I filed my STEM OPT report late this year due to delays from the legal team and my intl advisor encouraged me to retain proofs in case I get in trouble filing for h1b or green card in the future. Is it appropriate to just screenshot the work emails + dates and send it to myself? What’s an ethical way of doing this?
As per h1b visa policy, I understand that we need to file an amendment everytime I need to perform work from clients location. But do we need to file an amendment if we are performing work from different state, city for few days when you are visiting friends? Have you got engagement managers approval in this cases? Also, do you then submit your timesheet from different location if you do or do not get the approval?
I am starting with PwC in the fall 2020 and just recent graduated as well, Jan 2020. Would I be able to enter the H1B lottery this April if I reach out to PwC?
Has anyone gone through the Green Card processing with PwC? The firm requires us to pay back the application fee (which from my understanding could be upto $10,000) if one resigns within two years...
Got my green card recently. I have always wanted to become a realtor have my own side business. Assuming no issues anymore right if I get my license and do this while still being employed with kpmg?
I am moving to NY in Jan 2022, but as someone on a temporary work visa I don't have a SSN yet, no credit score, and no US bank statements... Any tips on how I am meant to find an apartment? Surely if international uni students can do it I can find a way.. to add context I am on ~$80k base. TIA!
I have worked hard for my American green card, and by god, I am grateful for it. 🙏🐒🐒🐒🐒🐒🐒
Hi- I was curious to know if receiving 221(g) on approved H1B change of status applications is common. I’m previously an F1 and switched over to H1B recently. I have my appointment upcoming and was curious about the commonality of the occurrence.
Any one in this forum received a cancellation mail for B1/B2 visa appointments for late Jan/Feb 2022. Not sure what to expect, but the appointment is still active on the portal after 3 days receiving the mail. The mail seemed pretty generic but not sure whether the consulate will honor the appointment.

Does tour of duty with in same practice affect H1B status? I am up for H1B extension. Also, I will have to apply for a new job posting under advisory does that automatically require H1B transfer?
If it ever comes to that, would you give up your Indian citizenship to become a US citizen? Or would you just stop at the Green Card?
For people living in the US - do you invest in property in India - if yes, then how do arrange for loans in India or US? Also if I am on H1B can I get a loan in India?
Should I get a job offer before applying to day 1 CPT or apply for the visa first and then start looking for jobs?

I received my H-1B visa and will be traveling to U.S. for my first time in January 2022. Employer is asking for I-94 (given during entry) and SSN (need to apply when I arrive) before my moving date. Has anyone else encountered this problem and is there a workaround?
A friend of mine got out of UX Bootcamp not long ago. He spent a lot of his adult life training to become an illustrator wanting to work for games. Since he finished bootcamp, he can't find a job.. not even an internship. Any tips to help him get there?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Anyone start a consultancy on their own? How was it? Looking at my rate, partner pension definitely soaks up all the winnings (not complaining, we are paid well), but I’d like to be the captain of my own ship and take more of the earnings.
I was fired on Friday for performance issues. I am determined to improve in the future and am taking steps to do so. Any tips for finding a new job? I’m worried I’ll be blackballed now.
I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
Is it okay to ask to work remote occasionally ? (I’m talking once every couple months on a year long project).
Anyone made the jump from agency to freelance PM and can live to tell about it? I want the highs and the lows. I’ve been seriously considering it more and more, but need to know the truth about what to expect. More than anything, I want to be remote and be able to make my own schedule. Any pointers on how to get started? I’d love to do a budget exercise as well, to see how to make it all work—but I know it’s very unpredictable. Any tips/tricks are appreciated!

Worst CEOs you’ve ever worked with... I’ll go first, new CEO wanted us to drive his whole meeting with investors. He asked me for talking points so he could keep tabs on our team’s progress on key messages to investors 😂😂😂 I’m like dude, literally this is your ONE job, why would you outsource it to your advisors?
If you say something bad about someone applying for a job, that’s wrong. Unless they were blatantly insane or harmful. Let people try to find happiness. Happened to my friend and it’s sad.
Is it just me or is SPG really inconsistent with posting MAGC points? Feel like I always have to mention it fifty times, it doesn’t get posted, and I’m doing rounds with phone reps and the front desk
