No thanks. There was a long post a week or so ago. The tl;dr is that the vast majority of MBBers won’t blindly refer people. We expend social capital / personal credibility in doing so. I don’t know you from Adam so that’s a risk I won’t take. Also, I’d rather save my chips for strong candidates in my network

M1 that would be the way to go. I don't think bcg1 is saying you're not worthy, it's just a risk he/she doesn't want to/can't take

I have a valid h-1b visa with a stamp that will expire in 2021, is there any immigration issues I should be aware of if go home for a week as I have an emergency? I read carefully the EO and I don’t see any issues as my docs are valid. My boss notified HR that I’m leaving the country and they were asking me to avoid traveling but I have a valid visa so I don’t see the issue beside being very precious?

My h1b visa with current employer is valid till 2021 June after which I have a 3 year extension till 2024. My new employer has just transfered my h1b, but the approval is only until June 2023. Why am I losing a year now ? And do I still have to apply for an extension next year?

To all the veteran H1B holders: my friends OPT expires in February. She would be a first time H1B applicant so I’m guessing her H1b won’t go into effect until October (if she gets picked through the lottery). While she is waiting for the lottery / adjudication to take place, can she be in the United States or does she have to return to her home country?

Hi all! I am hoping to exit consulting after 7 years so I am currently updating my cv. Some recruiters recommend to build a skill based CV (with 2-3 bullets for each skill) for consultants rather than listing individual projects. Any thoughts?

Thoughts on exiting to a strategy role in a bank vs. staying on consulting? If it matters, I’ve had generally positive reviews over several years now. Not been enjoying the past 6 months but that’s possibly unrelated to consulting and just working from home.
