Is anyone who switched to industry from consulting while on h1b willing to chat? Thanks in advance!
If I have a valid H1B stamp and am carrying my I-797 with me, do I need any other documents to enter the US back from India?
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
Indians back in India want H1B & H4-EAD to be abolished. Naturalized Indians don't want immigration. Where should a person with aspirations go? Is it bad to have goals and ambitions with an Indian PP?
I need advice for a green card?
It really is a shame that the US spends so much money training foreign students in our schools only to make it difficult for them to get a visa. My roommate just had to fly back to India.
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Thoughts on the house reconciliation bill? Especially the immigration texts.. do you guys think it would pass?
Absolutely hate consulting and been at it for 8 years. Decided to stay for various reasons - immigration, lack of good offers etc. But so glad that I didn’t take up any of those marginally better offers that were trying to shortchange me. Finally exiting to a opportunity that I always dreamt of. Takeaway: focus on what you really want and keep trying
My H1B extension is currently in progress and have received an RFE. I am planning to travel outside the country next week and I can’t return till I have my visa stamped. But will leaving...cont....
Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
What firms sponsor H1B
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
My Fiancé (Indian on H1b) is based out of New Jersey and I’m abroad. My fiancé’s Dad is always asking me what happened to your Job in US? Are you getting transfer? Etc. I feel so bad about this. How do I deal with this? I told my fiancé- he’s kinda brushing it off by saying I’m overthinking. Please help.
I was considering moving to Canada due to visa issues and realized how salaries are so much lower than the US? Plus I see the taxes are higher? So does Canada have a lower standard of living?
If my green card application is on Labor Market test stage, is it worth transferring to another company and starting the PERM process all over again? I’m not a Chinese or Indian citizen btw
Can a L1’s spouse (on L2) renew visa stamp by themselves (without going to the embassy with the spouse)? L1 is in the US but cannot travel to renew visa stamp for medical reasons
Has anyone been denied H1B after receiving a RFE? I just received one and uscis basically wants to know how my job is related to my education.
Friends. Anyone have parents/family travel from india to us recently? Any issues in getting through immigration? My parents are visiting for 6 months on b1/b2. Wondering whether to write letter to embassy or take any other precautionary steps.

I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you

Anyone ever use Hire a Helper for an out of state move? I have all my moving dates scheduled for this week, and they called me out of the blue to say they can’t find any unloaders in NYC that have enough insurance coverage that meet my building’s COI requirement of $5 million.
My three year old now doesn’t go to bed until around 9 pm (and gets up around 7/730 am which we prefer… don’t want to move that schedule). I used to squeeze in extra work from 8-930/10 but it’s no longer feasible. How do you manage? I see my options as… 1) find a job that is more 9-5 2) start waking up early to work in the morning (not a fan as I think sleep is very important) 3) trade nights with husband where every other night I work vs him while the other hangs with the kid after 8

Experienced hire/Senior Analyst leaving Accenture after a year. Moving to a position with a client for 2x salary and 20% more bonus. No MBA, no PMP just your typical veteran who is seasoned in GSD. Just wanted to share for the veteran dudes and dudettes. There are others out there who recognize what you are capable of. Don’t settle for what the LinkedIn talking heads tell you or recruiters who only recruited when they were in service.
