As an immigrant it’s so difficult to find work that you actually love. Growing up my parents taught me to value money and not my work. This country does the same. I’ve been meaning to find work in legal field so I can work as a paralegal. But it’s so difficult to find a firm who would sponsor my visa too. It’s been a struggle lately to survive. I would love for some insight from my fellow law colleagues if you have any tips I should pursue or any one I should approach to find a job.
Anyone have experience working for Visa?
Has anyone on H1B here been laid off and found a job within the 60 day graces period? If so, what was your strategy?
Are we able to work out of US with H1b visa? I am planning to apply for global rotation program so I am wondering.
What firms sponsor H1B
I accepted an offer and employer started H1b processing, now I have another offer giving me around 10% more from earlier offer. Should I asked for equalization or is it something unethical? Appreciate your responses.
I need to get my first H1b stamping (COS: F1 to H1). Is it risky if I go to Canada for stamping? I have done my masters in the US and have work experience in the US. Also, can any one recommend which consulate in Canada is pretty chill with visa interviews?
How to get a summer internship in the US in investment banking, as a european citizen? are there any websites to apply as foreigners? is it hard to find smth due to visa issues etc?
Is your rank / service line important for H1B specialty occupation? (Ie. Do consultants have higher chance of approval than auditors?
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Cleared first round and my on-site is next week. It just came to my notice something about visa sponsorship in JD. It states “This role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.” I have H1B but I would need H1b transfer and GC sponsorship. Can anyone help me out here.
I've received an interview for a position that seems interesting, but is in Singapore. How hard is it to navigate the visa situation there?
If I have a valid H1B stamp and am carrying my I-797 with me, do I need any other documents to enter the US back from India?
Should I get a job offer before applying to day 1 CPT or apply for the visa first and then start looking for jobs?
Expecting my first child in a couple months. Parents in India have been dying to come to the US but unable to due to the visa restrictions. Anyone know of any exceptions to the visa restrictions that may apply or any other workaround? (Besides staying in 3rd country for 14days) I am above 21, married, US citizen. Parents gave up their green cards and are on tourist visa 😔
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
I need advice for a green card?
Why won’t more employers offer the opportunity for international students to join them? I just convinced my startup to sponsor me and I’ve been leading the process. All I had to do was register us on E-verify (FREE), and hired a law firm to help us with the H1B which will cost $7K. I still have two years of stem OPT on top of that. I thought the process was way more complicated. Not sure why some firms say they don’t accept international students when the process is so straight forward.
Has anybody made the switch from Big 4 consulting to MBB? What was the interview process like, and how did you prepare?
I’m making 130 TC post MBA in NYC. I’m not unhappy about my job/company but it feels like there are a ton of better paying opps I could switch to. Am I right to think that? Would you be looking to move elsewhere in my position? Ive been in this role 1 year mainly doing market opp work

Have about $6k in SPY (0.09% expense ration). Does it make sense to sell and switch to VOO (0.03% expense)? Worth the near term capital agains tax for lower expense ratio over long term? Capital gains are about $900 and I’m planning on auto investing every month over the next few years.
Does anyone use anti-anxiety medication? Do you recommend or are there other health side effects that occur?
Any new parents, did you decide to circumcise your baby boy? Why and why not? I am conflicted, It’s not required in my culture , No one in my family had done it but looking at some benefits I am not sure if I should get it done for my newborn.
Does anyone know how long is the H1B processing time right now ? (For new visa). My case was received on May 21st - Still have not heard anything.
On job hunt - how long should I wait before I follow up on my interview process? Seeking opinions as I'm super anxious (have been laid off by ACN) it's my second last round and it's been almost a week. Thanks all!
Question for big 4 partners/Managing directors. Is becoming partner or MD a choice or if partner role is not available an employee accepts MD role? Also,are there any post retirement benefits for MD?
Since covid started I’ve been working with a team of doctors and scientists to develop a self contained rapid antigen test. Trials run by the cdc and NY health and hospitals have shown it’s as reliable as a pcr test but results come back in 15 min. We are looking to get the test into the market by the holidays but are in need of capital. Does anyone here have access to family offices or something similar?
