H-1B Holder: Call it unexpected, however, a Google software engineer, who resigned to take a new job at Amazon, was let by the organization know that his job offer has been declined, only 3 days in front of his most memorable day at the web-based business monster.
Tianyi Gao stated that he was an SWE (software engineer) at the company when he shared his ordeal on LinkedIn.
“As a backup plan, I accepted an offer from Amazon because I received a support-check-in project from my manager. Sadly, just three weeks before my first day of work, after my resignation was accepted. I was informed that the Amazon offer had been withdrawn, Gao wrote.
“Neither did I revoke my resignation nor did I delay the process.” My last day at Google is today. He lamented, “I have only 60 days to find another job because I am on an H1-B visa.”
