Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?
Has anyone filed for H1B amendment and extension application together? Should I file together or file amendment separately from extension? Which is the better option ?
Does Deloitte let you write your own job description and pick the SOC Code that the application is filed with? My h1b application was denied last year and I am wondering if I can request them contd
After all the things happening in US how are you folks on H1B looking at Canada Express Entry? Are most of you giving IELTS? And hows the score been overall ? I know the cutoff is over 440 as of now..
Got my i140 approved last month and my initial 6 years of H1b will come to end in a year . I want to change job . So, want hear from you guys on what are few things that I should be aware of and did anyone change job post i140 ( less than 6 months )
I changed from opt to H1B last year in October. Do I need to update any portal or do anything?
I have a call with recruiter today. Do I bring up my immigration status (H1B) and the need for sponsorship during the initial phone screen?
Hi 🐠, if I’m leaving the country for 2 years and am currently on H1B. Still don’t have my stamps since approved. Should I get my stamps and keep track of my time spent outside of the US?
Does anyone know how long EY H1b transfers are taking under premium processing? I’ve been seeing some D folks saying it took 3 days??
Need advice: I recently graduated from an MBA program and will start with EY Parthenon soon. I have 42 months left on my H1B and I’m nervous about EY starting my GC process since they have paused PERM (they said they will start GC after a year but if they miss this window, I’ll be screwed). Should I be looking to change jobs soon (within the next six months) or stick it out with EY? TIA!
How is it that MBB don’t need H1B amendment for traveling projects but B4 do? Aren’t we doing similar jobs as far as visas are concerned? Also, why is B4 visa rejection rate so much higher than MBB?
International fishes in US: Do you need to file for a new LCA and H1B petition every time you get staffed in a new city. I feel like my projects will always wrap up by the time I get amended I797.
After filing adjustment of status are you pretty much clear to stay in the US until your visa number comes through?
Any dangers of quitting on H1B approval email/online status and not the physical notice? Manager pushing to put my 2 weeks in but lawyers are saying that sometimes online approval maybe incorrect
Hi. I have H1b valid until Nov 2018. Petition ammendment/extension filed and received RFE. If worst case scenario and it gets denied, can I apply / switch to L1a? If yes, what's the processing time?
Do I need a transit visa for Canada if I have a layover in Toronto Pearson on my way to India? I am an Indian citizen on H1B.
Hi! I am planning to move from Georgia to California (San Jose). Prior to signing a new lease in San Jose, I wanted to work with the immigration to file my the LCA for the work location change. They are asking me for the exact address and I haven’t narrowed down at this point. Can I temporarily give a friend’s address in the same area for my LCA? Or should I sign a lease with my name and then start the LCA process? Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!
I’m on F1 visa currently with OPT ending in May 2021. Thinking of going to India for a month in December and coming back in January. Is it advisable to go right now? Thinking strictly from a visa perspective.
For a friend- anyone with experience getting h1b with law degree (passed texas bar) do companies sponsor in that field?

Hey! I’m a self-contained teacher for grades K-2. This is my first year at the school I’m currently in, and apparently in the yearbook every year they have a class page solely for the handful of students in my classroom. They do this instead of putting my students in the yearbook page of the class they participate in for inclusion services. I feel like this is extremely wrong and violates some privacy laws. Do y’all have suggestions on how to bring this up with admin and the yearbook director?
Does your company's health plan cover infertility treatment? If so, what is the lifetime cap if any? My company just implemented a cap—admittedly we were lucky before—but this new cap of $30k only covers ~$6k in medical expenses (another ~$23k in prescriptions) which wouldn't even get us through one IVF cycle (extract/implant once).
I’ve been getting left out of or forgotten from a few meeting invites and links to imp. things such as remote shoot viewings. Today was the 5th time it happened this year. I know I shouldn’t think of it much, but it does bring me really down and makes me feel like I’m invisible + less capable than my partner. My white male creative partner has never been left out of one. It doesn’t help that I’m an introverted woman of color who is less vocal. Has this happened to you? How did you overcome it?
Does anyone have recruiter contacts in San Fran?

We just started using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System in our programs to measure quality of interactions and lesson plans. I think it's been one of the most meaningful tools for providing feedback to teachers.
What are some ways you all keep yourself busy and motivated outside of work? WFH life is starting to make me feel like my sole purpose is working :/ I do enjoy the job, I’m just starting to feel like I’m losing who I am outside of work

Help! 6.5 hr layover at EWR and it just got extended. Tell me your craziest travel stories!
Stay or go ? I'm at an early stage tech start up and gaining experience in an industry that I like. However, I am getting no formal training or sales coaching. Everything I've done so far (Inc. Targeted marketing and prospecting) has been self taught and I feel like I am lacking professional knowledge if I was to move onto a different company, especially considering that I am not involved in the full sales cycle.
I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
