Any good exiting opportunities for h1b holders?
I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.
Picking a country to live and work in: my spouse is a Mexican citizen (with US green card) who works in Mexico City, and I'm a US citizen. We want to live together, but my spouse has great career opportunities in tech in MC, and finding a job in the US has been hard. I could likely get a job in MC, but I don't speak Spanish and my income would be much lower. How should we handle the decision of who moves where? We are both looking for tech jobs in the bay area, but we haven't had much success.

EY fish, i-140 approved but I haven't completed my 180 days yet. Got extension for 3 years (completed 6 years on H1b). Will EY revoke the GC petition if I decide to join EY in my home country?
How are fellow H1B holders doing these days on job market? I’ve been rejected from 3 out of 5 roles (tech companies, met minimum requirement) and started to wonder if its my experience or visa status
Has anyone heard about new labor instructions which are causing green card delays because entire recruitment process needs to be redone?
I am on OPT, with 2 years left. I work for Company A right now, and I am happy with them. Company B applied for my H1b this year and I was selected. They are processing the H1b, but I don’t wanna work there. Can I take the approved H1b to Company A and continue there, without ever working for Company B? Can I work for Company B once the H1b is approved and not got to Company A at all?
Has anyone filed green card under EB1 extraordinary researcher category? How was your experience? Could you please share your profile details like research field, citations etc? Looking to file in EB1
Any suggestions on which country to get a new H1B stamp? My current visa will be expired next month. I have a plan to travel to Germany next spring. My home country is on the other side of the world with quarantine still takes place for all visitors. My employer won’t allow working from outside the US during quarantine otherwise I’d fly back home to get the stamp. Just wanted to make sure that I can get a new one on time.
Can H1B approved under consular processing but yet to be activated be transferred to another employer and can the new employer apply for transfer and change of status?
Anyone heard or experienced traveling to and from India from the US on Qatar Airways? Have been seeing online that certain people (such as B1/B2 visa holders) weren’t allowed to board the flight from India. FYI I’ve a stamped H1B visa. Any inputs are appreciated.
Does anyone know, what is the real difference in terms of immigration status after you get EAD ? Can you leave jobs and work for any employer (tech / non-tech / etc.) without a need for sponsorship if that is the case how is that different from GC ? And if i still need sponsorship, how is it different from H1B ? Trying to figure out if it makes sense to move to new employer in the middle of pending EAD application.
For a friend- anyone with experience getting h1b with law degree (passed texas bar) do companies sponsor in that field?
I had 2 (A,B) offers with both H1b transfers approved. I joined employer A in aug . I don’t particularly like the employerA . Can I join employerB with the approved petition? Or the employer B have to reapply H1b transfer?
Anyone switched jobs on H1B in the past month or so? How long did the approval take from USCIS for the transfer? Thanks in advance!
Which UK firms would you recommend who will sponsor a general tier 2 work visa and bring you from USA to UK during this pandemic? Want to understand if it is worth spending time doing job hunt for this kind of a move. Thanks!
Just sharing a story. Thanks to months of therapy I have finally become brave enough to quit in May, when my current project is over.
For those of you who are successful in your interview process and landed on an offer, did you feel like you ace every question they asked in in the interview and articulate perfectly? I’m a bit nervous now Bc I felt like I could have spoken better 😭😭😭😭
Indian H1B folks - I had my H1B renewal in May 21. I want to travel to India, what’s the best way to get the visa stamped for return? Can I get the visa stamped in Canada? Or book an appointment with Mumbai consulate right now? Any specific documents required and tips for getting appointments? TIA 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Thoughts on working remote 75% as an analyst?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
Interviewing with Splunk. Anyone have insight into the company culture and whether this is a good exit opp with just under 3 years of experience?
About to receive Google Level 5 and Facebook Level 5 offers - Product Strategy / Biz Strategy - anyone have any insights on what compensation I can target? Thank you.
Got an offer with 20% hike and real good stock options @okta. No joining bonus though, the stocks make up for it. Worth switching?
Advice question: I am having a home maintenance issue that’s affecting my sleep (something with our pipes or something in the ceiling that’s causing a lot of noise at night, totally sucks). In addition to being a tired monster, I have been watching myself on Zoom and my eyes are super puffy and have giant bags under them. Have allergy- and acne-prone skin so have never worn much makeup - any advice on what I could try? Thanks so much 🙏
What was your utilization like after taking parental leave? About to take a couple months and I’m curious how much it will impact my year end utilization % (not that this will impact how long I take off).EY
If you had an opportunity to name your salary and set your billable hours, what would be the ideal ratio per month? Say for example your hourly rate is 400.
Can anyone comment on the differences/perks from moving as an ADA/AAG to an AUSA? Did you notice any differences besides the pay and benefits?
It’s interesting to see a lot of sales people want to learn about OTEs but nobody asks about quotas related to OTEs. Most companies make OTEs look attractive and then demand massive quotas and only 20-30% of people hit goals. I’m curious to learn about marketplace commission rates. What’s your quota target? What’s your commission % paid on every dollar up to 100% ? And what’s offered in accelerators above 100%?
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
