Sai Krupa in Getting My Job – Devotee from USA

Sai Devotee from USA says: Hello Sai Devotees I am writing my experience  here which has been long due. 

In Feb 2012, I got a consulting position for 1 yr in a good company by His grace and blessings. Then it was extended for 6 more months after which there would not be an extension, which was the company policy. My contract was to get over in Aug ’12. At that time, I was on H1B visa, so I had to make sure that I was continuously working. I was planning to look for new positions in June/July that year. But inwardly, I wished to continue in the same place that I was working since the environment was good and I was used to the work there. The only way to continue there was possible if I were offered a permanent position, but there was no talk of it. I was a bit dejected. Luckily, in Apr ’12, my husband’s EAD got approved and I too converted to EAD. My job hunt continued in the meantime. One thing that I want to mention here is that the company that I was working for did not do sponsorship, so getting EAD at the right time was helpful. 

I attended a couple of interviews and got selected for one. That made me feels quite safe. Now, look at Baba’s play. He made the current company offer me a full time position and I was so elated because there would not be any visa issues since I had EAD and it was also what I wanted. The interview process was very easy but the background checks took a while. Though I got the offer, I still had doubts and negative thoughts assail me. I used to think, what if this doesn’t go through? What if an issue comes up? Thinking this way, I did not give up the other consulting offer that I got since I wanted to keep it in case something wrong happened with my permanent job process. So I gave my 2 week notice in the current company and was schedule to join the new position after my notice period. All this time, in the back of my mind I kept thinking that how nice it would be if all the formalities for the permanent position got completed before my notice period. That way, I don’t have to go to the new company. In the meantime, I had a change of mind and decided to stick with the current one, no matter how long it took and so I rejected the new offer with the other company which was for a consulting position. In those few weeks, I was a bit apprehensive but ultimately, by Baba’s grace, everything went well and I finally joined in the 2nd week of Sep ’12.
