Which career pathway to take, if I reside in BC (Canada)
1) Clinical Psychologist
2) RCIC (Immigration Consultant/ Lawyer)
I’m open to pros and cons or any insights if you work in either of those industries?
Thank you in advance ☺️
Do I need to fill out any immigration form etc if I’m changing my home address while on H1B? Work location stays the same - just shifting to a different apartment complex in the area.
I have a valid H1b till 2025. Super demotivated at my current job and applied for COS from H1b to H4. At what point can I leave my job. I still have not received any receipt from USCIS.
Can anyone who works in FAANG or similar companies tell me more about the creative/technological freedom there?
I mean I have heard that they allow you to enlist in any project in any technology that interests you and even lets you start new projects if it is approved by management. How far is this true?

Hello There, I am looking for referrals/ job opportunities as a Software Development Engineer. I have 18 months of experience as a Backend developer. Currently on H1B
I know a lot of them are resigning but H1B folks at Twitter would have just opted to say YES to Musk’s latest quirks and whims? Can’t imagine how to react if I’m put through such a situation.
what is the easiest job that can guarantee u to get a job offer from an employer that specializes in sponsoring foreign workers to get an h1b visa
Anyone with insights on the corporate strategy and other strategy-oriented roles at Visa Inc. in terms of wlb, growth opportunities, comp. etc. How does it compare to Stripe, Square, etc.? Visa
Just received my H1B RFE denial notice today.
How soon do I have to leave the country? The last visa I had was an F-1 and that expired on August 8th this year, so I was on Cap-Gap. I-94 says D/S
I’m pending an offer from Visa Inc for a Senior Director role and want to know some guardrails. The recruiter informed me in our very first call that Visa “doesn’t pay cash to bring people on” and alluded to not offering a sign on bonus or RSUs. This is very strange to be competitive in the tech world. Would love to hear input into pushing for both equity and sign on as part of the offer. Thanks!
Got picked for h1b lottery but just realised I forgot to submit my official transcripts.. will it be an issue when they process my h1b?
I am new here and new to the process as well, I have an experience letter with roles & responsibilities but there is no contact detail on the letter (Phone number or email-address). I asked them to add the phone number & email address of the HR on the letter but they refused to do so. Can someone help me? Cant put the whole thing here because of word limit. Kindly give this link a view and share your opinion.
With all virtual work now, the outsourcing is skyrocketing. Any recent experiences to share?
Hiring best & smart foreign talent is also increasingly hard with all the uncertainty & hard stance on immigration by current administration. Companies will fall behind on innovation.
Do we need to take a passport picture for visa interview in India...? I have the OFC interview tomorrow and the online site says that they will take a digital pic on-site. Notsure if we need to carry a passport size photo.
Does anyone know how Salesforce helps during h1b transfer process? Got a rfe and I am wondering how Salesforce supports you in case your transfer gets denied.

I have insomnia and am bored so, story time. My first creative “partner” in my college portfolio class was so awful and controlling to work with. It came to the point where I was so anxious, I dropped the class 3 weeks in. Two years and a finished portfolio later, I am proud to say that I get to write copy with an amazing creative team. Today the “partner” now works in account management. I feel like I won? My anxiety has improved so much since then, If anything I want to highlight that.
I have been interviewing for a role and finished the second round. However after running some numbers I don’t think it will pay enough. There is another role the company posted I’m interested in but not sure I’m the most qualified yet (could get some certifications and probably qualify more). How do I not piss off the company if I say I don’t know if I can take this role but I’d be interested in the other role? Or, could I take the role I interviewed for with plans to pivot into the other role?

What to do if a person has provided an employer with a fake social security card and is marrying a USC? Unauthorized work isn't a bar for immediate relatives, and they didn't present themselves as a USC for a benefit under the Act, so AOS as usual is my thinking. Am I right?
Hi, I belong to the corporate bowl but I have snuck in to ask if anyone would be interested in assisting the Ukranian Crisis Legal Aid organisation that has been set up by a Hungarian law firm to pair up refugees and lawyers. The website is https://ukrainelegalaid.org and it was set up by KNP LAW Nagy Koppany Lencs & Partners (who I am not affiliated with). This is all pro bono. Feel free to PM me, especially if you are English qualified!

Hi there! What’s the best way for a Dreamer to get their citizenship? I’ve renewed my AB 540 multiple times and would like to get the ball rolling on my citizenship. The Biden Admin talked about providing a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers but because of the pandemic, they decided it wasn’t an important enough issue to discuss.
BAL and Fragomen associates, has their been any effort to push associate salaries up? If not, what is their excuse?
It seem like the two biggest immigration firms are severely lagging behind in compensation while other larger firms with immigration practices are pushing up comp.
BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?
Hi there! Hoping to go to law school for immigration law next Fall.

Hi. After an H1B petition is withdrawn, who receives the notice of revocation? Beneficiary or petitioner? And if the beneficiary has another approved I-797 and the notice of revocation is not received by them, does that cause issues at the border at the time of re-entry?
Fragomen and BAL updated their NY job posting to be in compliance with NY’s salary law. Is anyone else immensely frustrated by the low salaries in immigration? I like the work, but the comp can suck
Urgent question, if anyone knows the answer. I found out a petition I filed is being rejected due to incorrect filing fee, but I haven’t received the rejection package yet. Do I need to wait to receive the rejection notice to send everything back with it, or can I just refile a new petition asap? Really praying I can do the latter…
Looking for insight on business immigration firms in LA. I worked as a judicial clerk/staff attorney at the immigration court and occasionally handles decisions involving employment-based immigration, non immigrant visas, and waivers.
