ADVICE NEEDED: Got the leadership invite for lay-off convo with HR. (Wished they did not do it on a Sunday) Status: H1B QNS : -What are some things I should know before going into the convo with leadership? -What should my immediate next steps be as a visa holder and what are some things I should be aware of and should start thinking about ? Any advice is appreciated. Still can’t believe it and trying to process it all... Thanks all.
Folks hoping to get some input from your experiences and the immigration professionals in this bowl. My sister is working out of Chicago and GC recruitment campaign failed. Similar campaign passed in Denver office and she was included in that campaign and notified that she will have to move offices to Denver. At what point does she have to move? I140 stage or as soon as PERM is approved? Does she have to be there now? Appreciate your thoughts on this matter.
Looking to switch to a smaller firm. But the new employer wants me to sign a non-compete agreement, along with NDA and non-solicitation. I'm on H1b so that would severely restrict mobility. Can I
I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship. Is it just something that ATS doesn't screen for usually? I'd hope a human is actually reading my resume. I don't want to be that person that says "yes, it's on my resume" lol
This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?

Anyone who’s not a creative recently start at a US agency where they are sponsoring your work visa?

TIA
Thoughts on accepting multiple offers to mitigate H1B transfer denial? I feel terrible doing it for ethical reasons but I am considering it for practical purposes. Would appreciate honest opinions. TIA!
