I received a job offer about a month ago at a company that I was really excited about. Over the past month, however, we have been mired in working with the legal department over my visa transfer. Unfortunately, my undergrad and grad degrees don’t match my current position or my future career interests. My current company’s lawyer was able to argue in my favour because my current company is in the same field as my degrees, and I received visa sponsorship. Now I want to specialize in the area I’ve spent most of my time working on at my current company, but that is entirely unrelated to my education and is causing problems.
It took the company a month to figure out the fact that they didn’t want to move forward with my offer because of my visa, and they retracted the offer last night. Needless to say, I’m pretty bummed. I don’t know what the next couple of months will bring. This year’s been a roller coaster so far, and I would love to hit some peace and quiet for a while. Can’t believe how fast time’s flying by. Music is my constant crutch and companion, and I’ve renewed my sense of purpose over finding another position. Wish me luck, world.
