Curious if you all include your experience in your home country in your total years of experience? I spent 2 years at a WITCH firm in India before coming for a masters here, should I include that in my total YOE or do the companies only care about US experience?

YES! India, US or Mars add all the work exp. Recruiters anyway beef up the work exp requirements, why shouldn't we.

Absolutely include that

Ya you worked in an IT firm right, so what is the question? So many people add Internship experience.

I was reviewing some CVs and had an applicant include nanny experience, never understoodwhy they though that would matter. So definitely include your work experience outside of US, that is relevant.

PERMs for nannies are common. This is something I’d like to know if a potential client’s options are limited on the PERM front.

You should disclose all your experience. We (attorney and staff) will review that to see if anything can be used in support of the PERM case. Attorney will decided what to use and how much to use. Note that the more experience that is required, the higher the prevailing wage will come back. Good for you but some employers may not be willing to do that. Also, more experience required when not necessary looks bad, especially if not justified, and could lead to a PERM audit. The same idea generally applies to NIV statuses.

First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm. The majority of my experience has been working in private funds, financings, some M&A, and limited Real Estate work. I think I enjoy the idea of a few years in big law after law school to pay off loans (undergrad+law school), but am not sold b/c I have been remote since I started in January and rarely get to interact live with deal teams. How can I tell?

I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
