I was selected in the second round for H1B and was approved with an effective date of October 1. The law firm has not received the physical I797 and I’m very worried about using up my 60 days of unemployment. Does the 60 days of unemployment apply given that it’s an initial H1B?
Any experience applying for an I-539 to switch from an L1 to a tourist visa while still in the US? The embassy in my home country is closed for tourist visas so I’m worried once I leave I won’t be able to visit for years

Can you only apply to the Google APMM program if there is a position available at your home country’s office? Or can you apply anywhere? It says there is no visa sponsorship so I assume it’s the former but wanted to check. The program looks great. Fits my credentials and long-term goals. However, I’ve never seen an opening for the position at my home country’s office. Any APMM program members who faced the same issue? How did you overcome this? Happy to chat here or over DM.Google
I plan on traveling to Mexico for a vacation. I have an expired h1b visa based on an old h1b petition. My h1b was renewed after my last stamping so my valid h1b petition has a different petition number than that in my most recent visa stamp. Would this impact my eligibility for automatic visa revalidation?

I had my H1-B visa interview where the officer approved my visa and told me to expect stamped passport back in 2 business days. It’s been over 5 business days now and I haven’t heard back.

Any pointers on what I can do to get an update on passport?

Crossposting from Immigration Attorneys: I’ve been practicing for 4 years, but new to the immigration practice. I recently submitted an I-129 for 15 H-2B landscape workers. I knew the deadline to beat the cap count would be close, but I convinced the client that we could take the chance. Unfortunately, the cap count was reached after we submitted, so no approval. Is there any other avenue to bring over those workers or is he screwed?
I've been hearing a lot of RFEs for H1B renewal lately. Can someone who went through this explain what did USCIS want and were you successful in getting in resolved?

Anyone know of someone trying to break into BigLaw after failing the bar? I mentor a young woman who just found out she failed late last week. Her 1L grades were low (improved 2L yr) so missed out on OCI. She has a pretty good reason for failing the bar as she had a newborn baby in late June. Any advice? Do you think focusing on the bar then trying to get a job with a regional firm and lateraling is the only way? Or do you think she could get a job right out of gate? She wants to do corporate.

What are some of the challenges and benefits of pursuing an international career trajectory? As a young professional in the US, I have an interest in returning to China/SE Asia to work or study, and perhaps one day go to Europe.

Consulting is not my long term career
