“Commenting for better reach. Please do not get disheartened. I know that you are a highly talented and self-motivated person. These are definitely challenging times, and I am 100% sure that you will emerge victorious out of this to post a message very soon here on LinkedIn about the story of your triumphant journey out of this mess and distress. Wishing you all success,” wrote a LinkedIn user.

“Commenting for reach, I feel for all visa holders dealing with this (even while I myself am looking for work). Having that additional burden must be terrible. Feel free to connect, and if I have contacts at any company you want to apply for, let me know,” added another.

“I personally feel sad to hear this from you. I can understand how tough it is for an international student to study, work in another country, and manage all expenses! I understand your situation. You will find a better workplace based on your merit and hard work. God has surely planned a better option for you! Do not worry!” joined a third.

About Tesla layoffs:

The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, issued an internal notice to the employees about laying off 10% of the workforce globally to revamp the organisational structure and cut costs due to decreasing sales of cars.
