Brain freeze…

I am back, but…

with a major brain freeze!

I know I am supposed to be back in the blogging world with a “BANG” and many travelogue posts. Unfortunately, I am hit with a bug. A very dangerous and undead bug which is referred to as –  “H1B sponsorship” bug. I am looking for help, advice, guidance and light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a turbulent time. We are planning to move out from US if economical and, naturally, employment scenes are not showing any more signs of improvement. I am in dire need of a H1B sponsorship from any company in any part of US. If there aren’t any opportunities, we are thinking of packing our bags and moving out of US by end of next year. Period.

Besides job searching, I have many ideas in the workings already. Self employment is one of them. In what? To be truthful, I am still in negotiations back and forth and I can’t reveal any more. But I am very indecisive at the moment, and hoping for more suggestions, advice and moral support from my blog friends. I guess, it’s trying times for all of us.

Self-Employment – The Best.
But in what ?
Turn a hobby into full-time job. Yes, initially one has to invest on his/her own but 2-3 years hardwork and that will be running business. And who knows may be you will start employing others.
Goodluck !

Some times, recession becomes an advantage. We would be more willing to try out incredible things which have a higher rate of failure. We can always blame it on the recession, if it doesn’t work out. But if it does….. So, just take a any bold decision about which you are passionate right now. NOW is the time.

Don’t worry. We all know that this is a tough time. But as always, this too shall pass… 😀

A post after so long…

Best of luck… and I have heard that there are some firms who will sponsor your H1B for a sum, but I do not know if that is what you are looking for.

It’s good to hear from you, but sorry things are in such flux. Don’t know what else to say, but here’s some {{{moral support!}}} Take care!

Maybe its time to take up a hobby as a profession.
