Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
Looking out for a job, on H1B, company just initiated GC though EB 2. Should I wait until the I140? Can anyone advise about the best way forward? What are the risks
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.
Current H1B expires on Aug-21 but extension has been approved till July-24. I haven’t gotten the new visa stamped as yet since most of embassies are shut and appointments are a mess! Is it safe to move jobs without stamping?

Looking at my project assignments like...
I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.
What are your thoughts on this article? I was confused by how an earnest request of how to deal with money matters turned into a "you are sexist and part of the problem" epithet.
