy and so many people out of work, do we really still need the H-1B program? If the H-1B program is really intended to fill in the gaps, do we still have gaps? Kim Berry posted the following article discussing related issues:
  • Will Sep 29 'Black Monday' stem the call for more H-1b programmers?
  • What are your thoughts?

    I was watching an interview with Bill Gates this weekend on CNN and he essentially made the argument that bringing in H-1B developers is a way of importing talent. He made a good argument for that and made me think. I still think there should be a better way than the current H-1B program though. Did anyone else see the CNN Bill Gates interview?

    I just found out that last year after I was terminated for "Budgetary reasons" I was immediately replace with an H1b Worker.  I was a Paratransit Engineer for Outreach and Escort in San Jose California. On top of that one of my friends was part of the conspiracy as he is from Canada on a H1b Visa. It really is a shameful thing that they have done. We let them do it to us.

    H-1B Discussion
    The controversial [URL=http://www.prestwood.com/community/reference/H1-B_KB_Article.html]H1-B visa program[/URL] was increased by lobbying groups such as TechNet several years ago. An H1-B visa allows a foreign worker to temporarily take a position in the United States away from a U.S. citizen., , Does the shortage of talent still exist?, Is it time to abolish H1-B visas?, If not, is it time to lower the available H1-B visas to pre-1998 levels?, , [URL=http://www.prestwood.com/community/reference/H1-B_KB_Article.html]Read Full Article[/URL]
