My h1b got approved this year in Consular processing and with all the uncertainty I am planning to change it to a COS instead. Anyone applied for a change to Change of Status from Consular processing. How much time does the process of changing to COS usually take? Potential RFE etc?
If you’ve been on a project with a major airline (Delta, United, American), did you get free personal travel perks?
Good questions to ask in an interview? I’m rusty
Does anyone have suggestions for how to negotiate a severance? I was laid off with zero warning after being told my job was secure. They blindsided me. They’re also trying to get me to sign the NDA ASAP so we can “leave on good terms”. They made sure to draw my attention to the non disparagement clause. I have 21 days to sign, so not sure what that means from a risk factor situation for them. I asked for additional comp and health insurance. They came back with slightly better package.
If you got 15k in sign on bonus and want to treat yourself with something luxurious/nice what would you get? thinking about something for the house/kitchen or something comfortable but cute for the WFH lifestyle.
I'm a new hire and have no idea what to wear for the office holiday party. Any (serious) thoughts?
Just got an interview for an in-house job at FAANG, but I recently accepted another job offer already. If I turn down this interview, will I ruin my chances later?
There will always be someone making more than you or less than you. At a younger age or older age. So go at your own pace, life isn't a sprint. Salary/comp included.
Has anyone moved cities mid-project? And was originally picked for project because they were local? Was extended long term, but planned to move within the next year for family. Wondering if doable?
Is 210 enough to live an upper middle class life in Dallas? Not trying to come off as shallow just genuinely trying to understand. Have a $300K offer in NJ and $210k offer in Dallas (single income, small family) and want to make sure I’m able to give my family a great life. Dallas seems like amazing place to raise a kid, but it’s also not as cheap as everyone seems to think. The houses we want are $650-$700K range. Insight appreciated
Has anyone taken lessons at GolfTEC or a golf store (golf galaxy, pga superstore)? I typically play in the mid 80s but can’t get into the 70s. Looking for lessons to improve and get a little more consistent.
How to take advantage of per diem budget? eg, Amazon gift cards from Cvs, Starbucks gift cards etc. Also is it allowed and these transactions be tracked by the firm?
A recruiter made a post about emailing her for an open position, so two days ago I reached out. Should I also apply for it on the site, or would that be overkill?
I’m in consulting because in my undergrad business school culture it was either finance (non corporate) or consulting. Industry was seen as failure. I never gave it second thought. Anyone else?
