Many people on my team have. Just keep doing all the multiple choice and you will be fine. That is the advice I continue to hear

Forgive me - read this as cfe!

Planning out my promotion within my current firm. Can I switch jobs once I receive my EAD or can I switch once I-485 is pending >180 days without restarting PERM?

Alternatively, can I switch just with I-140 approval? Does the role have to be >50% similarity to be under AC21 portability?

Feeling really stuck in my job… part of it is a toxic work culture that’s dragging me down but in the end I don’t think it’s what I want to do (associate buyer in the retail world).

Outside of work, I coach and am a director for youth and high school sports. It doesn’t make enough to cover expenses full time but it’s my true passion.

Anyone have advice or careers where they feel work life balance/flexible work schedule works with coaching?

Hi Fishes,
I'm currently working for a fintech firm as SQL Developer which has got me into a toxic working culture(zero support from colleges) with no learnings so far.

Although, I'm from a Commerce domain..I wanted to move into Data Analytics so I learned SQL and Tableau on my own to get myself better Data Analytic job opportunities to build my career in.

However, without any live projects and hands on experience on the tool, I could only learn a few things about these two mentioned tools. So

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
