Currently on H1B. If I go back to school Fulltime MBA which takes 2 years, will H1B visa be placed on hold or will it expire? I have two years left

1. Without an approved i140, you have 6 years of H1B VISA. That’s it.

2. If you’ve already consumed 2, you’ve got 4 left.

3. When you finish your education, and assuming you find a job that sponsors immigrants, you’ll be reinstated and you’ll have 1 year on H1b before it has to be renewed for 3 more.

4. The benefit here is that when you’re hired, since you already have had H1b, you’re able to fully utilize your CPT (1 year) and then apply to reinstate H1b. Effectively giving you 7 years of possible employment in USA.

5. Green card situation is only going to get worse - not to disappoint you or anything - but it’s the truth. So, if you’re back on H1b (assuming you get a job which you will), don’t sit back and relax. Figure out what your options are.

Check if your MBA program is STEM. That buys extra time.

I was in a similar situation and unable to recapture the unused time. In my case, I was still on my first H1 and was able to get a second H1 for 3 years after MBA

Currently job hunting. I know a few retired C-level executives who tell me that they would hire me at the director level in pretty much any role (despite currently being an individual contributor) because I'm extremely driven, a life-long learner, a natural leader, and deeply educated in diverse fields (PhD in engineering and MBA in analytics). However, I can't seem to land a senior role. How do I convince an executive to take a gamble on me based on my past success and strong future potential?

Hi fishes,

I am a strategy consulting enthusiast from a middle class family. Don't have the financial stability to take a loan for an MBA and hence had to drop some renouned admits this year (Think top IIM's) due to family circumstances. I still dream big and request you to provide some insights for my research:-
1) Average expected package of an associate
2) Average experience expected at ZS to get hired at associate (not BCN)
3) Good books to upskill and ace the consulting case interviews
