Anyone tried immigration to Australia or Canada? I’m not sure what the process would be for a consultant with no family ties or local job offer.

NZ also is a great option. Very clear instructions on their website and they will correspond with you over email as well. (They are just closed right now due to Covid)

Search on google for Canada PR. Very well documented and straightforward process. Family ties/local job not needed for that.

Did the Canada PR all by myself - no lawyers nothing. Don’t need family ties for sure. It is easier if you have a job but that’s not a must have. Happy to help out / guide. DM me if you want to.

Age is a major factor for Canada. If you are close to 35, or older it will not be easy.

For Nepal it should be easy to get a US GC

I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship. Is it just something that ATS doesn't screen for usually? I'd hope a human is actually reading my resume. I don't want to be that person that says "yes, it's on my resume" lol

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.

And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people.
