Discover IT Chrome or Discover cash back student. Definitely worth it to try applying for it. They not only should be open to giving an account to someone without much credit, but if you pay your bills on time they were very quick to give generous credit line increases. Within a year or two of opening I went from 1500 credit line to 10000.

Great thanks I’ll check those out

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
