It feels so nice to be traveling internationally. Using the Batman for its intended purpose. Back at ORD United Club with a decent beer, then two months traversing Europe.

Can I enter the US when I have H1B change of employer petition approved but employed with my current company and serving notice period? Which company’s I-797 form do I show immigration? Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
I’m at 760 nights & 9 years as platinum at Marriott…but I was at 750 nights & 9 years last year (pretty sure? Maybe going crazy). Do you have to hit 10 years as plat within a 10yr time span? Or 10 years as plat at any point in your life?

Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?

Currently making base salary of 200k in NY, what would be an equivalent salary in Toronto to have the same lifestyle?
I had a 1st round interview last week and I didn’t love the sound of the job. It’s in higher ed. It would also be a 20k pay cut (105 -> 85). They want to do a final round with me this week. During the interview, the director who would be my manager said they are understaffed and very busy. She also said someone in this role needs to love working. I don’t necessarily want to transition to another busy place for a pay cut. The only perk I see is the time off university staff get and tuition...comt

I want to start on the chfc and cfp but the courses are 8k through American college. Is there a better alternative out there? I definitely think there's value in them but that's a bit steep for me
I interviewed for a role for another team within my organization and went on PTO for 2 days. When I came back my director told me I didn’t get the role but there were better plans for me in the near future. I found out from HR after that I did get the role but the organization decided to pause the offer waiting for another one in the near future. How would you react if your Director and company make a career choice for you without consulting with you?
