Are H1B transfers still happening? If so, is there any indication of processing timelines?
I've received 2 offers to FAANG companies this year as Sr Product Mgr, got along brilliantly with the teams, but ultimately neither were willing to help process my visa in this climate. I know folks have it more rough, but feeling pretty bummed out.
Has any of you planning to downgrade from ed2 to eb3 with recent visa bulletin updates? Is your company paying for it and if not how much they are going to charge for it?

I got a notification that I was selected for H1B processing back around May or June, but haven’t heard anything else. Does anyone else on the same boat? No idea what is happening.
Have any of you been rejected after getting picked in the H1B lottery (and after being on RFE status) ? I just got a notification saying my H1B petition has been denied.
I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.

I recently read an article that talked about paying expenses like mortgage using a credit card (buy pre-paid Visa cards and then play using that) and is a way to get points and improve history. Has anyone tried this? If so, what is your experience?
Indian H1B folks - I had my H1B renewal in May 21. I want to travel to India, what’s the best way to get the visa stamped for return? Can I get the visa stamped in Canada?

Hello all. I have a total YoE of 3.5 years. I am currently working in PI. I want to exit the big 4 and enter industry. Any suggestions on exit opportunities would be highly appreciated.
Any finance transformation consultants had luck exiting to Tech/Fin-Tech? Have not had much success so far and I assume it's because I don't have the typical consulting experience posted here (strategy or implementation consulting). Been looking at CorpDev, Strategic Finance, and Product Finance roles. 7 YOE, no MBA.
New Yorkers -- would you ever consider a move to SF? I really don't think I could handle the culture there.
Ladies, How do you feel about dating someone with a child from a previous marriage? It's bothering me for some reason - I feel badly about it, I don't know why I feel this way. It just seems like such a special connection to have with someone and makes my connection with him seem less significant. Please no mean comments, I'm just being honest and wondering what other people's experiences are. TIA

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today.

Ahem - any ladies have tips and tricks for hair removal practices I came from a culture of waxing but that requires hair to fully grow + my hair grows pretty quickly so waiting for full growth for waxing is hard to work around (for legs, underarms, etc.). I tried shaving but my hair began showing in 1-2 days. In general though, not something my family struggles with in general, but I’m just hairier? I know this is a weird question, but looking for any tips and tricks!
I’m interviewing at a company next week that I have interviewed at before, but never got an offer. I’m planning on not bringing it up, but what do you do if one of the same people interviews you?
US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting
