Suma got a new job as a Software Developer in the middle of the pandemic and on a visa!

In her own words:

“I was let go by my former employer unfairly in middle of the pandemic. It was very difficult for me being on a visa and not having a job. I finally started a new job exactly one month ago as a full time Software Developer with a company that has never hired anyone on a visa. They are also willing to sponsor in the future which is awesome. It feels good to finally be employed and earn again.

It is definitely a hard time and being on a visa is even more difficult. I have learnt a lot of tips and tricks during this job search and would love to guide anyone in the same situation. I would love to give back in any way possible. :)”
