This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?

I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out?

I'm an O1 visa applicant and already have a sponsor. Is there anyone here who can help connect me with NYC agencies? Currently a Creative Director at Leo Burnett in Mumbai.

I’m not seeking agencies to sponsor me, just for them to sign a letter expressing interest in working with me. I can DM you my book, thank you so much!

I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.
