Final thirty day period, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen reported the economic climate is “in a period of time of transition,” on the grounds that “we have a pretty solid labor market place. When you are developing virtually 400,000 employment a month, that is not a economic downturn.”
Currently, we figured out that the U.S. extra 528,000 new jobs previous month and the unemployment price has fallen to 3.5%, but for quite a few folks in tech, this is a difference with out a variance: according to layoffs.fyi, 467 startups have let go of 64,518 workforce so far in 2022.
Advertising and marketing simply cannot overcome anything that ails a corporation, but it is the best channel to make iterative alterations that develop quick benefits.

From NDA to LOI: What really happens when your startup is being acquired?
On Tuesday, VP and managing director of Dell Technologies Capital, Yair Snir, shared an article explaining, particularly since their odds of going public are so long.

How to approach building your first employee benefits package
When I worked at a startup located near a wall-climbing gym, a manager proudly announced that they’d negotiated a discount for our entire staff as a company perk.
But once it was explained that this benefit was only valuable to the employees who were already gym members, it seemed somewhat exclusionary. To restore parity, employees who declined a gym membership were offered ride-hailing credits.
“Founders need to ask themselves what really matters to their business, and which benefits best align with their cultural values,” says Anitra St. Hilaire, vice president of People at ThreeFlow.
Dear Sophie: How long am I required to stay at my current job after I get my green card?
I’m a software engineer currently on an H-1B. My employer sponsored me for an EB-2 green card, and my application has been approved, but I’m still waiting for a decision on my application to register for permanent residence.

If I should stick it out, how long should I stay with my current employer after I receive my green card?

Besides helping them make more money from selling to the U.S., a stronger dollar could encourage U.S. investors on the fence to invest across the pond, suggest Alex Wilhelm and Anna Heim in The Exchange.
