Hi, considering moving to Australia, targeting strategy roles (ex MBB exp). Would I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa? Do you know of any successful cases? Otherwise, what are the ways to settle down and work in Australia? Got a EU passport. Cheers!
Fellow fishes, has anyone recently gone to India for H1B stamping and used Dropbox service. If you could please shed some light on the processing times and overall process that would be very helpful!
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Folks who are on a H1/L1 visa, how do you handle the income out of a rental property? Do you hire a property manager? How much would they charge approximately and is it worth it?
I’m looking for an agency in the Chicago area preferably but open to anywhere in the US who would sponsor my visa! Does anyone have any idea what agencies have sponsored in the past? Please help!
I have my H1b stamping in a few days. I suffer from anxiety and this interview is giving me so much anxiety and fear of being rejected or being stuck in a long processing. Contd...
Asking for a friend - are any firms open to sponsoring H1B for foreign lawyers looking to move into legal services/management consulting on the state-side?
There’s a company that I really want to work for in the future, is it possible to convince them I apply for my green card now and then join them once the EAD card comes in post-GC approval?
Has anyone here started a non-profit org/ been a board member of one, in USA on H1B? Pls DM w/ your suggestions including immigration attorneys I should talk to. Really want to setup one for a philanthropic cause but google searches call it out as unlikely.
Is there any consulting companies in the US that sponsor new hires (for example data science consultants) for a H1 visa or GC?
Hello fellow H1B folks! Question on i797 approval letter. Got my visa approved from company A. I need to delay my start date at company A. If company A does not withdraw its application, how long do I have on the newly approved petition to do the switch? Long story short when does the new petition cease being valid? I still have an existing valid visa / i797 for my current company.
Just curious, for those that have 1 yr OPT and at EY, PwC and KPMG, what do you do if you dont get selected in the h1b? I heard they dont allow day 1 cpt?
Is 2 Weeks notice mandatory? I'm in California and on H1b if it makes any difference. Can I give 1 week notice?
Anybody knows how to find recruiters that assist H1B candidates in finding jobs for non-tech related positions?
Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=. The caveat: can wait 1 yr where supply MIGHT catch up a little to flatten out this crazy market while interest rates still haven’t crept up to that 4-5% average. Ill have more buying power with prices POTENTIALLY decreasing and more money saved for down payment.can skip starter and go straight for forever home. Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr
Is networking still key as an experienced hire? Networking was really helpful when I was applying to consulting as a student, because of the clear recruitment cycle most firms followed. Now that I’m looking to switch to industry, I’m looking at specific roles / depts at specific companies. Companies often seem to want to fill these roles quickly so no time to network, and on networking calls people can’t help as much if you are targeting a specific dept. any thoughts?
Got interviewed in top companies through third party recruiters and now waiting for final decision & offer from all 3. But my goal is to get full time role which is hard due to my OPT status. Advice?
Hey y'all! I just accepted an offer with Microsoft in the FRP. Does anyone have any recommendations for progressing within the company and making the most of the opportunity? I've heard a lot of stories of how crazy the salary can get so I'm definitely interested in hearing about various experiences! Potentially pivoting into consulting/product management. I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!
Anyone work for Jabian? Thoughts on the company as a whole? Also what is the salary range for an experienced consultant?

Hi! If you pivoted to online teaching last year due to Covid and are now teaching in person, please consider completing my brief survey: https://drive.google.com/drive/mobile/my-drive?usp=forms_web
Deloitte 🐠 had my first round interview with the recruiter about a week back. She said she will get back to me with 2 days. Should I follow up now or it’s too soon.
When did you start introducing solids? Paediatrician said today we should start at 5-5.5 months. This feels early and there is no medical reason.
How is PTO taxed when you leave the firm?
I feel like I am so behind in my savings/finances. Senior 2, I have about $30K in liquid $/cash and $60K total (incl. investments, 401k etc.). I know I made conscious choices to live in my own apartment since graduating (in HCOL area) and lease a car (to be fair, no help from parents and couldn't afford to buy one), but I feel like I'm way behind in life. Anyone else constantly feel like everyone else has more $$?
Unlimited PTO isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
